OnePlus 5T Price launch date availability and all you need to know

The CEO confirmed this fact in the OnePlus forums.

OnePlus 5T isn't getting the wireless charging technology support, confirms CEO Pete Lau. No, not yet. The OnePlus team has simply clarified that it won't have wireless charging yet as Dash Charge is still the best choice for them.

Lau also illustrates two reasons on why he feel dash charge is superior and makes more sense over wireless charge, for the time being. It is true that wireless charging doesn't produce enough electrical juice to "fast charge" your smartphone and doesn't even compare to OnePlus' dash charge technology. There's no denying the convenience of being able to charge your phone simply by putting it down onto a pad.

Apart from the absence of the wireless charging, the company has already confirmed that OnePlus 5T will be retaining the 3.5mm audio jack, contrary to the growing trend of removing the headphone jack in favour of USB-based audio transfer.

Lau also elaborated that wireless charging isn't as convenient as conventional wired charging. Wireless charging delivers low power and in result, the device takes longer to charge.


TechRadar has managed to get some confidential documents that show the price of the 5T and it is set to be the same as the OnePlus 5 in the UK.

Recently, Gionee made it clear that it will be embracing 16W wireless charging for M7 Plus, but this doesn't seem to influence OnePlus. The OnePlus 5T will go on sale in North America and Europe on November 21. The technology has been around for a while, but has been generating a lot of buzz again because of its inclusion in the new Apple iPhones. You also need to ensure that the handset is positioned correctly - or it won't charge. And you can't use your phone while it charges, since picking it up will stop the charging.

As usual, OnePlus is teasing and confirming on the features that will be arriving on the OnePlus 5T before its official announcement.

They said that they did consider it and that they will offer it if the time is right but it is clear that they don't think now is the right time.
