OnePlus 8 Pro will make a record for offering the fastest reversed wireless charging suspension. OnePlus will start the OnePlus 8 beside the OnePlus 8 Pro and OnePlus 8 Lite on April 14th.
OnePlus 8 Pro
The absence of wireless charging has been one of the obvious holes in OnePlus’ lineup that crops up every year, particularly as OnePlus’ phones have gotten greater and more useful and started to compete with other top smartphones. Notwithstanding this, OnePlus has earlier been fairly unenthusiastic about wireless charging in the history.
Earlier this year, the CEO of OnePlus said that even 10W fast wireless charging was too slow and “not worth it” compared to the wired fast-charging Warp Charge that OnePlus’ current phones offer. But thankfully OnePlus is gearing up to offer wireless charging this year, at least on the high-end OnePlus 8 Pro model.
And today we have some key information about the specs of this handset that reveals some really good surprises. First up, remember OnePlus said that until the wireless charging doesn’t become as fast as their wired warp charging they will not include the tech on their phones and they weren’t kidding because the OnePlus 8 Pro will have 30W of wireless charging capabilities which is the same as their 30W of wired warp charging.
So this means OnePlus will now tie with Xiaomi’s Mi 10 for the fastest wireless charging solution. Xiaomi has also showcased 40W of wireless charging solution but they’re yet to release a commercial handset featuring that tech.
Anyway, the next big surprise is the reverse wireless charging. The OnePlus 8 Pro will offer 30W of reverse wireless charging too. Yes, 30 freaking watts of reverse wireless charging solution. The fastest reverse wireless charging speed on the market right now is Xiaomi’s 10W solution offered on the Mi 10, so it’s a huge leap over the current tech which kinda makes me skeptical about this especially considering the fact that OnePlus has never done reverse wireless charging before.
But Ishan has great track record so I guess OnePlus is going to actually do this and as a matter of fact, would make a record for offering the fastest reverse wireless charging solution. We also have the exact launch date of the handset. According to Ishan Agarwal, the OnePlus 8 series will launch earlier than usual on the 14th of April so not much longer to see just what the firm will bring to the table in 2020.
Apparently the 120Hz display will be only exclusive to the Pro variant, the OnePlus 8 and 8 Lite will get 90Hz display. Also, these are the battery capacities of all the variants and these are the display sizes. Only the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro will offer curved displays while the lite variant will have a flat display. Every model will have an in-display fingerprint scanner and I guess it’s going to be optical and not ultrasonic.
Snapdragon 865 chipset will be onboard on the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro while the lite variant will have MediaTek Dimensity 1000 chipset to keep the costs down. Ishan says the UK pricing of the Lite model could be as low as £400. With that said, let me know what are your thoughts on the specs of the OnePlus 8 series down in the comments and as always I’ll see you tomorrow…Peace out!
