OnePlus is one smartphone manufacturer who showed the world how to master the Fast Charging technology. Now, they are coming up with Warp Wireless Fast Charging for OnePlus 8 Series devices. In a recent interview to The Verge, OnePlus CEO, Pete Lau had told the interviewer that the OnePlus 8s will come with wireless fast charging. Now, OnePlus in its official discussion forum, has posted the wireframe of a wireless charger which doubles as a stand. The sketch shows that there is two bumper kind of thing to control the thermodynamics of the phone and the charger as we expect it to heat up since the fast charging technology is involved.
When is the launch?
The Warp Wireless Fast Charger from OnePlus could be announced a day prior to OnePlus 8 Launch Popup Event on April 14, 2020, or on the April 14th itself.
Any other info?
Pete Lau also said that this is a proprietary technology and OnePlus is willing to extend its licence to other manufacturers. As we all know, OnePlus has shed its economy flagship killer badge and is more focusing on premium devices, expect this charger to be little expensive than the Qi chargers, but it will be worth if they are able to beat the competition, which is more likely to happen.
Another best thing about this is the Warp Wireless Fast Charger from OnePlus will also support Qi standards, where you can use it to charge other Qi wireless charging supported devices like iPhones and Samsungs.
The charging speed is going to be 50% in 30 minutes. That beats some of the flagships’ wired fast charging.
Considering its capability, for sure there will be a good amount of heat that gets generated. As we see two bumpers on the charging stand, which helps to keep the temperature low, Lau discussed placing a fan in the Charger itself to keep the phone and charger cool while charging. This is necessary as higher temperatures reduce the efficiency. To contain the noise that could go up to 30db and may come with night mode with slower fan rotations to reduce the noise.
OnePlus may officially name this as “Warp Charge 30 Wireless“.
