Update 7th April 2020: Shortly after the leaked renders, OnePlus has confirmed that the OnePlus 8 Series will feature wireless charging and will be called Warp Charge 30 Wireless. It has a peak output of up to 30W and will charge the OnePlus 8 Series up to 50% in half an hour.
OnePlus says that to achieve the 30W wireless speeds, they have combined the industry’s first isolated charge pump with Warp wireless direct charging architecture which ensures a 97% charge efficiency and reduces heat. The wireless charger’s current and voltage is controlled by a customized chip and the chip enables real-time communication between the charger and the phone.
Apart from this, Warp Charge 30 Wireless is also compatible with Qi wireless chargers at 5W speeds and you can also get 10W speeds with a 10W EPP standard charger. The company has shared more details about its technology in the forum.
Earlier: OnePlus is set to launch the OnePlus 8 Series in an online event on April 14th and the key specifications are already confirmed by the company. While we are just a week away from the official launch, the leaks haven’t stopped yet and now the latest renders of the wireless charging dock, Transparent Bumper Case, and Screen Protector have surfaced.
OnePlus joined the Wireless Power Consortium earlier this year, hinting at the wireless charging feature on OnePlus 8 Series. The top-end OnePlus 8 Pro is said to come with wireless charging support and the latest press renders show how the wireless charging dock from OnePlus looks like.
The wireless charging dock will reportedly deliver 30W speeds and charge the OnePlus 8 Pro to 50% in 30 minutes and 100% in 80 minutes. To prevent the charging dock from overheating, it is said to pack a cooling fan inside with ‘AI Sleep Mode’ that will purportedly turn off the cooling fan at night.
Furthermore, the dock is also said to feature overheating protection and dust detection. Apart from this, the renders of the Transparent Bumper Case and Screen Protector have surfaced as well. The images of the OnePlus 8 Series in this render is the same as the press images that surfaced recently.
OnePlus Warp Charge 30 wireless charger is said to cost €70 (US$ 76 / Rs. 5760 approx.), but we suggest you take this information with a grain of salt. We should know more information in the coming days.
