OnePlus 5T Could Be More Expensive Than The OnePlus 5

OnePlus 5T to go on flash sale in India on November 21 The OnePlus 5T won't get wireless charging, and that's fine

Pete Lau, the company's CEO, tweeted about the new phone and the tweet hints about the higher price of OnePlus 5T. In contrast, some of the best wireless charging pads market a support of 15 watts of power, but that's only if you position your phone correctly.

He adds that Dash Charge is power efficient and stays cool, and that for wireless charging to be truly convenient there need to be charging pads readily available around your home, which can add up to a significant expense.

Having said that, even if the OnePlus 5T isn't going to feature Wireless Charging, Pete Lau hasn't denied the possibility of implementing it in future OnePlus smartphones.

But it would also presumably push up the cost of the phone, and a relatively low price is one of the main selling points of OnePlus handsets. But given the current state of this technology, Dash Charge is still the superior choice. According to Lau's tweet, he talks about the rising cost of smartphone components, but he also adds that smartphones are getting better as well, and that OnePlus users will "appreciate" what's coming.

Responding to to a query raised by a fan on the possibility of OnePlus "ridiculously" hiking the price of the OnePlus 5T, Lau said that it is a "great product" and that he already has it.

Recently, Gionee made it clear that it will be embracing 16W wireless charging for M7 Plus, but this doesn't seem to influence OnePlus.

Their Dash Charge technology produces 20W of power which "reliably" gives a day's power in half an hour to their device. The device is set to be launched on 16th November in NY. He believes that this - wireless technology has a lot of space to develope now. But, that's not the case with dash charger - you can simply plug-in and use you phone for anything and at anytime. Until wireless charging can reach that level of speed, it will remain my less-preferred option to true fast charging. You can't pick up your phone to game or take a photo while charging.

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