Though, in a recent interview given to CNET, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau says the next-gen OnePlus smartphone will not support wireless charging.

In other words, it looks like it'll be another year without wireless charging on a OnePlus phone. It's no secret that OnePlus' proprietary Warp Charge is one of the best we've seen in the industry and works only with a wired connection. And it must be popular with consumers, including OnePlus device buyers, if it keeps coming up every time a new phone launches.

Now, according to the latest report from CNET, the OnePlus 7 will miss out on a significant feature, which is available on smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S10, Xiaomi Mi 9, and the LG V50 ThinQ. It has apparently been experimenting with fast wireless charging, but hasn't yet worked out a method that doesn't involve overheating.

We, however, thought we might be making headway a while back when OPPO joined the Wireless Power Consortium, indicating that a future OPPO and possibly OnePlus device will support Qi wireless charging. He further states wireless charging is pretty slow wherein on the Oneplus users can get 50% of charge under 20 minutes and full charge merely in an hour - thanks to the Warp Charge introduced with OnePlus 6T Mclaren Edition.

Fran drew his technical foul 58 seconds later. "Our press was good in the second half, not the first half". The Hawkeyes scored the first seven points of the game before Ohio State answered with nine in a row.

Over the past few years, wireless charging has become a feature that differentiates premium phones from the rest of the less-impressive pack.

When asked about expected growth in India and the company's plan around encashing growth projections with the advent of 5G, Lau said "Growth is not something which we don't forecast but it is a result of performance and action". And what wireless charging improvements would you make? OnePlus has been working with Qualcomm on the project since 2017, and the company successfully sent a tweet over 5G past year.

At Mobile World Congress 2019, it seems every company is releasing either a foldable phone or a 5G phone (or both).
