The OnePlus 7 is not slated to release until June, so there is not much buzz around it as yet. However, CEO Pete Lau recently told CNET that the company does not consider it worthwhile to add a wireless charging feature to its smartphones.
That's a pretty big hint that the OnePlus 7 will not have wireless charging.
"Wireless charging is far inferior."
"OnePlus charging is one of the best."
Lau is skeptical about wireless charging a device with a wireless pad. With the physical quick charge adapter, OnePlus says you can charge your phone by 50 percent in 20 minutes and fully in under an hour.
OnePlus is working hard to get it right.
OnePlus has a point in saying that wireless charging is inferior even compared with regular charging. But that's changing; Xiaomi, for example, claims that the Xiaomi Mi 9 has 20W wireless charging capability-two or three times the average.
OnePlus is at the MWC to display a prototype of its 5G smartphone, which will come to two carriers in Europe in Q2 , Lau declined to comment on the OnePlus 7, as well as rumors that it may drop the notch and mate a pop-out camera.
