With a week to go before the unveiling of its new smartphone line, the manufacturer OnePlus presented this Tuesday (7) one of the features that will be present in the most powerful model of the family, the OnePlus 8 Pro. This is the Warp Charge 30 Wireless , a wireless charging technology, which will debut in this generation of the brand’s models.
According to the OnePlus forum post, the Warp Charge 30 Wireless is a 30W charger, capable of making the device go from 1% to 50% battery in just half an hour. To withstand so much energy transfer and heat generation, the accessory will have a fan to help with cooling, in addition to a chip dedicated to guarantee maximum efficiency in the process without wasting electricity.
The novelty was made possible by a partnership with Oppo – the two are independent subsidiaries of BBK Electronics, one of the largest technology companies in China. The colleague was responsible for developing the platform, optimized and customized for OnePlus devices.
In an interview with The Verge, the CEO of OnePlus, Pete Lau, also confirmed that the charger will be “more expensive than the average” of the competition, since it brings proprietary technology and a faster recharge.
The OnePlus 8 smartphone family will be officially unveiled on April 14, 2020, at noon (Brasília time). Warp Charge 30 Wireless must be announced on the same date.
