OnePlus opens The Lab for the OnePlus 5T

OnePlus opens The Lab for the OnePlus 5T

Meanwhile, Pete Lau, the company's Founder and CEO responding to a Weibo comment, also revealed the OnePlus 5T will be priced under CNY 4,000 (approximately $600). Amidst all the preparation to announce its next flagship phone and the successor of the OnePlus 5, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has confirmed a few features of the 5T already.

The reason why the company changed its decision is that wireless charging gives the power output of 15 watts which is comparatively less than what dash charge technology offers. The iPhone X utilizes wireless charging, a feature appreciated by countless users, consolidating a great addition to the iPhone.

The main reason to retain the dash charge technology is attributed to the fact that the technology is capable of delivering 20 watts of power.

Pete shared two reasons why the company has chose to stick with propriety Dash Charge support. You also need to ensure that the handset is positioned correctly - or it won't charge. For those that aren't local or won't be able to make it to the event, you can enjoy the show through the firm's live stream on the same day.

OnePlus is also widely-tipped to drop the physical Home Button from the front of the phone to create space for the display.

Twitter halts 'broken' verification system
I was at @ Twitter when #Ferguson was on the wall in the Commons. "I'm taking ambien, xanax and I had been drinking last night". In what appeared to be a response to that overflowing of anger, Twitter said it "paused all general verifications".

Just like other technologies, wireless charging has been improving to be more efficient and practical for everyday use, particularly Qi. Wait for a week and the result will be out, whether the users will embrace or reject the OnePlus 5T.

Needless to say, it's recommended to take the leaks and rumors with a grain of salt, but at the very least, the OnePlus 5T won't have wireless charging but will have a headphone jack.

OnePlus 5T may be made available at the same price as its predecessor OnePlus 5, reports said. The point of charging should be to have the phone spend as little time as possible connected to the charger. As pointed out by XDA, having wireless charging could benefit a lot of users by allowing them to have short but frequent intermittent charging all throughout the day. "We'll consider adopting the wireless charging technology when the time is right".

Reading between the lines, that would indicate that Lau is telling us that the cost of production has gone up, so expect a price increase for the end consumer.
