The phone is all set to launch in a week's time and the company has given us some hints about what to expect from the OnePlus 5T.

Leaked documents, seen by TechRadar, suggest the device will cost £449 SIM-free, significantly less than rival handsets from Apple, Samsung and Google.

OnePlus 5T is launching on Nov 16 in NY and will be available for booking in India starting Nov 21.

OnePlus 5T isn't getting the wireless charging technology support, confirms CEO Pete Lau.

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

Wired quick charging solutions like ours clearly outshine wireless on quantitative measures.

The iPhone X has several new features that have amazed users across the globe, including the incorporation of an OLED display screen, and new facial recognition software. Lau says that wireless charging is an exciting concept that's matured a lot over the last few years. One thing that would be missing from the OnePlus 5T is wireless charging.

The pricing details of the upcoming OnePlus device recently surfaced and it has now come to light that the phone would be priced in at Rs. 32,999 for the base model. The company's CEO said that prices of mobile phone components are rising faster than house prices in Shenzhen, which could indicate that the OnePlus 5T will end up being more expensive than expected. The company took a huge step up with that phone, and showed the maturity that has led to the success it has enjoyed since then.

The point here is that wireless charging can't match the rate of power delivery that wired charging can, which is Dash Charge in this case, not to mention that users have to perfectly align the phone and the pad to reach the theoretical output of 15 watts. And I think he is right, I've used the Dash Charging myself and it is fantastic without any doubt. "You can't pick up your phone to game or take a photo while charging. Wirelessly charging more than one device at a time further divides that number, leading to even slower charging per device". "Given present-day infrastructures, wireless charging brings more limitations than freedom". Moreover, he mentioned that users can not pick up their phone to play a game or make a call during wireless charging so the current standard of wireless charging "brings more limitations than freedom".
