OnePlus 6T Won't Feature Wireless Charging or IP Rating, Says CEO

Leaked render of One Plus 6T

The image, leaked by WinFuture, shows the new OnePlus 6T, revealing a huge screen with only a tiny notch at the top, dual-cameras on the back and most importantly not a fingerprint scanner in sight.

After you experience the Screen Unlock you'll fall in love with it. "[You'll] realize that it's the experience that you wanted". In the process, he confirmed that the upcoming 6T would not feature wireless charging as OnePlus is "working hard" on the technology.

However, he said he believed OnePlus fans would adore the new method of unlocking when the phone releases later this year. According to Pete Lau, OnePlus will make use of wireless charging technology only when it can offer charging speeds as fast as its current wired technology- Dash Charge.

The decision, however, is driven by the new screen unlocking technology which the company has already teased on the social media. He did not reveal the exact price of the upcoming smartphone, but said that the inclusion of an in-display fingerprint sensor is one of the key reasons for the price rise. In-display fingerprint sensors are rare in smartphones now, a handful of devices from Vivo such as Vivo X20 Plus UD, Vivo X21 and Vivo Nex and OPPO R17 come with an in-display fingerprint scanner.

- In India, OnePlus 6T is likely to have a starting price of around Rs 35,000. He also explained why the OnePlus 6T isn't getting wireless charging either, or why the phone won't have a water and dust resistance rating.

While the operation was reported by CNN on Sunday, the details about the confrontation emerged Tuesday morning Asia time. Beijing claims all of the remote island chain amid its vast territorial assertions throughout the South China Sea.

OnePlus has advertised OnePlus 6 as water-resistant but never talked about any kind of IP certification.

"The number of users that are taking their phone to go swimming are few and far between", he said, adding that having everyone pay $30 more "for the sake of an IP rating", is "unreasonable".

The OnePlus 6T is the successor to the OnePlus 6 and is expected to follow tradition by packing a litany of flagship features in a device that costs lower than all of its premium rivals. But across the web, and in China, there are websites that have no interest in hiding the OnePlus 6T.

OnePlus might have a reputation for making flagship smartphones that are affordable but that doesn't mean they're behind the times.
