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

Leaked render of One Plus 6T

OnePlus's Carl Pei said previously that the decision to remove the jack has to do with adding new technology as well as improving battery life.

While there weren't many reports concerning the specs, it is believed to pack a Snapdragon 845 processor and at least 6GB of RAM, like the OnePlus 6. I'm a big fan of their phones, as are many of you, but I'm OK if they want to stop acting like something they aren't.

Finally Lau revealed that like its predecessors, the OnePlus 6T will not have an IP water resistance rating.

As part of its marketing program, OnePlus has opened up The Lab - as it has done with previous models of its phones. It happened with the OnePlus 5T and OnePlus 6, but with the OnePlus 6T, the company is going back to its favourite position, thanks to the in-display fingerprint scanning technology. Now, even though it is nearly impossible to tell the OnePlus 6T and OnePlus 6 apart in the images, we know that the OnePlus 6 is going to be marginally (0.45mm) thicker than the OnePlus 6 because of the fingerprint sensor that is going to be embedded under the screen.

Other bits and pieces the OnePlus CEO touched on were regarding wireless charging and an IP rating.

Another hint given by Pete Lau during the interaction with CNET is regarding the price of the OnePlus 6T. Lau didn't say as much, but it's easy speculation to make considering that he mentioned manufacturing costs twice during the interview.

Lau also confirmed there will be no wireless charging on the 6T.

"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". Excess heat generation would also have been a concern, Lau noted. This event will release the 6T, which is the increasingly traditional upgrade to a mid-year flagship debut.

Chinese social media website Weibo has got hold of the invite for the India launch of the OnePlus 6T.

However, if OnePlus is able to bundle some of these accessories with the upcoming flagship, it will make the smartphone deal a whole lot sweeter for a lot of customers.
