OnePlus on Thursday officially confirmed that the OnePlus 8T 5G will feature the new Warp Charge 65 fast charging solution. This is the company’s fastest charging technology yet and is more than double the charging speed of its predecessor. Warp Charge 65 will be able to charge the OnePlus 8T 5G’s 4,500mAh battery fully in just 39 minutes, which is similar to what OPPO and Realme offer with their respective 65W fast charging solutions. The OnePlus 8T can charge up to 58 percent in just 15 minutes.
“Charging should be quick and simple to help make your digital life as burdenless as possible,” said OnePlus CEO Pete Lau. “With OnePlus’ focus on delivering a fast and smooth flagship experience, we changed our approach to fast charging with the OnePlus 8T 5G. Our new Warp Charge 65 technology will continue to transform the way people think about charging.”
The OnePlus 8T 5G will come with a new twin-battery configuration that will allow the device to charge more than twice as fast as previous OnePlus flagships with Warp Charge 30T. With this new system, both the batteries can charge at more than 30W simultaneously without overheating the phone. Additionally, the OnePlus Warp Charge 65 power adapter will be compatible with other devices and features a dual-end USB-C port design. It also supports 45W PD charging.
OnePlus 8T 5G launch event is set for October 14th. The smartphone will go on sale in India through Amazon. The smartphone is already confirmed to launch with a 120Hz Fluid AMOLED display like the OnePlus 8 Pro. Other specifications rumoured include the Snapdragon 865 SoC, 48MP quad cameras, and up to 12GB RAM. OnePlus 8T price is expected to start from €599 (approx Rs 51,700), based on a listing on Amazon Germany a few days ago.
