OnePlus, which has not been hot on wireless charging support for quite some time, finally broke its stubbornness. OnePlus, which is a member of the "Wireless Power Consortium", which should be a member of companies that want to add wireless charging support to their phones, has thus announced that it will offer wireless charging support to their phones.
Smartphones are becoming more powerful and functional every day. Technology manufacturers are now providing their smartphones with more powerful cameras, larger batteries, and higher wired and wireless charging support to charge those batteries. In this case, consumers can use their smartphones for longer periods of time and charge them faster.
Today, many smartphone manufacturers offer wireless charging support on their devices. OnePlus, on the other hand, has always preferred to keep its distance from wireless charging technology; at least until now. The company has taken the first official steps to offer wireless charging support on its new smartphones.
OnePlus recently announced that the wireless charging feature is slower than wired charging, and therefore it did not welcome wireless charging support. However, this was not the right approach because recently we have seen products with wireless charging support that offer better performance than wired fast charging. Looks like OnePlus didn't miss it either.
It's not an arbitrary practice for smartphone makers to offer wireless charging support. If a company wants to add wireless charging support to its smartphones, it first needs to become a member of the Wireless Power Consortium, also known as WPC. OnePlus had been outside this consortium in previous periods but recent information obtained made it clear that OnePlus was a member of the WPC.

According to the information above, OnePlus appears to be a full member of the WPC. However, the company has made no statement on this issue in recent periods. It seems that OnePlus wanted to quietly join the WPC and surprise consumers with a big surprise, but this situation has been revealed through careful eyes.
The company has been working on two phone models, the OnePlus 8 and the OnePlus 8 Pro. The information that has emerged about these phones reveals that the phones will have a Snapdragon 865 processor and a 5G modem. In addition, the Pro model 4'li rear camera setup is said to be the normal Model 3'li camera setup. OnePlus doesn't seem to want to deprive its phones with all these features of wireless charging support.
