“OnePlus sister brand OPPO has recently become a member of the Wireless Power Consortium”
OnePlus 7 could come with support for Qi wireless charging standard, a new development suggests. OnePlus sister brand OPPO has become a member of the Wireless Power Consortium, which promotes and develops the Qi wireless charging standard. Any smartphone maker looking to produce products with Qi wireless support need to be a member of the consortium. Since OPPO is currently listed on the WPC website but doesn’t have any phones that support wireless charging, there is speculation that its future phones as well as the OnePlus 7 will support wireless charging.
OPPO and OnePlus operate under the same parent company, BBK Electronics, and share supply chains and technologies in their respective smartphones. That’s why many of their smartphone look and function similarly.
OPPO also filed a patent last year for a 15W wireless charging technology and according to ChargerLab, its 15W wireless charging technology has been developed and is ready for use, the same was confirmed by the company during a private event last year. However we’ve not yet seen any OPPO device with wireless charging capabilities.
Almost all major smartphone manufacturers including Apple, Samsung, Huawei, Google, LG, and many others are members of the Wireless Power Consortium. And although the exact date of when OPPO joined the consortium is not known, what we’re sure about is that you can expect an OPPO or OnePlus device (most probably OnePlus 7) with wireless charging technology this year.
