“Pete Lau has claimed that the new charging technology manages to charge phones faster without causing overheating issues”
OnePlus 7T, which is slated to go official on September 26th in India, will feature 30W charging technology called Warp Charge 30T, the company’s CEO Pete Lau has confirmed. Now, Lau has not claimed any charging times but has said that the new Warp Charge 30T technology charges the phone 23 percent faster than the Warp Charge 30, which was introduced with the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition. “We believe that Warp Charge 30T offers the best charging solution for real-world usage,” Lau told TechRadar. “You can charge the phone at 23 percent faster speeds, even while using the device,” he added.
Notably, Lau said that the Warp Charge 30T doesn’t rely on high voltage to achieve fast charging speeds, unlike some other tech standards in the industry, and therefore avoids overheating and allows users to use the phone even while charging. Considering that the Warp Charge 30 was no slouch, we can only expect the Warp Charge 30T (6V, 5A) to deliver some really impressive charging times.
OnePlus 7T specifications
If we talk about the leaked specifications, the OnePlus 7T is expected to feature a 6.55-inch full-HD+ AMOLED screen with 90Hz refresh rate and will be powered by the Snapdragon 855 Plus processor. In terms of optics, the handset has been tipped to feature a triple camera setup at the back, consisting of a 48MP + 12MP + 16MP module, and a 16MP front sensor for selfies. The OnePlus 7T has been tipped to be offered with up to 8GB RAM and up to 256GB storage. A 3,800mAh battery will likely fuel the handset. The handset is expected to run Android 10-based OxygenOS build out of the box. Just like the predecessor, you can expect there to be an optical in-display fingerprint sensor. Although the 7T Pro is rumoured to come with similar specs as the regular model, the Pro model has been tipped to feature a bigger screen and a larger battery capacity compared to the OnePlus 7T.
