OnePlus 6T won't feature wireless charging or IP rating

OnePlus 6T Has Edge To Edge Display, Reveals Official Teaser

We've heard quite a bit about the OnePlus 6T, including some things from OnePlus directly. Now, the company's CEO Pete Lau also confirmed the device will lack the wireless charging support and also the IP rating.

As we have discussed everything that is related to the exterior outlook of the phone, let's delve more on what is coming inside the OnePlus 6T. The OnePlus 6T will be the successor to the OnePlus 6, which is expected to offer unique features and will be one of a kind smartphone from OnePlus.

Removing the headphone jack has been the most challenging task for Pete Lau. Keeping the headphone jack allows our users to continue to take full advantage of the excellent range of audio choices on the market. The interview with Lau reveals that new technology is the in-display fingerprint sensor. The latter had a uni-brow like physical space on top housing a camera and companion sensors for Face Unlock feature.

Liu continued: "After you experience the Screen Unlock you'll fall in love with it". [You'll] realise that it's the experience that you wanted.

Canada, US make progress in bid to save NAFTA, no deal yet
After three-way talks stalled this summer, the USA and Mexico last month announced they had reached a separate deal. One big uncertain question for USA and foreign automakers is whether US tariffs on Canadian steel will be lifted.

Earlier this month, pictures of the upcoming OnePlus smartphone appeared on Weibo that also suggest the device could feature a tiny notch. Though the notch area in the OnePlus 6 is among the smallest when compared with other notch screen-based smartphones, it would be trimmed even more and reduced to a size of a big dot, enough to accommodate just the front camera. At the moment OnePlus have one of the fastest wired charging solutions available and believe that until wireless charging can get up to the same speed there is little value in it.

"This has been one of the most hard decisions for us to make", said Lau.

Will a lack of a headphone jack, IP rating or wireless charging make you look elsewhere or is it something you'd prefer to have but not a deal breaker? He said that OnePlus 6T is more water-resistant than any of its predecessors and can survive a drop in the sink or a splash during a rainstorm. That's not necessarily a bad move, considering that the cost would be passed on to the buyer. Apparently issues at hand include the extra cost of getting their devices certified, and the fact that "the number of users that are taking their phone to go swimming are few and far between". Excess heat generation would also have been a concern, Lau noted. But several OnePlus fans have been asking for wireless charging feature since the day OnePlus 6 released, but OnePlus is not incorporating it in the upcoming OnePlus 6T.
