The OnePlus 9 Pro will feature a 45W wireless charging, considerable increase compared to its predecessor which supported 30W wireless charging. The new information comes via a leak by tipster Max Jambor, who shared the information on Twitter. OnePlus has been steadily new features to its smartphones and with the OnePlus 8 Pro last year, it had introduced wireless charging. In 2021, it looks like the company will improve on this further with the upcoming phone.
OnePlus will still be playing catchup in terms of faster wireless charging speeds given brands like Oppo, Huawei and Xiaomi already have better wireless charging specifications. For instance, Xiaomi recently launched Mi 11 in China which has support for 50W wireless charging.
Along with 45W wireless charging, the OnePlus 9 Pro is also expected to support reverse wireless charging for charging accessories like truly wireless earbuds or a smartwatch. However, OnePlus Buds do not support wireless charging. On the other hand, OnePlus’ smartwatch is yet to be revealed. OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has confirmed that the company is working on a new smartwatch, which is expected later this year.
The leaks also suggest that the OnePlus 9 will also have support for wireless charging this time around, but the speed has not been specified. It is not yet clear whether the rumoured OnePlus 9 Lite will get wireless charging or not.
OnePlus 9 Pro: Expected Specifications
OnePlus 9 Pro will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor. OnePlus may ditch the curved display in favour of flat display, which was seen on OnePlus 8T. The higher refresh rate is a possibility too which help the company target gamers as well. The wired fast-charging on the phone is expected to be 65W. As per the leaked photos, the rear camera module will have two large sensors and one smaller one for macro photography.
