OnePlus has officially confirmed now that the upcoming OnePlus 9 Pro will indeed feature faster 50W wireless charging. The fast wireless charging technology for the OnePlus 9 Pro has been in rumors for quite some time. The company after refusing to adopt the wonderful charging technology finally introduced the 30W wireless charging to the OnePlus 8 Pro. But this time the phone maker has increased the power to 50W in its successor.
As per the reports, the new 50W wireless charging in the OnePlus 9 Pro is supported in both portrait and landscape orientations and fills the battery from 1% to 100% in just 43 minutes. Though this will only be available in the Pro model, the standard OnePlus 9 will also have the 15W Qi charging. The smartphone brand showed off the charging speeds of this new charger in a teaser video posted on Twitter. The video shows that the OnePlus 9 Pro charges fully in just 43 minutes, but an iPhone next to it plugged with a wired charger only gets to 72% in that time.
Currently, there is no information on whether the standard OnePlus 9 will also have wireless charging support or not. But its predecessor, the OnePlus 8 was not equipped with wireless charging technology. However, for the Pro version, there will be both wired and wireless charging, and like the OnePlus 8 Pro, the company should ship a 65W charging brick too.
The OnePlus 9 series will use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 system-on-a-chip (SoC) and is expected to launch on March 23.
