The OnePlus 9 Pro has 45W wireless charging, which is a significant increase over its predecessor, which supports 30W wireless charging. The new information comes from a leak from tipster Max Jambor, who shared the information on Twitter. OnePlus has been constantly adding new features to its smartphones and introduced wireless charging with the OnePlus 8 Pro last year. It looks like the company will continue to improve on this with the upcoming phone in 2021.
OnePlus will still catch up in terms of faster wireless charging speeds as brands like Oppo, Huawei, and Xiaomi already have better wireless charging specifications. For example, Xiaomi recently launched Mi 11 in China, which supports 50W wireless charging.
In addition to wireless charging with 45 W, the OnePlus 9 Pro should also support wireless reverse charging for charging accessories such as real wireless earphones or a smartwatch. However, OnePlus Buds doesn’t support wireless charging. On the other hand, the OnePlus smartwatch has yet to be revealed. Pete Lau, CEO of OnePlus, 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 support wireless charging this time around, but the speed has not been stated. It is not yet clear whether the rumored OnePlus 9 Lite should be charged wirelessly or not.
OnePlus 9 Pro: Expected Specifications
OnePlus 9 Pro is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor. OnePlus may ditch the curved display in favor of the flat display seen on the OnePlus 8T. The higher refresh rate is also a way that helps the company appeal to gamers too. The wired fast charge of the phone is expected to be 65W. According to the leaked photos, the rear camera module has two large sensors and a smaller one for macro photography.
