The OnePlus 7T series will come with up to 23% faster charging out of the box
Pete Lau, the chief executive officer (CEO) at OnePlus, has had an interview with TechRadar in which the 7T series' new charging standard was discussed for the first time. This, apparently, is the successor to Warp Charge 30, with which the 7 Pro shipped. Lau asserts that it can power a device over 20% faster (presumably compared to the older version), even if said phone's screen is in use at the time.
Warp Charge 30 is associated with appreciably rapid charging itself, and is rated to do so at 30 watts (W). Lau indicated that the 30T upgrade does not differ in this respect. He also noted that it was in a virtually finished state when the 7 series was ready for launch. However, the OEM decided to hold it back until the next release as it required further refinement.
30W charging may sound impressive; however, other companies are linked to even more effective standards that are both currently on the market or in development. They include the Fast Charge technology at Vivo, which is slated to attain 120W speeds in the near future. OPPO's own new SuperVOOC standard is set at 65W.
As for Xiaomi, its own latest advance in this sphere is called Mi Charge Turbo. It is also rated for 30W charging, despite being a wireless modality. Despite this possibility, OnePlus has chosen to eschew the same option for yet another product cycle, maintaining that it is still too slow for its liking.
