San Francisco, Feb 27: Premium smartphone maker OnePlus' next smartphone, the OnePlus 7, won't support wireless charging as the technology is "inferior", company's CEO Pete Lau has confirmed, according to the CNET. The smartphone player offers looks and internals found in flagship phones at a lower price, but one feature that continues to elude OnePlus devices is the efficient wireless charging. Lau still doesn't think it's worth adding to his products, according to reports on Tuesday. OnePlus Join Hands With Qualcomm For Starting 5G Trials in India.
