OnePlus is ready to introduce it’s latest offering OnePlus 6T later this month. Talking to CNET in an interview OnePlus CEO discussed a few features of the OnePlus 6T. He talked about the water resistant feature of the smartphone, the lack of wireless charging capabilities and why they have decided to remove the headphone connection.
OnePlus 6T – Without IP Certification Why?
During the discussion, Lau said that though the OnePlus 6T will not be IP certified it will still be more resistant to water. Like its predecessor OnePlus 6 which also is water resistant to a certain degree and has no issues when you use the phone in a rain shower. Comparatively the OnePlus 6T is more water resistant, and the company has consciously chosen not to give the phone an IP certification. It was pure business sense as the certification would have incurred more cost, resulting an increase in the sale price of the OnePlus 6T making it more expensive.
OnePlus 6T – Why No Wireless Charging?
The latest OnePlus 6T will also be missing the wireless charging feature. OnePlus 6 also lacked this feature and users will have to use a wired charger to charge their phone even with the OnePlus 6T.
Lau clarified the lack of wireless charging feature, as it had to do with the speed of wireless charging.

OnePlus phones come with yet another feature known as Dash Charge, it is a fast charging technique. He further added that wireless charging was not worthwhile as it cannot charge the phones as fast as you can with a cable, though there is not much of a difference. OnePlus CEO also said that the company is trying to figure out a way to solve this.
OnePlus 6T – Why No Headphone Connections?
Lastly, he explained why there is not headphone connection in the OnePlus 6T. The fingerprint scanner has something to do with this, which is located just under the screen this time. A feature called Screen Unlock has been introduced which also needs some extra space in the housing. Also, the absence of the headphone jack might have positive effects on the battery life. Rumors suggest the OnePlus 6t has a 3700 mAh battery. It is almost 10% larger than the earlier OnePlus 6 and also comes with a screen which is slightly larger than the OnePlus 6.
