Last week, OnePlus confirmed that the OnePlus 8T will come with support for 65W fast charging. They also revealed some key details about the power brick that will chip with the device. Today, the CEO of OnePlus, Pete Lau, decided to share a render of the charging brick.
The image which was posted on Weibo confirms the fast charging technology will be officially called Warp Charge 65. The charger has rounded corners and appears to be slightly bigger than the Warp Charge 30T power brick.
As previously revealed, the power brick has a USB-C port, ditching the USB-A port of the previous models. The image also shows the USB-C to USB-C charging cable that will ship with the OnePlus 8T.
While the power brick will charge the OnePlus 8T at 65W, allowing users to charge the phone’s 4500mAh battery from empty to 58% in 15 minutes, and a full charge in just 39 minutes; it also supports other charging protocols. OnePlus says it is not only backward compatible with previous Warp Charge technologies, but it also supports 45W Power Delivery, making it suitable for use with compatible devices such as the MacBook Pro and the Dell XPS 13.
If you are concerned about safety, OenPlus says the Warp Charge 65 power brick has a built-in encryption chip. There is also an encryption chip in the cable and 12 temperature sensors inside the phone. The OnePlus 8T also has a new heat dissipation system to keep the temperature at a safe level.
While the power brick will be bundled with the OnePlus 8T, we expect it to be available for purchase separately for those who want a spare or want to get it for their other devices.
The OnePlus 8T launches on October 14 in India and on October 15 in China. OnePlus should disclose more details about the charger at the launch event.
