OnePlus 8T to support 65W fast charging courtesy of Warp Charge 65
OnePlus 8T launches on October 14 in India
The OnePlus 8T Warp Charge 65 fast charging adapter has been revealed by CEO Pete Lau, ahead of the official launch of OnePlus 8T on October 14 in India. The company detailed its next-generation 65W, Warp Charge 65, fast charging solution last week and later in the weekend, Lau showed off the retail charging adapter for the Warp Charge 65.
OnePlus CEO Pete Lau posted a picture on Weibo revealing the 65W fast charging adapter with a Type-C cable. Notably, this is the first charging adapter by the company to have type-C to type-C charging adapter and by the looks of it, the adapter does look a bit smaller than the current Warp Charge 30T adapter.
OnePlus 8T is confirmed to pack in a 4,500mAh battery that can go from 0-100% in 39 minutes tops or 0-58% in 15 minutes. OnePlus 8T uses a dual-cell battery technology that charges two separate cells at more than 30W simultaneously while keeping the thermals in check. The Warp Charge 65 adapter also supports 45W Power Delivery and is backwards compatible with all previous Warp Charge 65 standards including Warp Charge 30T and 20W fast charging.
According to the latest rumour, OnePlus is expected to announce multiple products alongside the OnePlus 8T on October 14. However, there is no official word on what these products are. Twitter chatter indicates these products can include a power bank, a smartwatch and a Special Edition of OnePlus Nord. Having said that, we will advise our readers to take the Twitter chatter with a pinch of salt.
Expecting a lot of OnePlus stuff to launch and not just OnePlus 8T.
Especially for India. Like 8T + almost 5 in total. #OnePlus8T
