A new rumour suggests OnePlus may finally embrace wireless charging.

It is speculated that the feature will be available on the OnePlus 8 Pro only.

OnePlus is expected to launch the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro in May 2020.

Information circulating the internet suggests that the OnePlus 8 Pro could sport wireless charging. The information is posted on twitter via leakster Max J. who tweeted an image of a smartphone charging on a wireless charging pad, with the caption, “Charge like a pro”. The phone doesn't explicitly look like a OnePlus 8 Pro, but the “Charge like a pro” cation has led many to believe that the upcoming OnePlus 8 Pro will support wireless charging. One needs to take this information with a grain of salt as OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has said that he finds wireless charging "too slow" and "it's just not worth it" when compared to the fast charging technology that comes with Warp Charge. This information comes from an interview on The Vergecast. 

It is also speculated that the wireless charging capabilities will only make an appearance on the OnePlus 8 Pro and not the OnePlus 8. It is also speculated that a mid-ranged OnePlus christened the OnePlus 8 Lite will make an appearance alongside the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro. 

In November, Max J. also tweeted that the OnePlus 8 could feature a 120Hz display. In January 2020, OnePlus confirmed the existence of a 2K 120Hz display. According to the company, the new screen uses MEMC technology for smoother video playback and a QHD+ resolution. It also comes with 4096 levels of brightness control.

OnePlus isn't the only company looking at implementing a 120Hz display on its smartphone. Samsung is expected to implement the same on its upcoming Galaxy S20 flagship and Oppo is also expected to implement the technology in the upcoming Find X2.
