OnePlus might include 65W fast charging support in a future flagship
After months of leaks and teasers, OnePlus finally launched its latest flagships — the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro — early last month. As expected, the devices featured top-of-the-line specifications, including Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 865 chip, up to 12GB LPDDR5 RAM, up to 256GB UFS 3.0+ storage, and more. However, much like its previous flagships, the company only included 30W fast wired charging on the OnePlus 8 series. Since several other manufacturers have already released devices with support for even faster wired charging, we expected the company to also opt for a 50W or 65W charging solution in its latest flagships. But it seems like OnePlus has reserved that for a future device.
According to a recent report from MySmartPrice, OnePlus has already been working on a 65W fast charging solution and its 65W fast charger was recently spotted in a TÜV Rheinland safety certification. As you can see in the image below, the 65W fast charger goes by the model numbers VCA7JA, WC1007A, and S065AG, and it supports a maximum output of 6.5A at 10V.
We suspect that this new 65W fast charging solution from the company is based on OPPO’s 65W SuperVOOC 2.0 which recently debuted with the OPPO Find X2 and Find X2 Pro, as the company is known for sharing charging technologies with OPPO. The 65W fast charging solution from OPPO is capable of charging a 4,000mAh battery to full in just 30 minutes and it would be a great addition to the next OnePlus flagship, which could be either the OnePlus 8T Pro or OnePlus 9 Pro. As of now, the company has released no official information on the matter.
