Upcoming Oppo, Vivo and OnePlus phones might feature wireless charging as Oppo joins Wireless Power Consortium

Highlights: Oppo has joined the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) group. The company might introduce wireless charging on its upcoming phones. Oppo’s sister companies OnePlus and Oppo could borrow wireless charging feature for their upcoming handsets. Oppo has some innovative ideas when we talk about smartphones and this is seen in some of the company’s handsets. For example, the Oppo Find X features a motorised camera setup while the Oppo R17 Pro supports Super VOOC charging. However, one feature that has been missing from its devices is wireless charging but this could change soon since the company is now a member of the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) group. The addition of the company’s name to the consortium suggests that the company could be planning on introducing Qi Wireless Charging in its upcoming smartphones.  Additionally, if Oppo moves forward in implementing wireless charging in its offerings, we can expect the same features on Vivo and OnePlus devices. This is because the three phone makers share the same parent company, BBK Electronics and in the past, Oppo and OnePlus phones have shared some design and hardware technologies. The design of the of the OnePlus 6T quite closely resembled the Oppo R17 Pro and we recently came across a new OnePlus 7 leak, which suggested that the upcoming phone might employ a slider mechanism, same as the Oppo Find X.  Most flagship smartphones feature wireless charging but OnePlus has steered clear of it stating that there was no need to add to its devices. When the OnePlus 6 was announced, company’s officials reportedly stated, “We don't really feel the need to add wireless charging. We're not going to add a feature just for the sake of it.” The company has mostly touted its fast charging tech being more than adequate for its smartphones. So, it remains to be seen whether the next OnePlus smartphone will support wireless charging or not and considering that it might have already entered testing or prototyping phase, we may get to see wireless charging on the OnePlus 7T.  Related Read:  OnePlus says there was no need to add wireless charging to the OnePlus 6
