OnePlus teases 65W Warp Charge for the OnePlus 8T

OnePlus confirmed earlier this week that it will be launching the OnePlus 8T on October 14. In typical OnePlus fashion, ahead of the phone's launch, it is teasing the various features of the device. In a teaser video posted on Twitter, OnePlus is teasing the 65W fast charging speed of the OnePlus 8T.

The teaser starts actually starts with Dash Charge, which is what OnePlus referred to its fast charging tech before renaming it to Warp Charge. The video ends with the tag line, "We don't slow down", thereby hinting at even faster charging speeds that the comapny plans to debut with the OnePlus 8T next month. There's another teaser on the company's website -- which is only viewable on mobile -- that shows two battery cells and Warp Charge charging the device speedily.

OnePlus will likely be using OPPO's 65W VOOC charging to offer 65W Warp Charge on the OnePlus 8T. To achieve charging speeds as high as 65W, OPPO uses two battery cells on its devices and charges them simultaneously instead of using one large battery cell. The side effect of this approach is that the battery capacity ends up being slightly smaller than usual.

There are quite a few other phones that offer 65W fast charging support and they are all able to charge from 0-100% in just over 30 minutes. While the battery capacity of the OnePlus 8T is not yet known, it is likely that the device will also charge from 0-100% in a similar timeframe.
