Last month, OnePlus announced the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro smartphones. The Pro model came with some major improvements like 120Hz display, IP68 certified chassis and wireless charging support. Judging from the previous release patterns, the Chinese firm is expected to announce the OnePlus 8T series in the second half of the year with more enhanced features. As of now, OnePlus 8T is a tentative moniker for the company’s next flagship phone. Fresh information suggests that the OnePlus 8T phones may arrive with support for 65W fast charging.
OnePlus belongs to China’s BBK Electronics company which also includes other smartphone brands like OPPO and Realme. The latter two are already selling flagship phones with support for 65W charging in different markets. OnePlus too may join the bandwagon as its 65W fast charger has received approved from the TUV Rheinland certification platform.
The charger has model numbers such as VCA7JAH, WC10007A1JH and S065AG. It supports a maximum charging out of 10VDC and 6.5A Max. Realme and OPPO phones with support for 65W fast charging have dual-part batteries. Hence, it is likely that forthcoming OnePlus smartphone with 65W fast charging may also arrive with a dual-part battery.

The OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro smartphones come with support for 30W wired charging. The speed is comparatively slower than 50W charger that comes with Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro and 40W charger available with Huawei P40 series and Honor 30 series. In a bid to offer better charging experience than competitor brands, OnePlus may offer 65W fast charging on its next flagship phones arriving later this year.
In related news, OnePlus is expected to announce the OnePlus Z mid-range device in July. The smartphone could be fueled by Snapdragon 765G mobile platform. The other rumored features of the smartphone include 90Hz refresh rate supporting punch-hole display and triple rear cameras.
