OnePlus has excluded wireless charging from its devices since the company’s advent in 2014. Well, it looks like that might finally change this time around with the OnePlus 8 Pro.
A recent tweet by tipster Max J. suggests OnePlus’ upcoming “Pro” variant will include this much-desired feature. Though the tweet doesn’t explicitly say anything about wireless charging coming to OnePlus devices, the graphic and wording make the reference clear.

In a follow-up tweet, Max admits this graphic is just “a concept for illustration purpose only,” so we don’t actually get a look at this supposed functionality in action. We’ve previously heard rumors OnePlus would bring wireless charging to its upcoming devices, but it’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about it.
Unfortunately, there is no information on whether wireless charging might come to other OnePlus 8 devices or if it is a Pro-variant exclusive feature. Either way, we are stoked to hear OnePlus could possibly implement this feature at all.
Remember, this is not official information, so take it with a grain of salt. We can’t know for certain if OnePlus will introduce wireless charging with the 8 series or not until the company releases more information.
