According to the blog post, the highly effective charge pump ensures a charge efficiency of 97 per cent and minimises the amount of energy converted into heat. Designed with similar functionalities to that of a kill switch, the isolated charge pump deactivates charging when abnormal currents and voltages are detected. This function helps to maintain a stable charge and keeps phone safe while powering up.
To improve charging efficiency and maintain a high-power charge for a longer period, the company utilised Warp wireless direct charging architecture, which enables real time communication between the wireless charger and the phone through a customised chip. The chip assists in controlling the charger’s current and voltage to maximize overall efficiency.
While the company did not share details on whether its fast-wireless charger will be compatible with other smartphones, it did mention that the OnePlus 8-series smartphones
will be compatible with Qi wireless charging protocols. Therefore, the upcoming smartphones
will be compatible with most wireless chargers available in the market today.
Recently, the company also shared details on key specifications of the OnePlus 8-series smartphones. The OnePlus 8-series will support 5G
connectivity. It will boast a display of an enhanced refresh rate of 120Hz. The display on OnePlus 8-series has already been rated A+ by an independent rating agency DisplayMate. Powering the phone will be Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 system-on-chip, mated with latest LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.0 storage.
