Best answer: The OnePlus 6T does not support wireless charging, but with a large 3,700 mAh battery and extremely fast Fast Charge system, it's really not that big of a deal.

The OnePlus 6T doesn't support any type of wireless charging

Unlike most phones that were released this year, the OnePlus 6T does not support any kind of wireless charging.

OnePlus has previously hinted that it'll add wirelsss charging to its phones in the future, but the company's implementation of the feature isn't ready for the public quite yet.

However, it's wired charging speeds are excellent

Even though you're missing out on the convenience of wireless charging, we don't think you'll miss it too much once you experience OnePlus's Fast Charge system.

Previously referred to as Dash Charge, Fast Charge delivers a full day's worth of use after being plugged in for just half an hour. It's easily one of the fastest charging systems available right now, and once you use it, you'll never want to go back to anything else. What's wireless charging?

Who cares about wireless charging when you get Fast Charge?

Speaking of charging, that's not something you should have to worry about all that often with the OnePlus 6T. The phone's equipped with a 3,700 mAh battery, and in our testing, it proved to be more than capabale for lasting well through a full day even with intensive use.

If you're just using the 6T sporadically throughout the day and not constantly looking at the screen, there's a good chance you could even eek out around two days of use on one charge.

Seriously, it's that good.

Don't sweat too much over this one omission

Although it would have been nice to have wireless charging on the OnePlus 6T, the lack of it on the phone certainly isn't enough to not consider buying it. Thanks to the huge battery and excellent wired charging speeds, the missing wireless capabilities will soon become an afterthought.
