OnePlus is expected to launch a more affordable smartphone under its new Nord line, and now a recent certification has revealed a key spec of the upcoming phone.
TÜV Rheinland has certified a OnePlus charger that supports 5V 2A (10W) and 9V 2A (18W ). OnePlus doesn’t have any phone that supports 18W fast charge; even the OnePlus Nord supports 5V 6A (30W, Warp Charge 30T). It is safe to presume that this new charger is for an even more affordable phone since it supports 18W and not even the faster but retired OnePlus’ 20W (5V 4A) fast charging.
The charger was certified last week on August 13 and it is the first OnePlus charger that uses a voltage higher than 5V.
There are reports of a OnePlus phone powered by the Snapdragon 690 5G processor which is yet to appear in any phone. There is a chance that the new 18W charger will be bundled with this device.
Earlier this month, a OnePlus phone (or two) with the codename “Billie” sort of leaked. Billie is actually two phones – one with triple rear cameras and another with dual-rear cameras. We want to believe one is a lite version of the other and the lite version might come with support for 18W fast charging.
Anyways, these are speculations but the existence of this charger means it will be bundled with a more affordable device.
