Next OnePlus flagship may include 65W fast charging, as the company's charger has just been certified. OnePlus' 65W fast charging has been certified from TUV Rheinland.

This charger has a power output of 65W (10V/6.5A), and the model numbers mentioned are VCA7JAH, WC1007A1JH, and S065AG.

Now, the listing itself doesn't reveal a whole lot of information, other than what we've mentioned. It does, however, points to the fact that the company's next flagship will include this charger.

65W fast charging will probably be included in the OnePlus 8T series

Considering that the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro launched just recently, the device to include this charger will probably be the OnePlus 8T. OnePlus may actually announce both the OnePlus 8T and 8T Pro later this year.

The OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro actually include 30W wired charging, while the OnePlus 8 Pro also includes 30W wireless charging. Just to be clear, the charger that got announced is a wired charger.

In any case, the OnePlus 8 series includes the same charging speed as their predecessors. Some people expected OnePlus to include even faster charging in those two phones, but the company did not.

Not that it is necessary, as Warp Charge 30T is plenty fast, but it seems like OnePlus is looking to up the ante a bit. We've already seen some OPPO phones with 65W fast charging, and OPPO is OnePlus' sister company.

Now, we're guessing that this 65W charging will be included in the OnePlus 8T series. That may not be the case, though. OnePlus may wait until the OnePlus 9 comes knocking next year in order to include that feature.

The OnePlus 8T is expected to arrive at the end of 2020

We can only guess at this point, of course, as the launch of the next OnePlus flagship is not that close. The OnePlus 8T series is expected to arrive at the end of the year. The OnePlus 9 will probably launch in mid-2021.

OnePlus is planning to announce one phone before that, though, the OnePlus Z. That phone is also known as the OnePlus 8 Lite, even though the OnePlus Z will probably be its name.

That handset will become a spiritual successor to the OnePlus X, it will be a mid-range smartphone. The device will be fueled by the Snapdragon 765, and chances are it will ship with 30W charging, not 65W one.

Such a new feature, like 65W charging, OnePlus will almost certainly save for its flagship lineup. The OnePlus Z is looking to become a rather popular handset, as it seems like many people are interested in it. Its price tag will play a huge part in its sales, though.
