  • OnePlus may launch a new powerbank this year.
  • The OnePlus powerbank may support up to 50W fast charging system.
  • OnePlus could launch it along with the OnePlus 8 series later in the year.

OnePlus is one of the most sought-after tech brands in India and every product it launches tags along huge fan following. Its phones are highly popular but the recently launched OnePlus TV also came up as a popular choice in the smart TV segment. OnePlus also makes a couple of accessories but the one segment where OnePlus is not present is the powerbank. OnePlus used to make one long time ago but in the recent years, you do not have the option to buy a OnePlus powerbank. It seems that someone in OnePlus was concerned about this.

OnePlus usually keeps dropping hints of upcoming products via tweets or posts in its community and recently, the company's CEO Pete Lau posted a new tweet speaking about a powerbank. "RT if you'd like a fast charging power bank," read Lau's tweet. While nothing else followed the tweet, it seems that Lau subtly teased a new powerbank from OnePlus that may launch in a few weeks' time.

Doing a powerbank is the latest trend among smartphone makers. Redmi recently unveiled its new range of powerbanks while Realme entered the segment last year with its own powerbanks. Samsung also makes a couple of powerbanks with various features. Hence, it only makes sense for OnePlus to jump in on the bandwagon and come up with its own powerbanks.

While there's no information on the powerbank, several rumours suggest that the OnePlus powerbank may support fast charging. The powerbank could come with the 30W Warp Charge 30T, which could make it recharge phones like the OnePlus 7T and OnePlus 7T Pro faster than usual. The device could also support 20W Fast Charge for older devices. Chances are that OnePlus may also offer up to 50W fast charging that may also debut on the OnePlus 8 Pro later this year.

OnePlus could launch this powerbank along with the OnePlus 8 series probably by end of March or early April. The OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro are rumoured to make it to the Indian shores soon and OnePlus is expected to offer some massive upgrades. The OnePlus 8 Pro is expected to support 50W fast wired charging while rumours also suggest support for fast wireless charging system.
