OnePlus has introduced a new feature for travellers in India. This new feature will notify you of nearby OnePlus charging stations at the airport. You can also track the station and the distance to the closest ones. The charging stations have beacons which help your OnePlus phone identify charging stations nearby. The new feature is part of OxygenOS and the charging stations are available at Bengaluru airport, and will soon be launched at Delhi airport.
The moment you enter the airport, nearby Charging Stations service on your phone will notify you when you are near a OnePlus Charging Station along with tracking how far it is from you and where the closest station is to you.
“The service runs with the help of beacons integrated in the charging stations that allows OnePlus devices to identify a nearby charging station and generate a notification. You can mute this service for 6 hours if you find yourself in long halts at the airports,” said OnePlus in a blog post.
OnePlus hasn’t mentioned the charging speeds at these stations. But this shouldn’t be a problem as OnePlus phones are known to get charged up quickly. The new OnePlus 8T 5G charges from 0-100 in just about 40 minutes, thanks to the 65W Warp charging tech. According to OnePlus, the OnePlus 8T takes 10 minutes to charge 40%, 15 minutes to charge 58% and 100% battery gets charged in 39 minutes only.
