Recently, OnePlus has rolled out the new “Charging Stations” feature in India. This feature in OxygenOS will notify the users of the nearby OnePlus charging stations at the airports of India. Apart from notification, it also provides a tracking option to track the station and find out the distance of the closest one.
How it works:
Nearby Charging Stations service, on your phone will inform you when you are around an OnePlus Charging Station along with a tracking option to track how far it is from you and which is the closest station to you.
The service runs with the help of beacons integrated into the charging stations that allow OnePlus devices to identify a nearby charging station and generate a notification/information. You can mute this service for 6 hours if you find yourself in long stops at the airports.
The charging stations are available at Bangalore airport currently, and will soon be rolling out at Delhi airport in India. There is no clear information regarding the charging speed. However, it is likely to support up to 65W warp charging for OnePlus 8T.
OnePlus also announced the Education Benefits Program in India, offering exclusive discounts to higher education students and teachers a couple of days back. As a part of the program, teachers and students can avail of a Rs. 1000 discount on all OnePlus smartphones and 5% off on all accessories including cases, audio, and protection.
