While wireless charging has not taken on at full speed in India, there is no denying the fact the convenience it offers. Rather than attaching a traditional cable to juice up your device, you can just prop it on a charging pad and watch as your device magically charges. Obviously, this method is slower than what traditional wired charging solution offers but quite a few companies are trying to amp up wireless charging speeds. Then there is the fact that most of the phones do not support wireless charging and in the case of India, only a select few of the premium devices have it. Here we list down 5 smartphones you can buy which have wireless charging that you can buy right now.

Now the company has finally caved into the pressure and included the feature on its flagship OnePlus 8 Pro.

It does, however, have support for fast 30W wireless charging but only if you use the proprietary Warp Charge 30 Wireless Charger. You can head to our previous coverage on the same.
