Following the launch of the OnePlus 6, OnePlus has refrained from using the phrase “Dash Charge” to refer to its fast charging technology or any of its charging accessories. The reason for that is due to a trademark issue in the US and EU. A new trademark filing has revealed what may be the new name for its fast charging technology.
According to a trademark filing in Europe, the new name for OnePlus’ fast charge technology may be “Warp Charge”. The application was filed on Friday, the 13th of July and includes the new logo for the charging technology. It is also said to fall under class 9 of trademark classifications. Items under this class include most of the electronics in use today.
In OnePlus’s application, the trademark will be used for data cables, power adapters, cell phone battery chargers, electrical adapters, chargers for electric batteries and wireless chargers.
You may be wondering why “wireless chargers” is on the list since OnePlus doesn’t have any phone that supports wireless charging neither does it make wireless chargers. Since it is a trademark application, it can as well cover future products.
The filing hasn’t been approved yet. Once done, we expect OnePlus to make an announcement and rebrand its charging technology and related accessories.
What do you think of Warp Charge? Does it roll off the tongue like Dash Charge?
