OnePlus is a company that seeks to give its users impeccable value for their smartphone-buying dollar, and while that means paying a lot less for your handset than you might with a bigger-name OEM, it can also mean making a few sacrifices along the way. With last year’s OnePlus 2, users did without a number of features that we might expect to see on a more full-featured flagship, especially in the power department: not only did the phone lack a wireless charging option (forgivable), but there was no quick-charge mode to be found (a much harder pill to swallow). Can we expect OnePlus to correct those oversights with the OnePlus 3? Well, with a Snapdragon 820 on board (as is looking likely), we’d hope to see Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 support, but now a new trademark filing has us wondering if OnePlus might have something slightly different up its sleeve.

dash-chargeEarlier this month, OnePlus filed for trademark protection for something called Dash Charge, with the logo you see here.

The company describes Dash Charge in that filing as a technology generally related to mobile electronics, but we hardly get anything in the way of detail.

Could Dash Charge be some in-house branding for a speedy charging solution? Why come up with some new branding instead of using something more established? All we can do at the moment is speculate, but we’ll be keeping an eye out for further mention of Dash Charge as we approach the OnePlus 3’s late-Q2 launch.
