QI not working on my OnePlus 9 via OnePlus 9

    Hi,

    I just bought my OnePlus 9 and was excited to try out the QI wireless charging as my 7 Pro did not offer this feature.

    I have now tried 3 different QI chargers and nothing has worked. Is there something I have to activate? I can find the reverse charging switch but nothing for the charging. Everything I have read has basically said the it should turn on automatically once on a charger.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

    Only the 9 of India does not have wireless charging.
    EDIT: Seems like the China model does not have wireless charging either
    Where are you from?

    Seems like this is not the model for Nort America, since it should be LE2115.
    Maybe that is the reason why does not have wireless charging

    Just talked to customer support, I do in fact have a Chinese phone which does not support wireless charging. But I have been told they are working on an update that might allow it.

    When you bought it, did it say at the store it was a gray import? Did it clearly state what version of the phone they sold?
    Payed full price compared to Oneplus official store?

    I assume it is running Oxygen OS. That would mean they opened the device packaging and converted it from Color OS to Oxygen OS and possibly sealed it again.
    The intended version for your region and this imported and converted version may have different possibilities to get 5G on your network(s) (without some extra steps to enable and such)

    If all this was not clear to you when buying I'd check for options to return and get what you actually wanted.

    It does not have a charge coil. Getting wireless charging is impossible. (without external charge coil sticker and such)

    Indeed, OnePlus 9 from India and China doesn't have the wireless charging.

    Your model don't have the hardware for wireless charging.

    Wireless charging via software updates?

    It is because you using the Global ( NA ) version of the Oxygen OS and NA version does support it.
    And the same Oxygen OS is installed in your phone without any modifications, so whatever option is available in NA version will show in your phone, but it won't work as there is no hardware to support that.

    You can try for reverse wireless charging, I doubt if it works.
