Dash Charge – fast charging technology from OnePlus. For the first time it appeared on the “troika” of the Chinese manufacturer and promised to replenish 60 percent of the battery charge for half an hour. Now the company will probably have to change its name. The whole trouble with the trademark problem.
The changes were noticed by readers, reports Android Police. To begin with, the company did not pronounce the phrase “Dash Charge” on the presentation of OnePlus 6. Also now, all references to the brand in the company's official online store have been replaced with “Quick Charging.”
To make this manufacturer forced competition. OnePlus has applied for the Dash Charge trademark in 2016 during the release of the new flagship. In America there were no problems with registration, but the European Union refused. It happened recently – in March of this year.
Amazon and Bragi also claim the trademark in Europe. The latter produces wireless audio devices. The trade giant wants to use the word in “Dash Replenishment” – an API designed to automatically order goods from Amazon.
It seems that OnePlus will pick up a new name for the technology. Its official announcement will certainly take place at the announcement of the next flagship. Discuss OnePlus 6 can be in the official telegram channel AndroidInsider.
