OnePlus 6 Will be Water Resistant, Confirm an Official Video Just before Its Launch


OnePlus is currently leaving no stone unturned before the launch of its upcoming flagship OnePlus 6. Expected to be launched in the next few days, Oneplus is yet to share the exact date, however,  we can anticipate the day to be sometime around the end of April or May first week.

In the build-up to the launch, Oneplus rolling out the glimpse of the Oneplus 6 for some time now.  In the last month, it confirmed that one of the OnePlus 6 will be a fast phone--suggesting at the current Qualcomm's fastest processor, the Snapdragon 845 SoC. Just a few weeks away from the launch, in another official teaser of the OnePlus 6, the company has confirmed that the device will be water resistant.


The company released a 3-second video on its official Twitter handle, to unveil that its flagship device, also known as the one plus 6 will be a water-resistant phone. Though, the video clip did not give out any additional details about the phone.  The video shows water droplets striking the surface, indicating that the OnePlus 6 will be water resistant.  And the clip ends. This is contrasting the previous teaser, which doesn't show the phone at all.                                                                                                                                                                                             
Last year launched, OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T, were also water and dust resistant phones to an extent. But, the company never officially confirmed and promoted these features.  Since the company has confirmed the water resistant certification for the OnePlus 6, it can be said that this is the first-ever smartphone by OnePlus that actually provide protection against water.

The OnePlus teaser caption says "Don't you just hate it when you have to stop using your phone when it rains? So do we." Despite no additional details from the company about the IP certification for the device yet, we can anticipate OnePlus 6 to have IP67 certification,  that means that the phone will be able to withstand water immersion.  So you can drop your OnePlus 6 in water, and IP67 certification will make sure that the device is not damaged.  IP67 certification will also make roads for the upcoming OnePlus 6 to be dust resistant.



With IP67 certification a phone can successfully accomplish withstanding immersion in water up to one meter for a maximum time of 30 minutes. The conclusion is as per tests conducted in laboratory conditions.

By building OnePlus 6 water resistant, it seems that the company is aiming to compete with Apple's anniversary edition phone--iPhone X. Also, it's worth a mention that the iPhone 8+ is IP67 rated.  Further, the upcoming flagship smartphone with triple cameras the Huawei P20 Pro from Huawei is also certified with IP67 water and dust resistance. In contrast, Samsung went one step ahead to opt for IP68 certification with its newly launched Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. The same can be expected in the upcoming Galaxy Note 9 as well.

Amid all the happening, Pete Lau, OnePlus CEO, posted a few camera samples on the Chinese micro-blogging site--Weibo, which he apparently clicked with the OnePlus 6. The camera samples don’t disclose technical information about the OnePlus 6 camera, but we can surely gauge (from the above image samples) that the device, for sure, can capture pretty clear images in bright daylight scenario. All pictures have been shot in daylight, one of the seven sample images show a portrait-mode click of the tulips.
