OnePlus 7 Pro will have water resistance unlike any other IP rating smartphone

OnePlus will be launching its new OnePlus 7 series smartphones on 14th May that will include the OnePlus 7 Pro and OnePlus 7. Both the phones have made it through several leaks that include the phone specs and design, but now a new report suggests a new feature on the phone that shows the phone being dropped in the bucket filled with water.

OnePlus teased a video on Twitter showing the water resistance capabilities of the upcoming phones, but the water resistance won't be an IP rating that is seen on other flagship smartphones.

The video teaser on the twitter account reads 'Water resistant ratings for phones cost you money.', followed with 'We bought something less expensive instead.', which means it will have a good water resistance of sorts, but won't be like the ones you get in other expensive flagships smartphones.

Given the rumoured price of the OnePlus 7 pro, which has been leaked by tipster Ishan Aggarwal, the OnePlus 7 pro price is expected to start at around Rs 49,999 that hints to the Samsung Galaxy S10e and Apple iPhone XR category, which actually come with IP ratings. The Samsung Galaxy S10e comes with IP68 dust/waterproof rating while the Apple iPhone XR comes with IP67 dust/water resistance. It will be interesting to see what OnePlus has up its sleeves for water resistance technology in its upcoming OnePlus 7 series smartphones.

Last years, OnePlus 6 series had water resistance too, but wasn't IP certified that helped the phone stand against light rain and splash. This time the OnePlus 7 Pro is said to feature a pop-up camera, so it will be interesting to see the water-resistance capability of the upcoming smartphone.
