OnePlus 7 can survive a bucket of water: Will not feature IP rating


IP rating is expensive

According to OnePlus getting IP rating for a smartphone will cost more money, even if the smartphone is designed to be water and dust resistant. For the very same reason, OnePlus will not get IP certification for their smartphone. Nevertheless, none of the smartphone brands, even with IP rating will cover water-damaged smartphones under warranty.

In the teaser, an upcoming OnePlus smartphone has been dunked inside a bucket of water, and the device is most likely to survive the water-impact. Do note that, smartphones like the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T also comes with rubber gaskets inside the phone, which inhibits the water-damage.

The latest teaser from OnePlus re-affirms that, the OnePlus 7 and the OnePlus 7 Pro will be water and dust resistant, but the device will not offer any sort of IP rating certification like IP67 and IP68 for water and dust resistance.
