A 6 years long-awaited feature finally came into the consideration of OnePlus. AllAboutSamsung editor & Graphics Desiginer Max J announced on Twitter that OnePlus 8 may be the first smartphone of the Chinese smartphone brand that is provided with an IP rating for OnePlus 8 series. It’s one of the biggest leaps and you can say a milestone by OnePlus to protect their smartphones from the water after 6 years of a long journey. The high refresh rate smartphone was the first company introduced in Oneplus 7 pro.

If we can believe the rumours, the OnePlus 8 Pro, the company’s upcoming top device, will receive an IP68 rating to demonstrate water resistance. In recent years, the company announced that its smartphones are indeed watertight, but that the IP rating alone was missing. It would cost the consumer unnecessary high costs. If the rumours are true, then the company returns to that decision.
