OnePlus 8 Pro Could Come With IP68 Rating

OnePlus 8 Pro IP68 OnePlus 8 Pro Could Come With IP68 Rating

The OnePlus 7 Pro and OnePlus 7 debuted May 14, 2019, so we can (hopefully) expect a similar date for the OnePlus 8 line.

But before we get to that, another leak has hinted at something that might be even more exciting - water resistance. Now, a new teaser leaked online suggests that the upcoming OnePlus 8 Pro could be water-resistant.

OnePlus devices aren't known for their IP rating, because of course, they don't have any. Rumoured to be backed by a 4500mAh battery, the OnePlus 8 Pro is said to offer Super Warp fast charging. Whichever the case may be, the move will undoubtedly be met by praise from loyal fans. Under this series, the Chinese smartphone maker is likely to bring three smartphones namely OnePlus 8, OnePlus 8 Lite and OnePlus 8 Pro. Now it looks set to be made formal with Max J. suggesting that the OnePlus 8 will have an IP68 dust/water resistance rating - the equivalent of other ultra-premium flagships available on the market. The recent iPhone and Samsung Galaxy S-series flagships have features IP68 ratings. In terms of specs, the handset is said to offer a 6.4-inch AMOLED display with 90Hz refresh rate. But unlike their predecessors, which supported smooth 90Hz refresh rates, OnePlus is reportedly going to fit both phones with its recently announced 120Hz panels. It'll also come with a 32MP selfie camera and a TOF camera on the front. This allows for one selfie camera and minimal bezels around the curved-edge screens. On the camera front, the OnePlus 8 is listed to house a triple camera setup with 48MP+16MP+2MP sensors.

What are your thoughts on the OnePlus 8 Pro, OnePlus 8, and OnePlus 8 Lite?

OnePlus 8 Pro IP68 certification

The OnePlus 8 will have a slightly larger 6.55-inch display, be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 5G SoC with Adreno 640 GPU. Though this may not apply to the standard and Lite models of the phone.

The latter could lead to a rather noticeable price hike for this year's phone, but OnePlus is fortunately working on the cheaper OnePlus 8 Lite for those of you that aren't necessarily looking to purchase a 5G flagship just yet.

OnePlus have always been a company offering great value for money. The phone also comes with 8GB of RAM, 128GB of solid state storage (with a 256GB option), a hefty 4,000mAh battery, 30W fast (ish) USB-C charging, and Android 10 for $499.

The OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro are now expected to go official at some point in April.
