Latest teaser from OnePlus hints at OnePlus 6 being water resistant

The OnePlus 6 will be the first OnePlus smartphone to come with water resistance

The last teaser that OnePlus shared hinted at a repositioned alert slider on the OnePlus 6. Now, the latest teaser that has been shared by OnePlus hints at a feature that has been asked for by many. Yes, it’s the water resistance.

Recent OnePlus flagships like the OnePlus 3, 3T, 5 and 5T all came with a very powerful hardware, but, they lacked what other flagships had – wireless charging and water resistance. Well, if the latest OnePlus teaser is anything to go by, then you won’t have to worry about spills and splashes on the upcoming OnePlus smartphone.

OnePlus has shared a teaser video on Twitter by tweetingDon’t you just hate it when you have to stop using your phone when it rains? So do we 1f609  “. The video also shows some drops of water falling on the floor. Well, this all hints at the OnePlus 6 being water resistant.

If the OnePlus 6 indeed comes with water resistance, it will be the first OnePlus smartphone to have this feature. Having said that, it remains to be seen what IP certification will the OnePlus 6 come with. But, considering the fact that we are talking about a flagship here, and going by the pricing details that have been making rounds on the Internet lately, we expect it to come with at least IPx5 rating (higher rating is always welcomed though).

The OnePlus 6 is expected to launch on May 5, hence, we are pretty sure that OnePlus will keep on revealing more such features of the OnePlus 6 by sharing teaser videos and images on social media.
