OnePlus 7/7 Pro teased with improved water resistance but no IP rating
In a short 30-second video, OnePlus explains that “water resistant ratings for phones cost you money,” something it isn’t a fan of. Because of this, the company jokingly says it purchased “something less expensive" – a bucket – with the goal of demonstrating the higher level of water resistance that the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro will support.
During the video, OnePlus clearly throws a OnePlus 7 Pro unit into a bucket full of water. Nevertheless, it goes on to warn that its customers shouldn't do this. Moreover, just like the brands that do choose to IP certify their devices, OnePlus has confirmed that its warranty won't cover water damage on the OnePlus 7 or OnePlus 7 Pro.
