Is the OnePlus 8 (Pro) waterproof?

So that you can have fun with your new cell phone for as long as possible, you should protect it from dust, dirt and moisture. The protection of cell phones is given by the IP protection class. We'll tell you how waterproof the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro are.

Current smartphones are usually certified with an IP code. This is made up of two digits. The first number indicates the protection against dust, the second the protection against water.

OnePlus 8 and One Plus 8 Pro: Waterproof with IP68 certification

Both the OnePlus 8 and the OnePlus 8 Pro are certified with protection class IP68.

  • 6 is the highest value for protection against contact and foreign bodies. The OnePlus 8 is therefore dustproof.
  • 8 is also the highest value for smartphones. Both the OnePlus 8 and the OnePlus 8 Pro are protected against permanent immersion.

But what does it exactly mean? You don't have to worry if you use your OnePlus phone with sweaty hands after exercising or during a rain shower. However, you shouldn't use the expensive device for the next photo session in the sea. The value IP68 indicates that the mobile phone can withstand a water depth of 1.5 meters for up to 30 minutes.

That's how waterproof the new OnePlus phones are

The water resistance refers to fresh water. Salt water quickly attacks the seals on the housing. As a result, cell phones are more susceptible to seawater. In addition, the information relates to a new telephone. Small cracks can appear on the housing after drops and bumps, which impair the water resistance. Other liquids such as drinks can also attack the housing more quickly. Despite the IP rating, you shouldn't submerge your OnePlus 8 (Pro) in the bathtub or hold it in your hand while taking a beer shower.
