- OnePlus 8 Pro could ship with IP68 water and dust resistance
- The handset will also offer wireless charging feature
- OnePlus 8 Pro could launch alongside the OnePlus 8 by March-end
OnePlus 8 Pro launch is right around the corner and the leaks regarding the device will not stop coming until the last minute. It seems like the OnePlus 8 Pro will take on the Samsung Galaxy S20+ with its specs this year. OnePlus entered the premium flagship territory last year with the OnePlus 7 Pro and the Chinese company saw success in that price range too. However, several fans criticised the lack of some premium features like wireless charging and IP68 water and dust resistance, despite the phone featuring a glass body. This year’s OnePlus 8 Pro will likely offer both the features and it could be a great alternative to the high-end flagship phones. A new tweet by Max.J hints at the presence of IP68 rating on the upcoming OnePlus 8 Pro.
OnePlus 8 Pro Could Offer IP68 Certification
This year’s OnePlus 8 series rumoured to have three smartphones- the standard OnePlus 8, premium OnePlus 8 Pro and the OnePlus 8 Lite. Talking about the OnePlus 8 Pro, it will be a successor to the OnePlus 7T Pro which was a minor upgrade over the OnePlus 7 Pro. The OnePlus 8 Pro will sport the best hardware available in 2020 like Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset, LPDDR5 RAM, UFS 3.1 storage, 64MP Sony IMX686 sensor, 50W fast charging and so on.
Now coming to the two major features, the OnePlus 8 Pro will ship with wireless charging and IP68 water & dust resistance certification. OnePlus stayed away from both the features for three years now to keep the costs on the lower side. But with increased competition in the market, OnePlus is forced to include both the features on its upcoming premium smartphone. This news comes from Max J. (@MaxJmb) who has a good track record when it comes to OnePlus smartphone leaks. He was the same leaker who tipped about the wireless charging presence on the OnePlus 8 Pro.
