OnePlus 9 Pro News: Interesting statements came today about OnePlus’ flagship model, the OnePlus 9 Pro. The phone may be waterproof. Here are the details.
Chinese OnePlus came up with the phone OnePlus 9 Pro, which uses the IP68 waterproof certificate this year. However, confusing statements came today about the waterproof feature of this phone. OnePlus CEO Pete Lau said on Weibo that the company and he prefer not to talk about the water resistance of the new flagship.
OnePlus 9 Pro is waterproof! But…
Last year, the OnePlus 8 Pro became the first smartphone from the company to officially meet the IP68 rating. Although this feature is also included in the OnePlus 9 Pro, the company does not advertise to focus on this feature of the phone. He doesn’t even prefer to talk about it.
Pete Lau on the subject; “Waterproof is one of the advantages of a smartphone that we have implemented well but don’t want to talk about. The reason is simple. IP68 is evaluated in a laboratory environment and follows a standardized process. However, the actual environment and usage conditions are very different from the laboratory environment.” used the phrases.
According to OnePlus CEO, while the phone’s compatibility with the degree of protection is just one of the functions that should work in ideal conditions, there is no point in wasting time and resources discussing this issue.
It should be noted that last year Apple was fined 10 million euros for the iPhone’s “water resistance”. But that didn’t stop the company from continuing to advertise the smartphone’s degree of protection. Maybe Pete Lau doesn’t want to talk about the waterproof feature of his phone to avoid such a case. It should be noted that so far, even a person using the OnePlus 9 Pro and experiencing liquid contact has not been reported.
