OnePlus 6 torn down to examine its water safety #Toronto #Montreal #Calgary #Ottawa #Canada
The OnePlus 6 has been torn down, burnt, bent and scratched, however its water-proof is but to be examined. OnePlus by no means talked about an IP-rating, so JerryRigEverything got down to discover out.
Spoilers: all openings seem like sealed. The massive holes (USB, headphone jack, buttons) have rubber rings round them, although the one on the cardboard tray appears a bit small. The sound-related holes (mics, speaker grilles) have meshes to maintain the water out.
So, the cellphone is certainly spill-resistant, however its not clear the way it will deal with water underneath stress both from submersion or water jets.
