Yes and no! The OnePlus 6 is water-resistant but does not have wireless charging. Also, if you expected the phone to have a fully waterproof body, you would be wrong. The phone has an IP68 Water and Dust resistant rating just like all the other flagship smartphones.
OnePlus 6 is the first OnePlus phone to come with some sort of water resistance. It’s also the first phone to come with wireless charging. Not only that, the company has put on the right features at the right time. With the launch of the iPhone X, everyone is talking about wireless charging and many furnitures and even cars come with wireless charging pads built0in. OnePlus couldn’t put on a wireless charging coil at a better time.
OnePlus 6 Qi Wireless Charging
The OnePlus 6 uses Qi standard wireless charging which means that it is compatible with most of the wireless chargers/ wireless pads out there. It’s the same standard used by LG, Samsung, HTC and Apple. So. that’s again another good news for the OnePlus followers who are looking to buy a new OnePlus phone, specifically the OnePlus 6.
Update: The OnePlus 6 is official and turns out the phone doesn’t get any form of wireless charging. All the rumours indicating the phone to come with Qi Wireless Charging turns out to be false. Many rumours suggested it to be a real deal because OnePlus decided to go with glass back instead of metal ones, unlike its predecessor.
OnePlus 6 IP68 Water Resistance
The OnePlus 6 is the first phone to feature IP68. It means that the phone is fully dustproof and can be submerged in water with a depth of 1.5 meters for up to 30 minutes. However, keep in mind- even though this phone is water resistant, it’s best not kept in water. The rating is for clear water and not salty or sea water. So, a lot of salt in the water can evidently kill the phone.
OnePlus 6 Overview
The OnePlus 6 comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC and 6GB/8GB of RAM. The phone also has an improved image sensor and image processor.
The design is also a radical improvement over its predecessor. From the front, the phone will remind you of the OnePlus X and that’s no surprise. We had numerous leaks about the OnePlus 6 and were not surprised to see the phone in flesh. All the rumours were indeed true.
The highlight of the phone undoubtedly its design and processing prowess. To be honest, it does look premium although it looks a lot like the iPhone X. The camera is another talking point of the phone. The photos out of the OnePlus 6 is very much comparable to that of the iPhone X, Samsung Galaxy S9 and the LG G7 ThinQ.
