The OnePlus 8 Pro Promise IP68 Certified Water and Dust Resistance
At present, few mainstream flagship phones can support IP68-level waterproof and dustproof. Such as the Xiaomi Mi 10 series, the HUAWEI P40 series, and the upcoming MEIZU 17 series, they do not support IP68 waterproof. OnePlus has always unofficially offered some resistance in its phones but has never actually certified their devices with an official rating. Thankfully these changes with the Oneplus 8 family Pro!
For most regions, the OnePlus 8 will remain without official resistance, but carrier models in the states will reportedly offer it. That said, the OnePlus 8 Pro finally offers IP68 certified water and dust resistance in all markets. (OnePlus 8 do not offer IP68 certified water and dust resistance)
The OnePlus 8 Pro’s IP68 rating means its dust-tight and can survive in water up to one meter (about 3 feet) without issue for prolonged periods. Typically that means a time period of around 30 minutes. The longer you keep the phone in the later, the more likely it will start to take on water damage.
Can I Take the OnePlus 8 Pro for a Swim?
Although OnePlus 8 Pro supports IP68 waterproofing, swimming with it is still not recommended. Because there are a lot of trace elements in the pool or in the sea, they can cause unpredictable damage to your OnePlus 8 Pro phone. Moreover, soaking in water for a long time is harmful to OnePlus 8 Pro.
Of course, if you want to use the OnePlus 8 Pro to immerse in water to take photos, this behavior is acceptable. But it's safer to put your OnePlus 8 Pro in a waterproof bag.
