OnePlus 6 Will Be Water Resistant
The OnePlus 6 is turning out to be quite an upgrade over its predecessor, the OnePlus 5T. Ever since the company first teased the OnePlus 6, the company has slowly hinted at a few important features of the upcoming flagship smartphone. In the latest tweet by OnePlus’ official account, the company has seemingly confirmed that the OnePlus 6 will be water resistant.

At the time of the launch of the OnePlus 5, the company was heavily panned for significantly increasing the price of the smartphone from its predecessor. Also, OnePlus did that without introducing important features like an IP rating for water resistance. That trend continued with the OnePlus 5T, however, it appears that OnePlus has finally listened to its consumers with the new smartphone. Whether the OnePlus 6 will have an IP67 or IP68 rating for water and dust resistance will only be confirmed at the launch event.
The OnePlus 6 has also been confirmed to be an Amazon exclusive smartphone in India, like its predecessors. In an advertisement being shown at Cinemas in India, the last slide reveals that the 6 will be an Amazon-exclusive smartphone, just like its predecessors. However, like it did with the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T, the OnePlus 6 will also, eventually, make its way to offline stores as OnePlus is now trying to capture a market that strays away from shopping online.
There are also rumours the OnePlus 6 will have an all-glass design which means the company could also introduce wireless charging. This is another feature that a lot of consumers have asked for but, so far, OnePlus has maintained that its DashCharge technology is superior to the current wireless charging technology.
So far, there has been no hint by the company regarding the official launch date of the 6. If rumours of a Special Edition Avengers OnePlus 6 are true, then the smartphone will launch before the 27th of April (global release date of Avengers: Infinity War).
