OnePlus has been under fire for skipping the IP water and dust-proof certificate on its flagship phones for years and the company finally introduced its first phone with an official IP rating this year – the OnePlus 8 Pro. However, the vanilla OnePlus 8 skipped that (except for those US carrier units) and according to the latest rumor, the smartphone maker is about to do the same with the OnePlus 9 family.
According to a tipster, who has an excellent track record when it comes to OnePlus-related leaks, only the Pro version will be boasting IP68 certification against water and dust. The OnePlus 9 and 9E will skip it. And yes, you’ve read that right – OnePlus 9E is supposedly joining the duo but we got no details on its specs.
Additionally, here are an alleged OnePlus 9 schematics showing off the rough design, which seems to be in line with what we’ve seen so far. Two of the cameras on the back are indeed missing but these are schematics, after all, they are not supposed to be detailed. The two large sensors are confirmed, along with the button placement and the notification slider.
