Additionally, the OnePlus 6T is confirmed to be water resistant to a certain extent (just like the OnePlus 6) but it’s not going to be IP certified. The company recently said that it wasn’t worth the additional cost of getting an IP rating certificate for the device. Further, even this year, we won’t be getting wireless charging on the device.
