The OnePlus 11 is all the rage right now. It is the latest flagship phone from the company that is known to offer some of the best features and specifications in an aggressively-priced phone, taking on the likes of Samsung Galaxy S23, Google Pixel 7, and Xiaomi 13, among others. But there seems to be some confusion around the waterproofing abilities of the OnePlus 11, especially in India. While the US media reported the OnePlus 11 has an IP64 rating, the Indian media did not have any clue about the version that will be sold in India.
GSMArena has now reported that OnePlus has given a confirmation about the IP rating of the OnePlus 11. The OnePlus 11 is indeed IP64 rated for dust and splash resistance. The 6 in IP64 means the OnePlus 11 is “dust tight”, which means it is completely protected against dust particle ingress, whereas the number 4 means the phone is protected against splashing water. This means that the OnePlus 11 is not entirely waterproof and cannot be dunked into the water — unlike some other high-end phones. So, to answer the question in the headline, the OnePlus 11 is not waterproof. But it can endure water splashes.
The lack of an IP68 or IP69 rating on the OnePlus 11 could be a deal-breaker considering some less expensive phones offer better water resistance. And if you are planning to buy the OnePlus 11, make sure you do not use it anywhere near a swimming pool or an area where there are chances the phone would get immersed in water. Using the phone in rain or light showers, however, may not be a problem.
The OnePlus 11 comes in two variants. The one with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage costs Rs 56,999, while the higher variant with 16GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage will be available at Rs 61,999. The OnePlus 11 is available in Eternal Green and Titan Black colourways. The pre-orders are now live and will run till February 13. The smartphone will be available for purchase starting February 14, at 12 pm across OnePlus.in, OnePlus Store App, OnePlus Experience Stores across India, and Amazon.in.Get latest Tech and Auto news from Techlusive on our WhatsApp Channel, Facebook, X (Twitter), Instagram and YouTube.
