Is The OnePlus Open Waterproof?

OnePlus has finally launched its most awaited and anticipated foldable smartphone, the OnePlus Open, in the Global market including India, joining the flagship foldable market with others, including Samsung, Motorola, and Google. However, Samsung holds more grip on the foldable market, with Motorola and Google adding more options to their foldable devices market and going ahead of Samsung’s popularity. One question that might arise the most in every user’s mind about foldable phones is about their durability or whether the device is resistant to water or not. 

Is The OnePlus Open Waterproof?

Most of the companies include an IP or Ingress Protection rating for dust and water in their devices. However, there is nothing as waterproof or dustproof. Meanwhile, the OnePlus Open comes with an IPX4 rating, which means it can easily handle splashes of water. According to OnePlus, its hinge has extra protection. At the hinge, drainage holes have also been added on both sides of the pivot. Water exits wherever it enters, helping to reduce the time and level of exposure to water. 

Nevertheless, it’s highly recommended to limit your OnePlus Open’s exposure to water. It will not survive the submersion of water, the same as the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5, and the water resistance capacity can vanish with normal wear and tear. In fact, with the IPX4 rating, the OnePlus Open is also resistant to solid ingress such as dust, but here, “X” in its IP rating signifies that there is testing conducted for the protection of solid ingress. 

Although not specifically tested for protection against solid or liquid ingress, modern smartphones can handle water splashes and dust to some extent when it comes to protecting the internal components of the device. Still, it’s highly advisable not to take your OnePlus Open to the pool as it can damage your foldable’s hardware and other components.
