Best answer: Yes, OnePlus 8 Pro is Waterproof. It comes with an IP68 rating that means it can be submerged into the maximum depth of 1.5m underwater for up to thirty minutes.
OnePlus 8 Pro is the first phone from OnePlus to have an IP rating. OnePlus have said in the past that their Smartphones are Water-resistant from the days of OnePlus 6T, however, they never went for the IP certification to save the cost so pricing can be reasonable and follow that “Flagship killer” moniker. But this time, with a premium price, they also included premium features.
It is a premium smartphone, at a price of $899, it should be equipped with all the best specs out there. OnePlus have always been a winner in Specification, and it is the same this time, you get everything: Wireless Charging, Reverse Wireless Charging, IP68 rating, and more, Flagship Chipset, More RAM, One of the Best Android skin, Premium design and much more.

For Water, A 0 means smartphone is not water-resistant at all, while a score of 8 represents you can put the device in water beyond the 1-meter depth and it will survive.
