Pre-booking for OnePlus 7 Pro goes live on Amazon

Share

If you're skeptical about pre-booking the smartphone online, customers can also walk into their nearest OnePlus Store, Croma and Reliance Digital stores to pre-book the OnePlus 7 Pro at ₹2,000 starting 8 May. In a preemptive move, the company is letting us know that its next device also won't have an IP rating.

Dust and water resistance have become a standard feature in most flagship smartphones.

The company posted a short and typically snarky video explaining why: it just costs extra to get an IP certification. While that is the same as every other OEM that does actually provide an IP rating, the difference is that an IP rated phone has actually been tested in specific circumstances.

Even if OnePlus wants to use cost as a reason, fans would probably accept it if their devices are still priced competitively like its earlier models. One thing the phones won't have is wireless charging.

The video, we assume, is meant to prove to consumers that just because the device isn't IP certified doesn't mean you can't still dunk it into a bucket of water and have it be OK. That's why IP ratings are so important to them. As always, like with any phone, don't go looking to get your phone wet because the company's warranty does not cover water damage. This isn't a call to action to drop your phone in a bucket, but communicates that IP ratings are simply a classification, and that it's not required for water-resistance. Notably, those who pre-book OnPlus 7 Pro will need to pay Rs 750 as processing fee when claiming the one-time screen replacement insurance. Whether you think it would be worth the extra cash on a phone that's expected to retail for $600 or more is another question altogether. We have already received a specifications leak and a few images of the OnePlus 7 Pro which reveal about its impressive display and what it is going to pack inside. Let us know in the comments.
