OnePlus released a new OnePlus 6 teaser confirming that the Android flagship will be most durable than any previous phone models brought forth by the company.

"Don't you just hate it when you have to stop using your phone when it rains? So do we," said the OnePlus India on Twitter. It also posted a short clip showing water dropping on a smartphone, understood to be the upcoming OnePlus 6, thus confirming it will boast water-resistant capability.

Going by the latest standard set by Samsung (in Galaxy S9 series), OnePlus is most likely to offer OnePlus 6 with IP68 certification. Meaning, the phone will be able to survive in the water for up to five feet (1.5 meters) for close to 30 minutes.

This is a welcome move considering the fact that OnePlus, which proclaims to produce flagship killer phone, lacked this water durability feature to date. Thankfully, it is making amends with the OnePlus 6.
