Wait For IP68 Water-Resistance & Wireless Charging
After some of the comments OnePlus made in 2019 about water-resistance ratings, I might take some heat for this comment, but it makes sense from a business perspective.
The OnePlus 7 Pro is almost just as water-resistant as most of the competition, but the company didn't label it as such as they didn't want to spend the money for the actual "IP-rating" attachment. Well, at least that's what they claimed in the press.
And whether fans want it, or don't care, it's something that's important when you're trying to sell the phone in carrier stores like Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile next to a water-resistant Galaxy S11, Pixel 4, and iPhone 11 Pro/iPhone 12.
If the OnePlus 8 actually ditches the pop-up selfie camera, they'll absolutely call this phone water-resistant. Giving them feature-parity with the competition.
And guess what, it'll have wireless charging this time too! Yes, the company is reportedly finally ready to embrace wireless charging of some sort. Hopefully this is a faster wireless charging 2.0 or 3.0 technology, but we'll have to wait and see.
