    Edit; Turns put that they did mention it, My bad.

    Edit 2; What do you guys think of this semi water resistant feature? Is it something to buy a OP6 for? Or even upgrade from OP5T to OP6? Imo, I don't really think so. nothing has truly changed and is mostly the OP5T. The speed might be faster on the OP6 but how great is that change? I don't mind "waiting" 0.3 second longer for my apps to change.

    Yeah, they did, however it is not the kind of Water Resistance everybody is used to. @Carl said it is resistance to daily water or something like this, which translates to, a rainy day won't kill your phone. Throwing it in the water it is still on your risk and not covered by warranty.

    Dude, do not invent, no one said like that.

    Teflon, yes that's a certain degree of water resistant.

    And being able to resist the penetration of water, I guess nearby all phones have a certain degree of resistance.:D

    Even if they did, it doesn't guarantee anything.

    Review of the OP6 are on youtube. One I saw which compared it against S9 had the phone under the tap and it seemed fine.

    It is suggested that there is no certification due to cost (i.e. to keep price lower)

    Overall I will probably buy it even though there wasn't a lot of changes compared to OP5T. Only main diff seems to be the notch and processor. The camera improvements is still questionable.

    It guarantee that phone has at least passed the tests. Of course those certifications cost for companies. But it's impossible to get it, if phone isn't really what it claims to be. Evan IP65 can take much more than few drops of daily water..

    Water standards example.

    • IP65 Enclosures – Resistant to Waterjets | Duration 15 Minutes or More | Water Volume 12.5 Litres per Minute | Pressure 30 kPa at distance of 3 m
    • IP66 Enclosures – Resistant to Powerful Waterjets | Duration 3 Minutes or More | Water Volume 100 Litres per Minute | Pressure 100 kPa at distance of 3 m
    • IP67 Enclosures – Protect Against Immersion up to 1 m | Duration 30 Minutes or More | Immersion at depth of at least 1 m measured from bottom of object and at least 15 cm measured from top of object

    ya there is no ip certificate but they tell we can use in rain that can't affect ur phone but still it's for limited rain incase huge rainfall means I think it's got some trouble
    ya it's similar to 5t only improvement in screen and cam like EIS AND OIS I think one plus next mob will makes to satisfy our expectation
    anyway congrats for their new product
