OnePlus 9 Pro will likely have an official IP68 rating as per the latest leak. The OnePlus 9 series is rumoured to launch sometime in mid-March 2021, however, that has not stopped the rumour mill from churning out more and more details about the successors to the OnePlus 8 line-up. This is when the company CEO himself dismissed a leaked CAD render of the OnePlus 9 Pro by posting a tweet that said, “No design is ever set in stone.”

According to the latest report by Max Jambor on Voice, the OnePlus 9 Pro will have an official IP certification. The OnePlus 8 Pro is also IP68 rated so in all likelihood the successor will also get the same IP68 certification. The IP68 certification ensures that your phone can stay in water at around 1.5 meters depth upto 30 minutes. 

Interestingly, the report states that the OnePlus 9 Pro might be the only phone in the series to be IP rated as the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9E are unlikely to receive any kind of IP certification. That said, OnePlus could always add water ingress protection measures and not choose to get it certified as an attempt to keep the price affordable.

It is also rumoured that the OnePlus duo might be joined by the OnePlus 9E, though the phone has not been leaked yet and so, very little is known about it at the moment. The 9E is said to sit between the OnePlus Nord and OnePlus 9 and could be a toned-down version of the latter.

OnePlus 9 is expected to feature a 6.55-inch display while the OnePlus 9 Pro is rumoured to come with a 6.7-inch screen. Moreover, there are rumours that the screen supports 120Hz refresh rate and not 144Hz as was speculated previously. 

The OnePlus 9 is rumoured to have a triple camera setup on the back that includes a 48MP primary camera, another 48MP ultra-wide-angle camera and a macro or depth sensor. 

OnePlus 9 series is rumoured to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor. The leak indicates that the upcoming phones in the series could have IP68 certification, NFC and dual stereo speakers. The company could also provide the same 65W fast charging that it debuted with the OnePlus 8T in October along with support for 40W fast wireless charging.
