New Delhi, June 7, 2024: An OPPO India dipstick—conducted in May on Instagram, LinkedIn and X—found that 42% of 6000+ respondents need a water-resistant smartphone for monsoons, 30% want a waterproof device for beach or poolside use, 19% prefer drop-proof protection for clumsy moments, while 9% said they valued a scratch-proof toughened glass to brave coins and keys in their pockets and purses. To meet this articulated need, OPPO India will introduce the country’s first super-rugged monsoon-ready smartphone—the OPPO F27 Pro+ 5G—on June 13, 2024.

Monsoon-ready & waterproof with IP69, IP68 and IP66

The OPPO F27 Pro+ 5G boasts a waterproof screen and waterproofing on key openings, including a completely waterproof microphone, speaker openings, SIM card slot pinhole and USB port.

The microphone openings and earpiece speaker are protected by a waterproof, breathable film for audio permeability while keeping the water out, while its USB unit comprises a silicone sealing ring designed to ensure water-tightness.

Additionally, OPPO uses a new waterproof circuit design, so water jets cannot compromise the phone via any openings; this is a critical type of damage a monsoon downpour can cause to a device.

According to a 2021 Cashify report, water damage often impacts the smartphone motherboard, resulting in a need for replacement. An international survey, published by the Organisation of Consumers and Users (OCU) in 2018, found that 35% of users experienced some form of water damage within the first two years of smartphone use; the F27 Pro+ 5G was designed to address this issue.

Additionally, the F27 Pro+ 5G comes with an innovative feature designed to enhance usability; it supports accurate touch operation even with wet hands. Regardless of rainwater, vapour, or moisture on the screen, users can now slide and touch-operate their phone with “Splash Touch” accuracy.

Adding solid credibility to the F27 Pro+ 5G waterproofing claims are the three Ingress Protection (IP) certifications it carries. The F27 Pro+ 5G sets a benchmark in the industry as the first smartphone in India to pass three waterproofing tests…

·     IP66: The highest level of protection against dust and regular water jets.

·     IP68: The highest level of protection against dust and water immersion up to 1.5m for 30 mins. 

·     IP69: The highest level of protection against dust and high-pressure water jets at temperatures up to 80°C.

The OPPO F27 Pro+ 5G not only meets but exceeds the standards of competing smartphones to be a water-resistant, monsoon-ready smartphone.

Military Grade Durability

The OPPO F27 Pro+ 5G’s durability goes beyond dust and water resistance due to its damage-proof 360° Armour Body that shields from internal and external impacts. Each of the four corners connects the back cover with the body to minimise the risk of separation and distortion after drops. The front cover of the motherboard uses AM03—a high-strength, high-thermal conductivity aluminium alloy commonly used in high-performance computing environments—to protect critical components. Additionally, the interior is filled with cushioning materials, such as sponges, to enhance drop resistance and safeguard essential components during impacts.

The OPPO F27 Pro+ 5G is also subjected to stringent internal durability tests. Its charging interface is subjected to 20,000 plugs and unplugs, each phone button is pressed 2,00,000 times, while the product is tested against 42,000 micro-drops, as well as high-frequency drops from low heights.

The device has received the Swiss SGS Premium Performance 5 Stars Drop Resistance certification after passing multi-angle drop tests, extreme height shock resistance and extreme frequency shock resistance. It also carries the MIL-STD-810H Method 516.8 certification—usually found on shock-resistant hard drives and laptops designed for military use—that involves five parameter tests: Functional Shock, Transportation Shock, Fragility, Transit Drop and Crash Hazard Shock.

The OPPO F27 Pro+ 5G ships with a Corning Gorilla Glass Victus 2 display at the front—for 180% improvement in drop resistance and three times stronger scratch resistance over its predecessor—to ensure the display remains scratch and crack-free, even if you drop it.

Leather-backed premium design

The OPPO F27 Pro+ 5G—which will be available in Midnight Navy and Dusk Pink colours—is not just sturdy, it is also stylish, thanks to the premium leather back with a Cosmos Ring design and a 3D Curved AMOLED display. Taking it up a notch, OPPO has coated the leather back with siloxane to improve stain resistance and to ensure that customers can use the phone case-free.

The smartphone’s circular camera module adopts a centrally symmetrical layout that showcases the charm of the central axis, while its 7.89mm slim profile and 177g weight ensure a sleek and comfortable in-hand feel.
