Water is a super threat to electronics. The water immersing into your phone will damage the electronic components and accelerate the aging of them. As the price of smartphones continuously increases, especially the steep price of flagship phones, smartphone companies did a lot of work to level up the water resistance of their smartphone. How about the upcoming Samsung’s flagship phone, Galaxy S10/ S10 plus? Is it waterproof enough to tweet while you shower in the morning?
How to describe the water-resistance level? How to understand IP rating?
Before discussing the waterproof performance of Samsung Galaxy S10, let’s learn about what is IP rating firstly. IP, or Ingress Protection, is a universally accepted measurement of varying degrees for dust and liquid resistance. Assessing the waterproof performance of the waterproof connector mainly depends on the two digits of the IPXX. The first digit indicates the level of protection that the enclosure provides against access to hazardous parts and the ingress of solid foreign objects. The second digit indicates the level of protection that the enclosure provides against harmful ingress of water. And IP68 is the highest level of waterproof rating standards. Devices such as Samsung Galaxy S9 backed by IP68 are deemed fit enough to withstand dust, dirt, and sand, and are resistant to submersion up to a maximum depth of 1.5m underwater for up to 30 minutes.

When the smartphone industry has dropped 3.5mm audio port for thinner phones and makes full waterproof bodies possible.

Therefore, we can tell that it will come with the same IP rating as Samsung Galaxy S9’s, which is IP68. It can survive to submersion up to a maximum depth of 1.5m underwater for up to 30 minutes. Samsung has released their latest Galaxy S lineup and we can find accurate specs of waterproof on their official website. It’s IP68!

What to Do When Samsung S10 Fall into Water?

After it’s out of the water, use a tissue or dry towel to dry the surface of Note 9, but do not boot. Many people will first check the phone whether it is able to boot, which is extremely wrong. The power may cause the mainboard to burn.
Use a hair dryer to blow the phone. Do not make it too hot.
Put the desiccant and your S10 in the same enclosure space.
