Samsung just leased its new phone, the Galaxy Note 20 and 20 Ultra. Both of the phones are equipped with many excellent features people were expecting, but one of the most desired may be the waterproof IP rating. According to the official statistics, Galaxy Note 20 and Note Ultra both feature an IP68 rating. So, can you say that are they waterproof? Let’s have a check.
Many flagships may go through a waterproof and dustproof test and get an IP rating accordingly. The “I” stands for the protection against small particles, or dust. If a phone without dustproof protection drops in dust or is stabbed by wires, screws, and other small objects, the components inside the chassis are likely to be damaged and the phone may get slower gradually. Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and 20 Ultra score 6 in this aspect, the highest level of dust resistance, which means that the phone is actually dustproof.
The “P” represents protection against liquid. The water resistance rating is generally considered to have 8 levels in total, but there is a “9K” actually. That is the highest level, meaning that your phone can withstand close-range high pressure, high-temperature spray-downs. For the Galaxy Note 20/20 Ultra, the IP68 rating enables it to survive the ingress of dust and the continuous immersion in water beyond 1 meter (slightly different according to different manufacturers). So, you can take your new Galaxy Note phone in the water, but remember never to take it any deeper than 1.5 meters below water and any longer than 30 minutes.
Actually, it is not precise to ask if a phone waterproof or not. For now, we don’t have any smartphone that is completely waterproof, and manufacturers are only able to increase the level of water resistance and dust resistance as much as possible. However, the sure thing is that a water-resistant phone will bring us higher safety and more fun than those not.
