Samsung just announced two new foldable phones on this Unpacked event, and if you like the clamshell foldable design, you would like to learn more about the Galaxy Z Flip 4. It is a modest redesign compared to its predecessor, with ” a “slimmer hinge, straightened edges, contrasting hazed back glass and glossy metal frames.” But in other aspects, it is no different with the Galaxy Z Flip 3, including the IP rating.
Is Galaxy Z Flip 4 waterproof
The Galaxy Z Flip 4 inherit IPX8 from its predecessor, which means it can be submerged in fresh water for up to 1.5 meters for a duration of up to 30 minutes. However, you’d better keep it away from the pool or the salty water on the beach, as “salt may accumulate and block the primary microphone, earpiece, or external speaker.”
On the other hand, the “X” in the IPX8 rating indicates that the phone isn’t able to handle dust or debris. This is a common problem for foldables, whose hinge mechanism could get damaged by sand, big dust particles or what else in your pocket.
Anyway, IPX8 rating on the Galaxy Z Flip 4 is commendable, considering other foldable phones on the market can only handle occasional sprays and have no official IP rating, such as the Oppo Find N and Moto Razr.
What to do if your phone fall into water accidentally
If your phone falls into water by accident, it is recommended that you dry it out before you use it. Don’t make a phone call or charge the device or else the water may muffle the sound or cause permanent damage.
