The waterproof technology is a must-have feature in any modern smartphone. Since it gives an extra layer of security and some new features to mobile, many smartphone manufacturers are now shipping their devices with official waterproof ratings. For any smartphone to be waterproof, it must possess a special IP waterproof rating. An IP rating is an international standard that is used to define levels of sealing effectiveness of modern smartphones. These IP ratings are presented in the form of IP followed by two numbers. The IP68 rating is the best that a smartphone can hold. However, it is important to note that this IP testing is done against freshwater. So you might end with slightly different results against saltwater or other liquids such as soft drinks.

Because of the premium price tag of Huawei Honor V30 and V30 Pro, there are huge chances that these devices are actually waterproof. After checking with the Offical website spec list of both the devices, no official IP68 waterproof ratings are there. So it’s safe to assume that both of these devices are not actually waterproof devices. Well, we will explore that with our Huawei Honor V30 and V30 Pro waterproof test.
