Vivo, the mid-range mobile phone manufacturer, usually focus on the camera but nowadays, they have started looking into many other aspects, such as waterproofing. The all-new Vivo V23 5G and V23 Pro are set to be launched into the market with some cool features, and people want to know whether they are waterproof.
In 2022, having a water-resistant mobile phone has become a necessity. Owning a waterproof and dustproof mobile phone means you can use it while you relax in a pool or use your handset in the rain without fear of damaging it. Usually, waterproof mobiles have an IP(Ingress Protection) rating—IP67 or IP68 rating, which means the device can withstand being submerged in water for 30 minutes.
In an IP rating, if the first digit is “6” then it means it has good dust protection while the second digit is related to liquids. The second digit should be “7” or more than it, as below that is not a complete water-resistant phone which means it can handle water splashes only.
Vivo V23 5G Waterproof and Dustproof or not?
Vivo V23 5G launched on Jan 5 2022 features an AMOLED 6.44 inches display. The mobile is powered by the MediaTek Dimenisty 920 5G octa-core processor. The mobile comes in two variants—8GB Ram with 128GB Rom and 12Gb Ram with 256GB Rom.
It runs on Android 12 with a customized OS by Vivo called ColorOS. Vivo V23 5G has a triple camera setup and if we talk about the rear camera setup, it features 64 MP + 8 MP + 2 MP, and on the front, we have a dual-camera: 50 MP + 8 MP.
If we talk about the hardware utilities, then it has a non-removable Li-Po 4200 mAh battery + Fast charging 44W. We heard it can charge 0-100% in 20 minutes. The device weighs 171 grams.
Now, let’s talk about IP rating which decides if a mobile is waterproof or not. Well, Vivo V23 5G does not have an IP rating which means the mobile is not waterproof or dustproof. still, a few YouTubers have tested the water resistivity of this mobile but the mobile can withstand a few splashes(very few) but will not be able to withstand when submerged in the water. So, Vivo V23 5G is not waterproof or Dustproof.
Vivo V23 Pro is Waterproof and Dustproof or not?
Vivo V23 Pro is officially launched on Jan 5, 2022. The device features an AMOLED 6.56 inches display. It is powered by a MediaTek MT6893 Dimensity 1200 Octa-core processor. Vivo V23 Pro is launched in 2 basic variants—8GB Ram with 128GB Rom and 12Gb Ram with 256GB Rom.
The device runs on Android 12 with a customized Os called ColorOS. Vivo V23 Pro has a Triple camera setup on the rear side: 108 MP + 8 MP + 2 MP. On the front we have a dual-camera setup: 50 MP + 8 MP.
The smartphone is fueled with a Li-Po 4300mAh battery and supports fast charging. You can buy the Vivo V23 Pro in 2 colors, Sunshine Gold and Stardust Black.
A cool feature of Vivo V23 pro is that when the back panel is exposed to the sunlight, the color of the back panel is changed. The device features many sensors such as a compass, accelerometer, gyroscope, proximity, and Fingerprint (under display, optical). The device weighs 171 grams.
The Vivo V23 Pro doesn’t have any Ip rating which means, the phone is neither waterproof nor dustproof. So, you will not be able to use it by a pool. But, unofficially many YouTubers tested the Vivo V23 Pro for its water resistance. You can head to youtube and search for the same to know more about it.
So, we can say that either of the smartphones, Vivo V23 5G and Vico V23 Pro have waterproof or dustproof abilities. One of the main reasons these mobile phones didn’t feature an Ip rating is because of their price. These mobile phones are launched at a mid-range price and we shouldn’t expect more from a mid-range smartphone. That being said, it’s a wrap for now.
