Samsung just launched new models in its A range of smartphone series. The new Samsung Galaxy A20S, A30S, A50S & A70S are the latest offerings by Samsung. However, are they actually waterproof smartphones that you can buy today? Well, today in this post, we will find out whether these new smartphones by Samsung are waterproof or not.
The new Samsung Galaxy A20S, A30S, a50S and A70S are the latest offering by Samsung. All these devices are launched in the mid-range segment with the premium build quality and best features. Because of all these devices falls in the range of below 20k, it is hard to expect an official IP67 or IP68 waterproof ratings. Samsung has ever launched any official waterproof device which falls in the mid-range, so it brings down the probability much below. But don’t worry, as we will conduct a waterproof test on all these devices and will show you the result.
Do Samsung Galaxy A20S, A30S, A50s, and A70s have Waterproof and Dust protection?
For any smartphone to be waterproof, it must possess certain IP ratings. These IP ratings can tell us whether the new smartphone is waterproof, splashproof or both. Many modern smartphone manufacturers are now including IP67 or IP68 ratings with their devices.
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.
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.
According to the official website of Samsung, no IP68 waterproof ratings are to be found on the website. This suggests that these new devices are not actually waterproof.
Samsung Galaxy A20s, A30s, A50s, and A70s Specifications
Many smartphone buyers check the waterproof rating of a smartphone before buying the product. A waterproof device can’t get any liquid damage while swimming, in rain or in the shower. This is why the modern generation demands a waterproof smartphone. While a dustproof smartphone would allow any dust particle to enter in the device. This can prevent any damage caused by dust such as screen flickering, sound-muffling, etc. Before we move further and check the official waterproof & dustproof ratings for the devices, let’s get to see device specifications first.
