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.

This is expected from such a mid-range smartphone. However it might be splashproof, so we will still proceed with our Oppo A5 2020 waterproof test.
