Currently, in India, every buyer demands an IP rating on their smartphone. However, Realme doesn’t provide any information about IP ratings in Realme 8s 5G. Some sources leak that it has an IP rating, but the company doesn’t expose it. That’s why we have decided to arrange a water test for this device because of no positive official statement on IP rating. So, the obvious answer is no, Realme 8s 5G is not a waterproof device.

Realme 8s 5G Waterproof Tests

In our test, the smartphone has to go through different conditions, such as:

  • 30 Seconds dipped in Water or accidental splashes.
  • 5 Minutes dipped in Water.
  • 10 Minutes dipped in Water.

Conclusion

After thoroughly testing the Realme 8s 5G, we reached the final crucial outlooks. As per result shows the device is splashproof and withstand to some extent of dustproof also. So if you do not care about IP rating, you should go for this smartphone. However, I must warn users that the device is not waterproof or splashproof at all. There are no official IP67 or IP68 ratings for the device, which strongly suggests that it is not a waterproof device. Furthermore, all of our tests failed because the device does not have any active water-resistant coating or any other protective gear to protect it against liquid.
