Display/ touchscreen The display is working fine, however, the touch is nonresponsive after the waterproof test. The display got water damage, and the touchscreen is also not working.
Camera No issues in camera and its lens No issues in camera or its lens
I/O & speaker The charging port not working, and the earpiece volume is muffled up. No issues.

Therefore, we can’t tell which one will survive; clearly, both devices are well built, but both of them are lacking proper official IP68 waterproof ratings. So these are not waterproof devices.
