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.
