Whether it’s the Galaxy S24, the Galaxy S24 Plus, or the Galaxy S24 Ultra, these phones come with several improvements and upgrades

Let’s shed light on how well the Galaxy S24 and Galaxy S24 Ultra will withstand daily wear and tear.

Are Samsung Galaxy S24 or Galaxy S24 Ultra Waterproof?

No, the new Galaxy S24 series phones are not completely waterproof. Instead, the Samsung Galaxy S24 phones are water-resistant and come with an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance.

The “IP68” rating by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) signifies protection from both solid dust particles and water immersion. The first digit in the Ingress Protection rating, indicates protection against solid dust particles, while, the second digit denotes their ability to withstand water immersion.

Samsung says the new Galaxy S24, S24 Plus, and S24 Ultra can endure submersion in fresh water to a maximum depth of 1.5 meters for up to 30 minutes and are protected from dust – all without the need for extra cases or covers.

In practical terms, the Galaxy S24 series phones are designed to withstand accidental splashes, spills, or light exposure to water.

Another thing to keep in mind is, that water resistance is not permanent it may diminish over time due to normal wear and tear, also, be aware that water damage is typically not covered under warranty.

Samsung advises users to avoid taking the phone to the beach or swimming pool as salt water or ionized water can damage the water and dust resistance feature. Another advice for S24 owners is to promptly rinse, residue, or dry the phone immediately if wet.

What kind of water exposure can the Galaxy S24 resist?

Samsung Galaxy S24 can withstand submersion in up to 1.5 meters of fresh water for up to 30 minutes. All other liquids, including water with salt and chlorine, can damage the phone internally.

Can I take my Galaxy S24 (Ultra) in the shower?

The Galaxy S24 series phones are designed to handle a quick splash or light rain. You can take it in the shower, however, Samsung says the touch screen and some other features may not work properly while the device is in the water.

Just like any electronic device or smartphone, it’s important to treat the Galaxy S24 with care and follow the company’s guidelines to enjoy its water-resistant capabilities.
