IPX8 protection on paper means that while Samsung didn’t go through dusty tests, it survives half a meter deep in clear water.
It has been mentioned on several occasions that sooner or later the design of flexible mobile phones may go so far as to talk about protection against moisture, previously the SamMobileand now Twitter leaker Max Weinbach claims for sure: the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3 will be IP-protected at the IPX8 level. So we can’t talk about dust resistance yet, but now it is almost certain that Samsung’s new pair will be the world’s first flexible mobile series, which will be waterproof and will withstand a depth of at least one meter for 30 minutes without any soaking.
Of course, in practice we know that a traditionally designed mobile, say a Galaxy S21 can withstand underwater for weeks, but with a bendable device, moving parts and opening mechanics, it’s much harder to solve, plus if someone chooses on a beach vacation try first what your waterproof mobile can do, it can ruin your phone very quickly because of the salt water. The bottom line is that an IP-protected yet flexible mobile is sure to be a milestone that will reduce the resentment of the technology in many, but the price of phones doesn’t seem to be slowing down yet. The mobiles will officially unveil at the Unpacked event on August 11th.
