Galaxy S9 - Is my Samsung Galaxy S9 (SM-G960W) dust and water resistant (IP68 rating)?

Follow these tips carefully to prevent damage to the phone:

     • Whenever your phone gets wet, dry it thoroughly with a clean, soft cloth.

     • Do not expose the phone to salt water or ionized water. If your phone is exposed to salt water, wash the phone with fresh water, and then dry thoroughly with a clean, soft cloth. Otherwise, when it dries, salt may accumulate and block the primary microphone, earpiece, and external speaker.

     • When drying off your phone, be sure to pat the earpiece (top front of the phone), primary microphone (bottom of phone), external speaker (bottom of phone), and the power/accessory (USB) interface connector with a clean, soft cloth to remove as much water as possible.

     • When making a call immediately after your phone is wet, the microphone may have water in it, which may lower the volume that the other person will hear. After drying off the phone, allow the phone to air-dry before making a call.

     • Physical damage to your phone such as chips and cracks can significantly reduce its ability to resist dust and water.

Phone may not perform in all extreme conditions.
