Can I use my Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8+ in water?

 

Looking for help getting started with your Galaxy S8 or S8+? Click here to view an interactive guide to your device.


 

 

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ devices have a rating of IP68 meaning they are resistant to dust and can be submerged in fresh water for up to thirty minutes at 1.5 metres.

 

However, the touchscreen may not work properly if used in water.

 

The device should not be exposed to fast-moving water, hot or soapy water, water that is ionized, or salt water. If the device has been exposed to water, dry it thoroughly with a clean soft cloth.

 

After the device has been exposed to water, you should wait until it is thoroughly dry before you charge it. The device will recognise if the USB port is still wet or damp and will show a water drop icon on the screen. You will not be able to charge the device until the USB port is dry.
