Is Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 plus waterproof ?

Last Update Date : May 09. 2018

Yes. Don't be afraid to get wet. The Galaxy S9/S9+ both have an IP68 rating, meaning you don't have to stop texting or taking photos on account of rain.
 

IP rating: An IP (Ingress Protection) rating is an international standard that shows you the level of ingress protection of your device. With IP68, the S9/S9+ are resistant in fresh water to a maximum of depth of 1.5 metres for up to 30 minutes and are protected from dust all without the need for extra cases or covers.  

.

 

Follow these tips carefully to prevent damage to your device and to help maintain their water and dust-resistant performance:

1 Do not immerse the device in water deeper than 1.5 metres.
2 Do not keep it submerged in water less than 1.5 metres deep for more than 30 minutes.
3 Do not expose the device to water moving with force, such as water running from a tap, ocean waves or waterfalls.
4 Whenever your device gets wet, dry it thoroughly with a clean, soft cloth.
5 If the device is exposed to any liquid other than freshwater (salt water, ionised water etc), gently rinse it with still fresh water immediately and dry it thoroughly with a clean soft cloth. Otherwise, salt may accumulate and block primary earpiece and external speaker when it dries.
6 When drying off your device, be sure to pat the earpiece (top front of the phone), primary microphone (bottom), external speaker (back) and the power/accessory (USB) interface connector with a clean, soft cloth to remove as much water as possible.
7 After drying off your phone, allow it to air-dry before making a call. Calling while the phone is wet or microphone has water in it may lower the volume that the other person will hear.
