Last Update Date : Jan 12. 2018

Can I use my Galaxy S7 device in sea water?


Galaxy Note8: What does the IP68 rating mean?



The Galaxy S7 is an IP68 Rated device. IP68 rating means complete protection from dust

ingress, and temporary immersion in up  to 1.5 metre of freshwater for up to 30 minutes.


Please use caution not to immerse the device in water deeper than 1.5 m or keep it submerged

for more than 30 minutes.


Samsung guarantee simple life water-resistance when the SIM Tray is attached tightly but does

not guarantee that the device will operate normally if it is used in water or other liquids.


  How to properly care for and use your Samsung Galaxy S7


Generally, we advise not to expose the device to water moving with force at high pressure.

Besides, we advise not to immerse the device in hot water including salt water, ionized water, or soapy water.


Water & Dust resistant


If the device is exposed to clean water, dry it thoroughly with a clean, soft cloth.

And, if after use in sea water, special attention must be paid to the device.

If the device is allowed to dry naturally after exposure to sea water, it is possible that points

such as the Microphone, Speaker and Earpiece may be blocked due to salt or sand.   

 After exposure to sea water please immediately rinse the sealed device gently with clean

water after contact with salt water or other substances.

After rinsing the device please dry it thoroughly with a clean, soft cloth.

However exposing device to other liquids not clean water with ambient temperature may

affect to the device’s performance and appearance even if you may rinse device with clean water and dry it thoroughly.
