Reliable Water and Dust Resistance
Built tough to withstand the elements. Samsung Galaxy A8 is IP68 rated to shield against the harsh challenges of the outdoors. Public safety officers and delivery personnel will benefit most from this protection when working in unfavourable weather conditions that can damage their devices.
*Galaxy A8 is rated IP68, meaning it is protected against dust and water ingress. Water resistance rating is based on test conditions of submersion in up to 1.5 meters of fresh water for up to 30 minutes. To prolong the life of your device rinse it with clean water after submersion or spillage and dry thoroughly with a microfiber cloth before use. * IP68 rating does not protect against heavy rain and significant splashes.
