Huawei P20 Pro Is the device waterproof? Solved!

Many smartphones that come on the market have one great feature: they are protected against the ingress of water. If you are thinking about buying the new Huawei P20 Pro, you will certainly want to know if it is waterproof.

This is exactly the question we want to answer in this article: Yes, the Huawei P20 Pro is waterproof after IP67 certification. So what exactly does that mean?

Explanation of IP certification:

The abbreviation "IP" stands for "International Protection". The numbers behind this can be broken down as follows:

The first number indicates how well the device is protected against the penetration of foreign objects such as dust, sand, etc.

The second number stands for protection against the ingress of water. The higher the number, the better protected the phone.

Numerical significance with protection against foreign objects:

0 - no protection

1 - Protection against solid foreign objects (diameter from 50 mm)

2 - Protection against solid foreign objects (diameter from 12.5 mm)

3- Protection against solid foreign objects (diameter from 2.5 mm)

4 - Protection against solid foreign objects (diameter from 1.0 mm)

5 - Protection against dust in harmful quantity

6 - dust-tight

Numerical significance with protection against water:

0 - no protection

1 - Protected against vertically falling dripping water

2 - Protected against falling dripping water with a housing inclination of 15°

3 - Protected against falling spray water up to 60° against the vertical

4 - Protected against splash water from all sides

5 - Protected against water from all sides Protected against jet water (nozzle) from any angle

6 - Protected against strong jet water

7 - Protected against temporary immersion

8 - Protected against permanent immersion

The Huawei P20 Pro with IP67 is therefore dustproof and protected against temporary immersion. This means that the smartphone can remain in a pool with a maximum depth of 1 meter for a short time without water penetrating into the housing and destroying electronic components.

7 - Protected against temporary immersion
This is not meaningful information. How long and how deep immersion is what I would like to know for the Huawei P20 Pro.
