Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Is the device waterproof?

Besides a strong CPU, a lot of RAM, a great camera, dual SIM, NFC and wireless charging, the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 offers a lot of technology that should be protected against influences like water, dust and humidity.

Users will ask themselves whether the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 is also waterproof and can therefore be submerged in water for a short time without affecting the technology.


We want to give you the answer to this question:

Yes, the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and Note Ultra are waterproof to IP68 certification.

What this means exactly is explained here:

IP68 means that the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 is protected against dust and fresh water up to a depth of 1.5 meters and a maximum dwell time of up to 60 minutes.

So you are well prepared if the Samsung Galaxy Note should fall into the water 20 times. Of course, using it outside in the rain is no problem either.

Is the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 suitable for underwater photography? Despite IP certification, the device should not be used for underwater photography. Because the conditions for the IP class were tested under laboratory conditions.

So it is already possible that higher water pressures are created when jumping into the pool and thus water penetrates into the housing.

Even salt water can cause the IP certification to no longer be within the established rules and thus damage can occur.

For this reason it is not recommended to use the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 for underwater photos.

You now know that the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra are waterproof and what conditions you should keep in mind.
