Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 received official IPX8 rating ahead of their launch

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 (unofficial name) are IPX8 waterproofs. The South Korean tech giant will unveil two new foldable smartphones at its Galaxy Unpacked event on August 11, and the water-resistance appears to be one of the improvements over the previous generation.

It’s just as impressive as the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 and Galaxy Z Flip but doesn’t get an official IP rating. Samsung’s next foldable flagships, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 will have an official IPX8. According to the famous tweet by Tarekomi MaxWeinbach (@MaxWeinbach), it is waterproof. 

This allows Samsung to provide adequate protection underwater, regardless of the design of the Galaxy Z Fold and Galaxy Z Flip series. The IPX8 rating means that the device has not been tested for dust resistance marked with an “X”, but the number “8” usually prevents prolonged immersion in water to a depth of 3 meters. 

It’s not the first time. Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 water resistance ratings have been announced. It was speculated in April that both phones had official IP ratings, but it was unclear at the time what ratings they would receive.
