Samsung is not one that makes drastic changes to what already works. They have retained the IP68 IEC 60529 rating, first awarded to the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy Note 10. If you are a bit confused about what this rating means, do not worry, it is actually pretty easy once you get flesh and bone.
In short, IEC Standard 60529 consists of a series of standardized tests conducted by the National Electrical Manufacturers Association. These give a handset such as the Note 10 a corresponding IP rating based on its ability to withstand exposure to water and dirt. According to the standard:
This standard describes a system for classifying the degrees of protection of housings of electrical equipment under two conditions: 1) protection of persons against access to dangerous parts and protection of equipment against the ingress of solid foreign objects and 2) the Ingress of water. The degree of protection against these two conditions is indicated by an IP code.
The "IP Code" is an abbreviation for "International Protection Marking". "It's simply a measure of how well a smartphone protects against water and dirt, and the handset will then receive two numerical ratings based on its performance, displayed next to" IP. "
The first number indicates the durability of the device against dirt and dust, while the second number indicates how well it is protected against water All Galaxy Note 10 models have received IP68 certification, which is composed as follows:
- IP: Short form for " Ingress Protection, the rating system that measures the resistance of a handset to water and dirt.
- 6: The first number in the IP rating indicates the resistance of a device to dirt and debris. seems to be low, but means complete protection against dirt and dust.
- 8: Next, the water resistance of the smartphone is displayed as the second number in the Bewer is specified. The "8" means that the newest grade will withstand submersion in water of up to 1.5 meters deep for up to 30 minutes. To put this into perspective, the rating of the older S7 of 7 meant that it could survive submerged for 30 minutes at a depth of one meter.
The Grade 10 IP68 rating is for the elements and should assure you that your device will withstand sudden downpours, accidental drops into a sink or tub filled with water, and even a full sandstorm. However, do not get carried away, as the review will not consider chemicals and other corrosive substances that can damage your phone.
IP ratings do not consider chemicals, salt water and other contaminants. Chlorine, Fluoride, Alcohol, and Vinegar are good examples of these because these common liquids can damage the Touch 10 rubber gaskets and affect their water resistance. Removing liquids should continue to be a priority, especially if you consider that Samsung will void your warranty if yours Note 10 suffers a water damage.
