Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3, Z Fold3 water resistance details

Samsung is gearing up for the Galaxy Z Flip3, Z Fold3 launch. The two foldable smartphones from Samsung will launch on August 11. Ahead of the launch, tipster Max Weinbach has shared more details about the water resistance on the two Samsung foldable phones. The tipster claims that Samsung will launch the Z Fold 3 and Z Flip3 with an IP rating. Weinbach revealed that the Fold 3 and Flip 3 will launch with an IPX8 rating. This means that the foldable phones will survive in 1 meter underwater for 30 minutes.

It would be interesting to see how Samsung manages to achieve the feat as the foldable phones feature hinges and ports that are prone to dust accumulation. There is no word on how the South Korean giant will tackle this obstacle. 

Other details of the two foldable phones have leaked already. The Galaxy Z Flip3 design renders reveal that it has a bigger outer display. The clamshell foldable phone will feature a punch-hole cutout and come in a dual-tone colourway. Click here to know more about the Galaxy Z Flip 3.
