Galaxy S8 And iPhone 8 Could Be The Flagships With The Highest Level In Water Resistance
Upcoming flagships Samsung Galaxy S8 and the iPhone 8 are expected to be two of the most incredible mobile devices released this year, not only because of the fact that both brands have been characterized for its greatness, but also because the South Korean giant wants to restore its reputation after the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, while Apple is launching this smartphone to commemorate the 10th anniversary of its first iPhone. However, latest information suggests that both flagships have another reason to become the coolest phones this year: having the highest level of water resistance.
While Samsung Already Had The IP68-Certification, Apple Is Just Getting It
According to Phone Arena, the Galaxy S8 and the iPhone 8 will carry the IP68-certification rating for dust and water resistance, just as the previous flagships Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, which had a water immersion resistance up to 1.5 meters for up to 30 minutes. Naturally, this was something that excels these phones´ popularity, so both Samsung and Apple has been forced to include this feature to its new mobile device, in a moment in which the Chinese smartphones will be the most ferocious competitors in the market.
Although this is not the first time that the Cupertino company makes its phones water-resistant, the iPhone 7 and 7Plus only had the IP67 certification, which makes it less powerful as the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge in this field. Nevertheless, with the IP68, Samsung and Apple´s flagships will be incomparable mobile devices in this particular feature, which could be effective for both companies to increase their products´ popularity.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 And iPhone 8 Could Be Used In Almost Any Kind Of Environments
As reported by Pocketnow, the thing about getting the IP68-certification is that both the Galaxy S8 and iPhone 8 can get dunks in deeper bodies of water without any kind of problem, being this a feature that will turn the device into something out of this world, since you can practically use it in the pool, in the shower, or even on a rainy day.
