Will the Samsung Galaxy S21 stand up to a harsh water test?

The Samsung Galaxy S21 is the new terminal that the South Korean firm has presented this year. Although it is not a revolution compared to its predecessor the Galaxy S20, It is still a great terminal for all those who want to acquire a new smartphone this 2021.

Since Samsung launched the Galaxy S7 on the market, all phones in the Galaxy S range have an IP68 rating (resistance to dust and water). A function that, although not really essential, can save us on more than one occasion.

The Samsung Galaxy S21 in addition to being very beautiful, it seems that it resists well to water

And now a youtuber called Photo Owl Time Lapse has wanted to test the water resistance of this beautiful and new terminal. Will the Samsung Galaxy S21 hold? Let's see.

The Samsung Galaxy S21 goes through a harsh water test

Will the Samsung Galaxy S21 last a week submerged in water? At the moment we are writing this news, the previously mentioned youtuber is recording this situation.

For more than a week, it will record the behavior of the S21 submerged in water and will count its evolution to check if, indeed, resists the whole process.

But how do you charge the phone? As they tell us from Gizmochina, via a wireless charger located on the walls of the water tank.

In the description of the video, the content creator states that you have only taken the device out of the water twice since the mobile's stopwatch does not exceed 99 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds. Likewise, he also acknowledges that the device showed him a humidity notification after almost 118 hours of being submerged in water.

At this point the screen was not responding and after 241 hours, the speakers didn't work either.

What does it mean for a mobile phone to be IP68, and what tests it has to pass to be so

Obviously the IP68 classification of the terminal indicates that it can resist in water up to 1.5 meters for 30 minutes, so the fact that the mobile keep running for at least as many days in the water is quite an achievement.
