4.3 Maintaining water and dust resistance

Galaxy S23 is water- and dust-resistant and meets the following international standards.

  • IP68 water resistance rating certification: According to the requirements of the IEC 60529 standard, it was tested in 1.5 m fresh water for 30 minutes without moving.

You must follow the guidelines to maintain the water- and dust-resistance of your device.

  • Do not expose the device to swimming pool water or seawater.
  • If the device is exposed to unclean water or other liquids, such as soapy water, oil, perfume, sunscreen, hand cleaner, chemical products such as cosmetics, or liquids that include the alcohol, clean the device with fresh water that does not flow, wipe it with a soft and clean cloth, and then dry it thoroughly before use to maintain the water resistance.
  • Do not expose the device to water moving with force. A sudden rise in the water pressure may exceed the guaranteed level of water resistance.
  • In places, such as a sauna or steam room, the water-resistant performance may be damaged because of sudden changes in the temperature.
  • If the device is subjected to an external shock or is damaged, its water resistance may decrease.

If the device is exposed to water or pollutants, follow the guidelines:

  • Wipe the device with a soft and clean cloth, and then dry it thoroughly.
  • If the microphone or speaker is not completely dry, it may result in the sound not being clear during a call.
  • The touch screen and other features may not work properly if the device is used in water.
  • Do not connect the charger or any accessories until the device is completely dry. The device can be damaged if an accessory or charger is connected when the multipurpose jack is not yet dry.
