Samsung has released a video and a blog about the IP67-certified water and dust resistance of the company’s brand new devices – A52 and A72 (5G versions included).
Samsung marks the feature as an extra ”Peace of Mind” when it comes to day-to-day usage. They ensured that from the beginning of the production stage of the newest A-Series lineup, water and dust resistance testing had been maintained for full functionality of the devices.
The best thing about Samsung is that it cares for the environment and ecosystem that we live currently on and thus focuses on what is needed and what is essential to keep that going on smoothly without any hurdles or irritations. That is why people support Samsung in their journey of improving smartphones with water and dust resistance.
Water and Dust are the two most dangerous enemies of a smartphone. Without the much important protection, the smartphone will be shut down by coming into direct contact with water of any sort or source; sometimes, even a mere splash of water will do the magic. And the user of the smartphone will shout at the manufacturer. The same thing goes with dust, as it just engulfs the lenses of the cameras and makes the images taken auto affected by the Dust Effect. Eh, being sarcastic will not work when you find out that they have either put a permanent hole in there or scratches even after cleaning those dust.
Here is the video and the questions attempted to answer below:
IP67-Certified Water and Dust Resistance
Galaxy A52 and A72 are IP67-certified. The “6” in IP67 is mentioned to denoted dust-resistance capability, which is about 50㎛ here. The “7” in return indicates water resistance for 30 minutes at a depth of one meter.
The certification comes from TÜV Rheinland, which is a renowned certification company older than 150 years. The process follows:
“To tell you the logic behind delivering an IP6X grade – You dig a 6π hole in a certain depth in the back of a smartphone, to which you connect a hose to artificially put dust inside and see if any dust falls out of the device by the finishing of the process.
Similarly, for IPX7, one has to put the mobile in a 1-meter deep water tank for 30 minutes and see if it still functions properly back on the above. You also disassemble the device to see if it has been jammed.
We go through a test to ensure dust and water resistance at low and high temperatures. First, we test the smartphone at harsh steps at low and high temperatures for 72 hours. After 3 days, we put the phone into a one-meter deep water tank and check if any problem appeared. We aim to test the dust and water resistance of our device through such intense procedures so that users will face no problems in their daily usage.”Samsung Mobile Press
Water and Dust Resistance
The devices have been made water and dust-resistant using a membrane thing similar to outdoor gear and clothing. The membrane material lets air pass through but stops water.
Likewise, the front display also has tiny vacuums filled with Samsung’s remarkable technologies to provide complete water and dust resistance experience.
Last Words for the Users from Samsung
The new Galaxy A devices have four-camera setups and one LED lens, adding five additional points to cover dust and water resistance. Naturally, we had to put in huge efforts from the starting design stage. Many developers put their brains together to introduce new parts and applications, evaluate the structural design, make more testing and assembling equipment, etc., to produce the only refined design of the Galaxy A Series with dust and water resistance. I hope you will enjoy your Galaxy A Series freely.
