Samsung’s upcoming flagship, the Galaxy Note 10 is probably one of the most anticipated phones releasing in the second half of 2019. The Note 10 is rumored to have several ‘noteworthy’ features, apart from the obvious spec bump from the last generation the phone will feature a new quad-camera setup with a ToF (time-of-flight) sensor that will enable Live Focus (bokeh) video.
From all the rumors that have surfaced so far, we already know that the Note 10 is going to carry top of the line specs and it seems Samsung will add some additional features too to make the flagship stand apart from other devices in its price range.
In fact, a new leak, courtesy of reliable tipster Ishan Agarwal suggests that the Note 10 will be the first-ever smartphone to sport an IP69 certification making it the most water-resistant smartphone from Samsung.
Current flagships from leading manufacturers like Apple, Samsung, Huawei, etc. ship with either IP68 or IP67 certification. An IP67 certification means the phone, in addition to being dust-tight, can withstand water submersion for 30 minutes up to 1m of depth. Similarly, an IP68 certification means the phone can withstand water submersion for 30 minutes up-to 1.5m of depth while being dust-tight.
Though there isn’t much of a difference between IP67 and IP68, the IP69 rating is significantly better than both. An IP69 rated phone is dustproof and is resistant to high pressure, high-temperature jet sprays or steam cleaning procedures.
With the launch date coming closer, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 is, for sure, going to be one of the biggest Android releases of the year and we can’t wait.
