    Hi there,
    It’s probably one of those features who are so expensive it may not even be worth to “genuinely” certify it, but it’s worth of mention that a water-resistant phone would have a MASSIVELY good reception from all those people that for example like to read their ebook on a beach.
    The IP68 grade gives you dust and water protections, up until a 1meter.

    What do you think about it?

    ps: the phone may surely benefit from the fact that it is built with waterproofing in mind, even if the certification is not “paid” and therefore genuine.

    I think this is impossible with a pop up camera…
    Or really expensive to developpe.

    Not even by using some sort of O-ring to seal the camera “block” when concealed?
    As said, having the phone certified ip68 would anyway cost too much for the project, so even something that just “helps” would be great.

    Water protection are very hard to achieve indeed. I think pop up camera will probably not help. We’ll see what we can do when we are more advanced in our discussion with ODM

    I remember that during iPhone 4/4S times there were some nano-coating applied onto the internals of your device, making it virtually waterproof.
    Something like that: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hiSTxKkqHTY
    May be that’s one possible way to go.

    That’s interesting. I didn’t knew of that way actually.
    It has not became mainstream yet though. Wonder why

    Alors je vais peut-être lever un point à la c… mais l’argument norme IP68 pour la résistance à l’eau pour un usage à la plage… je ne veux pas être trop tatillon, mais qui utilise son téléphone dans l’eau salée même étanche!!! À la piscine, je veux bien encore…
    L’étanchéité n’est-elle pas plus utile pour la baignoire, les jours de pluie ou à la rigueur les toilettes… et une norme plus simple, moins coûteuse, mais fonctionnelle ne serait-elle pas plus pratique ?
