The Realme is new to the smartphone market and is launching new smartphones every 6 months and so. Most of their devices are an absolute hit in the budget smartphone range and so far people are loving the Realme Brand. Now Realme might have decided to step up the game by introducing premium features like – waterdrop notch, quad camera and waterproof security in mid-range devices. Well, this is really good news for Realme fans since they will be the first to use a waterproof smartphone by Realme.

Is Realme 5 Pro Waterproof and Dustproof Device?

A waterproof smartphone is a kind of smartphone which can hold itself underwater for a long period of tie without getting any damage. Due to this, people can enjoy their time without worrying about water damage. Moreover, that, if your device is waterproof, you can enjoy many special features like underwater photography, listening to music in rain, etc.

All waterproof smartphone comes with special IP ratings. These IP Codes (or International Protection Rating, sometimes also interpreted as Ingress Protection Rating*) consists of the letters IP followed by two digits and an optional letter. It mainly tells us whether the device is splashproof or waterproof. Every officially waterproof smartphone has IP ratings which prove its waterproof features.
You will be extremely happy to know that the new Realme 5 Pro comes with official splashproof support. Which means you don’t need to worry about any accidental water splashes or coffee/juice spills. This is great news for Realme Fans.
The company adds further-“The airtight waterproof sealing protects all interior and exterior components, including the screen, back cover, and the buttons. The waterproof design has passed the Real Quality test.”

This shows that the new Realme 5 Pro has a splashproof design. However, we will test this to its extreme in our Realme 5 Pro waterproof test.

Waterproof & Dustproof Test

The official website does contain adequate information about splashproof capabilities. However, there is no mention of waterproof and dustproof capabilities of the devices. So we are going to conduct our own test. However don’t keep any high hopes, since it is a budget smartphone there are very fewer chances of it being a proper waterproof device.
