Samsung in trouble down under

ACCC or The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission are taking Samsung to court due to allegations of misleading customers about the abilities of various phones’ water resistance.

Samsung have been showing phones being used in near impossible situations since 2016 alleged the ACCC. Having no basis to make these assumptions.

ACCC Chair Rod Sims stated, “The ACCC alleges Samsung’s advertisements falsely and misleadingly represented Galaxy phones would be suitable for use in, or for exposure to, all types of water, including in ocean water and swimming pools, and would not be affected by such exposure to water for the life of the phone, when this was not the case,”

IP68 is the common resistance rate which means it can be submerged in water up to 1.5m for 30 minutes and Protection from contact with harmful dust. The ACCC, however are arguing that the Samsung have not proven the use of the handset in all waters, Samsung even stated themselves that it is not advisable to use the handset on the beach.
