Finally, Google has taken wraps off the much-awaited Pixel 2 and Pixel 2XL devices. Both the devices feature great hardware along with pure Android experience software upgrade by the power of Google. The camera on Pixel 2 is once again titled as the highest rated smartphone camera via DXOMark. In this article, we are going to talk about Google Pixel 2 Waterproof With IP67 Rating. Let’s begin!
The New thing to the 2017 Pixel devices is that there waterproof capabilities. Both the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2XL are water and dust resistant with an IP67 rating. This rating is actually below the industry standard (IP68) waterproof rating among flagship Android devices of Pixel’s stature. Samsung has the Galaxy Note 8 waterproof with an IP68 rating, Sony and LG also have flagship devices with the same IP68 rating. However, that is not much of an issue. IP67 rating has protected you from accidental drops into the water just like IP68 does.
Moreover, the difference between IP67 and the IP68 rating is that the devices that are rated IP67 can be submerged into the water for 30 minutes at depths of up to 1 meter. And IP68 devices can go underwater for 30 minutes and also at depth of up to 1.5 meters. As for dust resistance, both IP67 and IP68 rating provide the same dust resistant capabilities. Keep that in mind that Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2XL are the first smartphones from Google to have a waterproof build. Before this, neither the Pixel (2016) nor any of the Nexus devices featured waterproof build and design. Impressive!
Pixel and Pixel 2XL is waterproof with an IP67 rating, we do NOT recommend you to intentionally take your devices into the water. Never! If your device gets water damaged if the Liquid Damage Indicator on your Pixel or Pixel 2XL goes red. Then you won’t be getting a free repair or replacement under warranty from Google. So use the feature wisely.
