So if you are planning to buy a new smartphone and are looking for the perfect phone that can survive the Holi fever, then you should look at the iPhone SE 3, which comes with IP67 dust and water protection. So, on Holi 2022, the most affordable way to go for a Holi-proof iPhone is the new iPhone SE -- for Android lovers, there's the Samsung Galaxy S20 Fe 5G that is available at an even cheaper price. Check out the details of iPhone SE 3 below to make up your mind on whether you want to invest in this waterproof phone smartphone or not.
The IP ratings were coined by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and are used to rate the resistance of an electronic device against liquids and dust. IP stands for Ingress Protection. In the code IP67, the number 6 represents protection from dirt, dust, and sand and the 7 indicates that the smartphone can survive immersion up to 1 meter for 30 minutes. The IP67 is a quite high level of protection offered by the iPhone SE 3. But do note that Apple does not claim that the smartphone is waterproof and states that liquid damage to the smartphone is not covered under the warranty.
