Are the Realme C67 5G and C67 4G Waterproof? The Short Answer

Realme’s newest budget C series phones – the C67 5G and C67 4G – come packed with features, including IP ratings. But are they truly waterproof? The short answer is no. While they have IP54 dust and water resistance ratings, they cannot withstand being fully submerged in water. Here’s what that IP54 rating really means.

What Does the IP54 Rating Actually Mean?

The IP (Ingress Protection) code indicates how well a device is protected against solid particles like dust (first digit) and liquids like water (second digit). A higher number means better protection.

For the Realme C67 5G and C67 4G, the 5 means they are properly protected against dust ingress. However, the 4 for liquid protection only covers protection from water splashes – not full immersion.

So while rain or spills won’t damage these phones, you can’t take them for a swim. Submerging them could lead to water damage and malfunction.

Affordable Phones with Splash Protection

While not waterproof, the IP54 rating does provide the C67 series with basic protection against the everyday splashes and spills we all encounter. It’s an impressive feature for phones designed to be ultra affordable 5G and 4G options.

So in summary – the Realme C67 5G and C67 4G have dust and splash resistance thanks to their IP54 ratings, but aren’t designed to be fully waterproof devices. Keep them away from the pool, but don’t worry about a little rain!

The IP Rating System Explained IP stands for “Ingress Protection” and the ratings measure how well a device is protected against solid particles like dust (first digit) and liquids like water (second digit).

For the C67 series, the 5 means they have adequate protection against dust ingress. The 4 for liquid protection covers only splashes of water – not full submersion.

How Water Resistance Works Water resistance is achieved through gaskets, seals, and membranes that prevent water from entering key components like the charging port, speakers, and internals.

However, water resistance is not waterproofing. At the IP54 level, the C67 phones can likely withstand light rain and splashes but any pressure from being submerged could allow water to seep through those gaskets.

The Science of Waterproofing To be fully waterproof, a device needs an IP rating of IP67 or higher. IP67 means the device is completely dust-tight and can withstand being submerged in 1 meter of water for 30 minutes.
