A Twitter user with the handle Bakul Bhandari has shared some images of his Samsung Galaxy S22 with vapors on the camera sensors. According to the user, the company has cheated the consumers by claiming that the smartphone comes with water resistance tech. IP68 certification means that the phone can be submerged in water for up to 30 minutes at a depth of 1.5 meters, but his phone gets damaged within 2minutes.

The tweet received a plethora of reactions where some people criticize him for not knowing the fact that “If your phone is hot and you wash it or dump it in cold water, there’s a very high chance of vapour formation.”

Samsung has acknowledged the issue by responding on the same thread saying, “We request you to share with us your contact details via direct message (DM) so that we can assist you further. Thanks! Send us a private message.”

There are several reactions for the users suggesting that the IP68 rating is just a gimmick to hike the price of the smartphone. IP68 is supposed to stop water or liquid from entering the phone but when you take your phone with such issues to service centers then they ask for repair charges saying liquid damage which is unfair on buyers who spend way too much money on a phone which is supposed to be water resistant.
