Water and dust resistance has been a feature on Samsung’s flagship phones for a long time. Back in 2017, Samsung also brought water and dust resistance to its mid-range A series, but that was short-lived and we didn’t see any mid-range phones from the Korean giant with an IP rating all the way until this year.

We’re talking about the Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A72: Both phones feature an IP67 rating that sets them apart from the competition in the heavily congested mid-range segment. And rumor has it that next year, Samsung will be bringing water and dust resistance further down the ladder in the A series, a rumor that we can now confirm.

Galaxy A33 will handle the rain like a champ

According to our sources, the Galaxy A33 will be water and dust resistant. It will be IP67 certified like the Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A72, which means it will be able to survive submersion in up to 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes and will be completely protected from dust. IP67 isn’t as good as the IP68 rating on Samsung’s flagships on paper, but practically, it’s all anyone needs.

Of course, whether or not an IP rating is something people will want over a headphone jack remains to be seen. Yes, the A33 is expected to lack a 3.5mm port, which could disappoint many potential buyers. Unfortunately, it seems the headphone jack will go missing on a lot of mid-range Galaxy phones next year, so the Galaxy A33 won’t stand alone in this regard.
