  • Is Samsung Galaxy A50 Waterproof?

    P

    Answered By Pushpanjali Sandeep | 1 years ago

    Definitely, Samsung Galaxy A50 is not waterproof. Though it has a non-removable back cover, still it is not waterproof. It may sustain a few splashes of water, but it will not withstand a drop in water. IP67 or IP68 certification is not very easy to attain. All the ports, SIM stray, and speakers need to be water proof and ensure no water penetrates. You need to be careful while using your phone,if it drops in water, you definitely need to get a new one.

  • Does Samsung Galaxy A50 support OTG?

    P

    Answered By Priyanka Gupta | 1 years ago

    Yes, Samsung Galaxy A50 supports OTG. USB OTG or USB On-The-Go is one of the most recent technologies that allows you to connect your pen drives and in some cases hard disks to your smartphones and tablets. It has a cable and through that cable, you can directly view and use your pen drive in your smartphones.
