Is the LG K20 Plus Waterproof?

LG K20 Plus is not waterproof or water-resistant. It even doesn’t have a splash-resistant design.

Water Proof & Water Resistant phones are usually unibody and all the external ports have a flap to cover them. In contrast, K20 Plus has a removable battery door and all ports are exposed without any sort of covering. Thus, this kind of arrangement makes it prone to water damage.

LG K20 Plus lacks wireless charging. You can have wireless charging on K20 Plus using a 3rd party wireless charger. The wireless charging kit contains a wireless charging pad and a receiver based on the USB-Port Type. LG K20 & K20 Plus have Type-A micro USB Port.
