    Without checking the specs, I don’t know. I’d guess that they all are.

    S7+, S8, S9, Note 9 - with checking specs. Resistant, not proof. That means if some water gets sprinkled on the phone, you're okay. If you take it swimming in even 2 feet of water, or take it into the shower, you'll probably ruin it. They're resistant to at least 1.46 pounds of water pressure (IP67 means they're resistant to 1.46 psi, IP68 means "at least as great as IP67), but upending an 8 ounce glass of water over the phone causes more pressure than that, so you're on your own.

    Treat water resistance as "just in case", not as in "I like music in the shower" or "I want to take underwater pictures", (Even the steam in the bathroom will get into the phone - it's not humid-air-resistant - and when it cools off, that steam and humidity turns into water inside the phone, which leads to failure of components, which leads to a new phone being cheaper than "repairing" the old one. (You can't really repair it - you can save any non-metallic parts and replace any with any metal in them.)
