I have seen this notification often when the battery cover is opened or the charging port cover is opened.
Now this notification just disappears and there is actually nothing that checks if the phone is ready to be immersed in water or am I wrong?
I am really excited to take my phone into the shower or the pool but don't want to risk water damage. How can you even prove that it was a user error or defective product?
Samsung should have made sensors to detect if the covers are shut.

When I see the commercial with the men in the shower with the phone my first reaction was finally Shower porno Why did you need sensors for this though ? And don`t think that this water resistance is actually a feature that will be often used.

Be glad you got rid of those annoying pop ups! As long as everything is sealed tight you will be fine to get the phone wet. The stupid pop ups add nothing IMHO

I'm pretty sure those warnings were not meant to say "OK, everything's closed, last one in the pool..."

I donīt think thereīs a sensor for the notifications. The back one seems to pop up whenever you restart the phone, and the bottom flap one whenever you disconnect the charger.

A guide I did to remove those notifications.
Plus not sure on your phones, but on the Sprint variant, if these are still enabled we get a quick screen flash right after a reboot and screen unlocks as the Battery Cover toast pops up for a millisecond.
