The Samsung Galaxy S7 rumour factory is pumping all sort of goodies and the latest slice of news to hit us suggests that it’ll be more than capable of taking a dip or two.
Serial tipster Eldar Murazin has revealed that the Galaxy S7 (and the Galaxy S7 Edge) will be IP68-rated. In other words, they’ll be as water and dust resistant as other identically rated handsets like the Sony Xperia Z5.
It means the Galaxy S7 should be able to survive full submersion in at least one meter of water, for at least thirty minutes. If the leaked renders are accurate, these new water-resistant powers won’t result in any extra ugliness of bulk either.
Murtazin goes on to state that the Galaxy S7 will also have a reinforced frame, allowing it to meet pavements with a little more confidence during unexpected acts of gravity.
Full details will be revealed on 21 February, when Samsung’s Unpacked 2016 event and it will take place in Barcelona.
