Import listings reconfirm water-resistance on the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge


Last updated: February 9th, 2016 at 10:23 UTC+02:00

The return of water-resistance to the Galaxy S line has been looking more and more certain with all the leaks and rumors around the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, and we’re now getting a confirmation that the feature is indeed part of the S7 duo. Over on the import tracking site Zauba are listed several waterproof components for the SM-G930 and SM-G935, which are the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge as we have known for a long time.

Numerous waterproof components, such as a waterproof mic and SIM tray, are mentioned for the Galaxy S7, and something called a waterproof tape for the Galaxy S7 edge. These were all imported to India at the end of January and around early February for testing, and it’s likely these components will be used in the retail units that are expected to go on sale in the first half of March. Of course, do keep in mind that these devices will simply be water-resistant and not fully waterproof, so taking them along with a swim is something that Samsung is not likely to recommend (though they should be water-resistant enough to be used underwater for a photo or two.)

In case you missed it, we also got our first live look at the Galaxy S7 from the front, side and the back yesterday. We’re expecting a lot from the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, and it looks like resistance to one of the elements is sure to be among the allures of Samsung’s next big things.
