Many people had plenty of complaints about last year’s Galaxy S6. What happened to improving the battery life? Where’s the SD expansion card slot? Why isn’t this phone waterproof anymore? With the Samsung Galaxy S7 set to make its debut later this month, several of these concerns could finally be addressed. In particularly, we’ve now received “confirmation” that the Galaxy S7 will have IP68 waterproof certification.

I put the word “confirmation” in quotes there, because there isn’t anything officially official from Samsung yet. At the same time, the Galaxy S7 is probably one of the company’s worst-kept secrets and it doesn’t help when they’re leaking out information on their own. A prime example of this is an unlisted video on YouTube, uploaded by Samsung Indonesia.

In the promotional video, embedded here, we see what appears to be a Galaxy S7 edge being used in the pouring rain. This gives us a very strong impression that the S7 edge (and likely also the regular S7) will come with IP68 waterproof certification, or possibly IP67 certification.

Along with the video, Samsung has been pushing out several promotional images for the next Galaxy smartphone, including this shot of “worry-less discovery.” It looks like the phone has water droplets cascading down its display, further leading us to believe that waterproof protection is in the books.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Confirmed IP68 Waterproof

Many of the Galaxy S7 rumors look like they’re holding weight. Leaked images and info are pointing toward a 12MP camera on the back, a 2800mAh internal battery, and a microSD expansion slot. Curiously, it looks like it might not get a USB Type-C port after all. In any case, MWC isn’t far away and this worst-kept secret will soon be out in the open… and in the rain.
