Samsung Galaxy S6 might not be waterproof after all

Several weeks ago, especially after finishing the CES in Las Vegas where it seems that Samsung would have shown its progress with the Galaxy S6, we have been reading leaks, rumors and daily analysis of the movements around the future star phone from the giant Korean corporation.

We have tried from the beginning to filter the most credible news, so here we bring you one that will most likely become true in the Samsung Galaxy S6 and its Edge variant -if it arrives-, and apparently the high end Samsung smartphone would lose its characteristic water resistance.

Rumors have it that it seems that Samsung has taken a step back after getting the IP67 certification for its Galaxy Mini S5 and S5, and the fact is that the production costs of the new Galaxy S6 would skyrocket looking for the water resistance, and with them the final price of the device.

However, and although the Active version of the Samsung Galaxy S5 existed a a testimony in the United States, it seems that this time there will be again an Galaxy S6 Active that this time will sure have a greater weight in the range, becoming the all-purpose version and keeping as exclusive the resistance characteristics added to the original Galaxy S6 hardware.

Nothing new under the sun, given the fact that Samsung will follow its previous strategy, but the good news is that it seems that Koreans are concerned about the final price of their devices and have noticed that the water resistance, finally, is not such a too differentiating aspect when choosing a smartphone.

It will not be as long now until the Mobile World Congress 2015, where at last Samsung will officially present its new flagship, so it is certain that the ‘murmur’ around the Galaxy S6 increases with each passing day.
