Galaxy S6 And S6 Edge Won’t Be Water Resistant

By 05:59 Fri, 23 Jul 2021 Comments

In an apparent attempt to increase its profit margins, Samsung is reportedly doing away with the Internet Protocol (IP) certification from the non-Active models of its upcoming flagship, the Galaxy S6. This, in layman's terms, means that the device, as well as its all but officially confirmed cousin, the Galaxy S6 Edge, will not be water resistant.

It is worth noting that the South Korean company’s previous flagship, the Galaxy S5, which the company launched last year, came with IP67 certification, which officially means "dust tight" and surviving up to 30 minutes at 1m underwater.

The alleged move, though disappointing, isn’t exactly surprising given that Samsung had a rough last year with S5 sales falling short of expectations, and the company reporting its lowest profits in more than two years.
