Samsung teaser confirms Galaxy S7 will be water-resistant
Just in case you weren’t already incredibly excited for the Galaxy S7, Samsung has released a new teaser video ahead of the handset’s official unveiling that confirms one major upgrade: A water-resistant design.
Samsung made the Galaxy S5 water-resistant back in 2014, but it didn’t carry that feature over to last year’s Galaxy S6 — probably because the major redesign made it difficult. But Samsung has rectified this for the Galaxy S7.
In the teaser video below, which promises “this is the next level,” Samsung shows off that water-resistant design in a rainy forest. It also confirms the return of S Health (obviously), and built-in wireless charging that doesn’t require special cases.
The video also confirms the Galaxy S7 edge will look almost identical to the Galaxy S6 edge, only larger. There are some subtle design changes to look forward to — and, of course, the bigger screen — but they’re certainly not obvious in this clip.
Samsung will announce the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge on February 21 at Mobile World Congress. In addition to these new features, the devices are expected to bring all-new internals, and a pressure-sensitive display. They are also expected to be more affordable.
