Samsung Galaxy S5 teaser trailer points to waterproof handset

The new Samsung Unpacked 5 teaser trailer points to the Samsung Galaxy S5 being a waterproof handset.

Not only does the teaser trailer officially confirm that the Unpacked 5 event will be for the Samsung Galaxy S5 launch, but it also confirms the device will be waterproof.

Although the Unpacked 5 teaser trailer is only just over 30-seconds long, it gives us some official teasers as to what features the Galaxy S5 will bring.

The trailer flashes through some words like “together”, “explorer”, “curiosity”, “peace” and “dad” – all with a little superscript number 5 – before pausing on the word “wet”.

Combine this rather telling feature teaser with the previous Galaxy S5 camera specs leak and you have pretty concrete evidence that the device will be waterproof.

We believe Samsung may go the way of Sony and make the Galaxy S5 waterproof and dustproof, mostly because of the focus on the word “outdoor”.

There’s also particular focus on the word “speed”, which hints to the fact the Galaxy S5 is heavily rumoured to be home to the new Samsung Exynos Infinity CPU with a 64-bit architecture.

Samsung also seems to be a specific focus on “life”, which occupies the majority of the final portion of the Unpacked 5 trailer.

“Find out more on Monday 24 February at the Samsung Unpacked event in Barcelona”, adds Samsung’s YouTube blurb.

Other rumoured specs for the Samsung Galaxy S5 include a 5.25-inch full HD resolution display and a 16-megapixel rear camera.

Samsung’s Unpacked 5 event is scheduled for 6pm BST on Monday February 24.
