Samsung Galaxy S7 waterproof leak suggests rumours were true

If you’ve ever lost your phone to an accidental toilet dunking, we’ve got good news for you.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 looks increasingly likely to ship with a waterproof design.

Rumours have suggested that will be the case for a while, but a new leak almost assures it.

Listings have been posted online by Zauba – via Phone Arena – that seemingly reveal waterproof components destined for the Galaxy S7.

Zauba is an import-export tracking website that’s known in the tech industry for revealing details about upcoming devices.

The listings specifically mention “waterproof” components – like a SIM tray and microphone – for handsets with the model numbers SM-G930 and SM-G935.

Samsung’s naming conventions mean it’s almost certain those model numbers are assigned to the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.

Unfortunately, Samsung is keeping tight-lipped on the matter for now, so we’ve got no way of telling whether the devices will actually be waterproof until launch.

It’s worth noting however, that the Galaxy S5 was waterproof; the feature was only scrapped with last year’s Samsung flagships.

Samsung is expected to unveil the two handsets at Mobile World Congress, a technology tradeshow taking place at the end of February.
