Rumors about Samsung’s upcoming flagship device are popping up more often from the past few days. We’ve seen several interesting details about the company’s upcoming flagship device which is rumored to see the light of the day in March at MWC 2015.
Previously, Samsung introduced IP67 certification with the Samsung Galaxy S5, which surprised many and allows the handset to be submerged in water for up to 30 minutes. According to a new report surfacing from Korean shores, things may change with the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.
A report from Korea suggests that Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 won’t come with IP certification, which means they will no longer be waterproof. The feature will be exclusive to the “Active” variant of the handset, which has been the case before the Galaxy S5.
You must be wondering why the company would do such a thing? Well, the Korean company had a rough 2014, and saw its profits decline by a great margin. Removing the waterproofing features will increase the margins of the company with a hope to turn things around. On the other hand, rumors suggest that the company is working on a new design for the handset, making it look more premium with a metal chassis.
It remains to be seen what the company has planned, so a grain of salt is required for this rumor. We’ll update you if we get to hear anything more about the alleged Samsung Galaxy S6.
