“Waterproof” components for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge have appeared online, strongly suggesting that the upcoming smartphones will at least be water resistant.
The parts, seen on import-export tracking website Zauba, show a series of pieces originating from South Korea for mobile phones ‘for captive consumption’. Model numbers SM-G930 and SM-G935 have been associated with the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge in the past, and they’re both listed in the document.
Rumors of a waterproof or water resistant Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge have been doing the rounds online for months and this latest finding has added fuel to the flames. It seems that a clearer picture of the design and specs of the two devices is slowly coming together as their unveiling draws closer.
Among the waterproof parts on Zauba are a SIM tray, microphone and gasket tape. A source claiming to be a Samsung employee last month shared some information with Phone Arena and VentureBeat also suggesting that the Galaxy S7 will be dust and waterproof.
Just recently, an image arriving courtesy of Vietnamese website Review Dao was said to show the Samsung Galaxy S7 in the flesh. The smartphone looks fairly familiar when compared to other leaks spotted in the past and also features the recognizable camera setup.
Meanwhile, a leaked picture from the FCC suggests that the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge will arrive with a mighty 3,600 mAh battery. Multiple sources suggest that the Galaxy S7 will carry a 3,000 mAh battery.
MWC 2016 is fast approaching and we’re expecting Samsung to finally lift the lid on its highly anticipated devices once and for all. There’s no official word on waterproofing for the S7 and S7 Edge at the time of writing, but if Samsung were to include the feature it’d undoubtedly put smiles on plenty of faces.
