Re: leaks
I think the S5 was "water resistant" but the S6 as the first sealed phone was water proof. In any case, regardless of the phone, I don't want to be in a position to test this out!

Re: leaks
I agree. This is news for me too. I thought it was only "SONY" who had the water proof facility.

Re: leaks
I don't know if the leak was planned or not, but my take is, the more people know about an upcoming phone, the better. It creates expectations, interest, doesn't it?

@makk63 I agree with your opinion. In my point of view leaking those capabilities which are unique definitely pay dividends for the company as customers start expecting some thing out of the blue from the brand but many a times small unknown brands come up with the copies of the capability faster then the actual brand and try to get maximum benifit out of it. I am not sure water resistance is that capability which is very unique and cannot be replicated. What do you say?

Re: leaks

@Mak63 What do you think that leakage of its water resistant capability at this time before its launch can be planned. What kind of beneifits it can get with this kind of leakage if its planned?

I thought that the S6 was the first "waterproof" model from Samsung.
That's news for me. I always thought that the S5 was the waterproof one.

Re: leaks
I thought that the S6 was the first "waterproof" model from Samsung. I would settle for "water-resistant" just to be safe otherwise i never had any water issues with any phone. You just have to keep it covered or put a good case on it. And I also have not heard anything else about other features on the phone.

We're so close from the date when Samsung will unveiled the S7, that I'm surprised that only the water resistant feature is leaked.
