The Galaxy Samsung S3 is just around the corner. Probably that’s why rumors related to its booklet and to all the features that this device may carry on, have not stopped ringing. Samsung has already announced that the successor of the Samsung Galaxy S2 will not be present at the Mobile World Congress this year, so you will not see it February.
The Korean Company has plans to present their new flagship smartphone in a separate event. Meanwhile, rumors say that a new feature might be added to the list of advantages of the new Samsung Galaxy S3 – water resistance. It seems that the new smartphone will have a special coverage in order to protect it from any accidental immersion or occasionally splash. But what is really true in all of this?
The truth is that at this point, the Korean company has not submitted any provisional sheet, so we will have to wait a bit until Samsung decides to finally make the official move. However, an anonymous tipster just dropped some information to a small UK retailer that the next flagship of Samsung will be waterproof. According to this person, which of course has not been identified, the new Samsung Galaxy S3 will have a special nanocoating that does not allow penetration of water and that, therefore, automatically converts the device in an apparatus resistant to this element. As explained by the same source, the technology adopted by Samsung would be developed by a California based company called Liquipel, owner and expert in water resistant materials.
Another device that could also use this new technology is the iPhone 5, the future smartphone that Apple plans to bring out next. In fact, a few weeks ago, a company called HZO presented at CES (Consumer Electronic Show), 2012, the benefits of water block technology that prevents accidental entry of dust and liquid terminals. This is a thin invisible layer that joins the terminal through a process in a vacuum chamber whose task is to repel liquids. The HzO Company said that many companies engaged in the manufacture of mobile phones are interested in applying it to their terminals. In fact, at that time there was speculation about the interest that Apple has placed on this technology, which suggests a possible integration into the next iPhone 5.
