Samsung Next Galaxy Note to be Waterproof
Samsung is prepping the launch of its biggest category phone of the year, the Galaxy Note. While previous rumors have indicated that the company will drop the Note 6 moniker in order to align the naming and simply call this year’s Note the Note 7, a new insider tip may come as an interesting fact.
Our Samsung insider, claims that the next Galaxy Note (named Note 7) will, in fact, be as waterproof as the Galaxy S7 launched earlier this year. The Note 7 will come with IP68 certification which guarantees a device to be waterproof up to 30 minutes or 1.5 meters under water minimum. Our insider also notes that the Note 7 may launch as early as end July or first week of August.
The Galaxy Note 7 will apparently measure 153.5 x 73.9 x 7.9 mm and will also be available in an Edge variant which will replace the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus for 2016. Previous renders have also shown off that the phone will have a USB Type-C port.
Samsung will continue to leave all the ports open just like in the case of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge which are also waterproof. Interestingly The new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will continue to have a 3.5mm headphone jack, despite that fact that the smartphone will supports Digital lossless audio via the Type C port.
