There are not many smartphones around the globe that can survive being submerged in water for a period of 2 hours, but we have to keep on reminding ourselves that the Galaxy S7 is not an ordinary phone. Evidently, the IP68 certification came in quite handy, because according to Sammobile, one reddit user who goes by the name of aznprd shared some of the images of his sister’s Galaxy S7, which fell into a lake near Minneapolis in the US while canoeing.
The most appalling thing about this news is that they managed to recover the smartphone after searching for a total of 2 hours. The Galaxy S7 was working perfectly fine, which goes to show you that the smartphone is far more water-resistant than we were lead to believe. However, this still does not mean that you should head out and experiment the same scenario with your smartphone because you never know if your phone might recover or not.
According to Samsung, its Galaxy S7 is IP68 certified, which means that it can survive in water for a period of 30 minutes and at a height of 5 feet. Looks like this particular model defied all odds and still managed to stay functional. In light of this event, it’s advised that you invest in a waterproof bag and store your Galaxy S7, or any smartphone in it to prevent such an incident happening to you.
The Galaxy S7 is a very expensive smartphone, and if you’re not careful with your belongings, then you will pay dearly. Galaxy S7 is one of the most impressively crafted devices out there, and despite being thinner than the Galaxy S6, it packs a much large battery capacity than its predecessor, among other impressive hardware upgrades. No wonder the smartphone has been able to sell so well.
