Surprisingly, it would appear that Samsung is reverting to its old practices. A report out of Korea on Tuesday says that neither the Samsung Galaxy S6 nor the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge will be water resistant. The report adds that such a feature will be exclusive to the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active.
According to those familiar with Sammy's thinking, the company is removing the IP certification from the non-Active Galaxy S6 models in order to increase its profit margins on the phone. Samsung had a rough 2014 and is hoping to turn things around. In addition, by not making the Samsung Galaxy S6 water resistant, it hopes to focus on other features including the new metal chassis.
Thanks for the tip!
