I think ALL FlagShips SHOULD be waterproof. But of course the companys want their $, and release a waterproof and a regular.

No, that's just O2's way of advertising.

My brother, who lives on Germany, translated everything that O2 says about the phone and according to him what they say is that Samsung is going to sell more than one version and 1 of them is going to be water proof... Not all are going to be water proof...

The only thing that maybe new is that he said that the phone will come with the option of plastic body or metal body. But he did not told me if that was only for the "outdoor" model or both the regular and the outdoor model.

Okay, now this is getting interesting... but what's with the English?

"Surely you already current Samsung smartphones at top prices"

Huh?

That's Google's automatic tranlsation, since the webpage is in German. We added a snapshot of the original page, too.

Image does give an idea of a water proof phone... or may be its their way of promotion

Not really as the water & bubbles are the logo of O2 so no guarantee it will be waterproof.

Um there's a massive wave of air bubbles released upon a "Samsung 5" device splashing full into deep water, what is it suggesting if not a waterproof phone? Ideas how to destroy your €600 flaghship? lol

Better this all-in-one device than releasing an S5 and an S5 active.

True. Just make it metal, waterproof, top specs, light on bloat and Samsung's HW advantage will make it a winner. Pointless to make many variants when we want all in one.

Sorry... Will be 2 versions. One regular and one "outdoors" which is the water proof one. But they will be available in plastic and with an optional metal body.

Nice to see other phones than Sony getting water proofed. Well if this is even going to be water proof.

It's not waterproof. O2's corporate identity is oddly things floating in water.

But the google search you posted showed not a single device inside water like in this article...

I think Samsung is going to try and tackle Sony this year with a regular S5 that is also waterproof...

The reason the S4 Active did not do so well relatively speaking, was because the specs where more like S3...

So they should make a single S5 device that can compete with Z1 / Sirius, for that matter...

"The reason the S4 Active did not do so well relatively speaking, was because the specs where more like S3..."

Not even close. They have the same processor clocked to the same speed, same screen resolution, same screen size, & same amount of RAM. The only thing that was downgraded was the camera. It went down from 13MP to 8. So no, the Active was not more in line with the S3.
