Does this picture prove that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is waterproof?
No version of the Galaxy Note has ever offered protection from water, so if Samsung has added this feature it would be a more than welcome addition to the line. So far, the only indication that the Galaxy Note 7 is waterproof comes from India's import-export tracker Zauba. Earlier this month, tape for the Galaxy Note 7's waterproof back glass was shipped into India from South Korea.
Today, a picture was discovered on Weibo that allegedly shows the Galaxy Note 7 getting cleaned up with soap and water. It does appear that the device in the picture has a dual curved edge display, although the soft focus and the soap prevents us from obtaining a "clean" look at the phone in the picture (no pun intended).
We will know for sure if the Galaxy Note 7 carries an IP68 certification rating on August 2nd. That is when the handset is expected to be unveiled during the next Samsung Unpacked event.
