Galaxy S7 edge gets dunked in a pool, records a video to tell about it

The Galaxy S7 and S7 edge are both IP68-certified, meaning that they can withstand being underwater like an adjustable-rate mortgage for a substantial amount of time. Samsung says up to half an hour and in up to five feet of the liquid, and we were sure it won't be long before someone takes a Galaxy S7 edge and puts these claims to the test. 

The first units of the S7 and S7 edge are already in the hands of those who preordered, way ahead of the official 3/11 launch date, so people have started to do all sorts of things with them, and one of the initial tests is of the waterproofing claims, of course. Not only can we see that the new Galaxies will survive in water as advertised, but the S7 edge has recorded a really nice underwater footage in the pool test, too, the quality of which you can see in the vid above.
