Samsung to have a variant of the Galaxy S6 without water resistance

Samsung Galaxy Tab 5

The Samsung Galaxy S6 is expected to launch in under two months. While it’s understood that the device will be available in a water resistant model like last year’s Galaxy S5, a new rumor now suggests that this year, there will be a regular variant of the Galaxy S6 without water resistance on board.

While it seems like a downgrade to remove the water resistance feature, it would result in the phone not having a lot of unnecessary flaps. The smartphone is expected to be announced on the 2nd of March, which is just a day after the HTC One M9 is expected to go live.

It is possible that Samsung will probably look to launch an “Active” version of the flagship much like it did with the Galaxy S4 Active and the Galaxy S5 Sport over the past two years, so we wouldn’t put it past them to come up with something like that this year.
