When Samsung lifted the lid on the Galaxy S6 Edge, we learned that it was no longer IP-certified, meaning it was no longer water proof. It seems, however, that the device is water-resistant, as the device survives being dunked in water for around 25 minutes in a new water test.
Hit play below to watch the water test conducted by YouTube TechSmartt.
The video shows that the Galaxy S6 Edge keeps on ticking for around 25 minutes of being submerged in a bowl of water. For reference, the iPhone 6 dies after being submerged in water for a few minutes. After more than 20 minutes, however, it starts to act up. It does power up after being charged, it does start to act strange. This means that it will survive the occasional drops in the toilet, spills, and you may be able to use it under a few minutes of rain.
If you’re unfamiliar with the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, it sports a 5-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD) and a pixel density of 577 ppi, a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera with optical image stabilisation (OIS) made by Sony, a 5-megapixel front-facing selfie-centric camera, 32/64/128 GB of internal storage, Samsung’s Exynos 7420 64-bit octa-core processor with four cores clocked at 2.1 GHz and four cores clocked at 1.5 GHz, 3 GB of DDR4 RAM, LTE Cat.6 (300/50Mbps) connectivity, support for wireless charging, and a 2,600 mAh battery. The S6 Edge measures 142.1 x 70.1 x 7.0 mm and weighs in at 132 g. It runs Android 5.0 (Lollipop) out of the box with a 64-bit TouchWiz UI slapped on top.
