This seems like an appropriate story to share right after the earlier one about water bouncing metals. According to the latest rumor, Samsung's Galaxy S6 might not have one of the best features found on the Galaxy S5: water-proofing.
If true, this would be a strange back-step for any manufacturer to undertake. Typically when we see a new flagship smartphone hit the market, it will include all of the best features of the previous generation, plus some new ones. That equation doesn't usually include subtracting useful features.
While, one could argue that people get along just fine without water-resistant smartphones, it could also be argued that there is no reason why smartphones should not evolve to include this feature as a given. This is especially true considering how expensive they can be.
Not all hope is lost, however. According to the report, Samsung will still release a version of the Galaxy S6 which will have water-proofing. Perhaps they are going to go back to their previous tactic of offering an "Active" version of the Galaxy S flagship. What do you think of this development if it turns out to be true?
