Confirmed: Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy A lineup will be water resistant
Samsung is expected to take the wraps off its new 2017 lineup of Galaxy A smartphones soon, most likely at CES 2017.
We have previously reported that the smartphones might come with an IP68 rating, which means that they will be both dust and water resistant and will, therefore, be able to survive under water (up to 5 feet/1.5 meters) for 30 minutes. We are now happy to report that the rumor has been confirmed.
Samsung Malaysia has uploaded an image on Facebook teasing the launch of the devices and letting us know that they will be water resistant. The Galaxy A lineup will probably consist of the Galaxy A3, A5, A7, and A9, but we still don’t know if the South Korean giant will announce all the devices at once.
Yesterday, press renders of one of the devices, the Galaxy A5, along with the specs have leaked. We already know how the device looks and what it will offer specs-wise. Other Galaxy A smartphones will probably look more or less identical to the A5 but will offer different hardware.
Are you happy to hear that upcoming Samsung’s Galaxy A lineup will be water-resistant? Let us know down below.
As a reminder, CES 2017 kicks off January 5 in Las Vegas. Android Authority will be on the floor bringing you all the details, so stay tuned for more information about the Galaxy A line.
