Galaxy S7 Active waterproofing issue got fixed
Samsung has reportedly resolved a flaw in its production line due to which some Galaxy S7 Active smartphones failed to qualify as water-resistant devices in recent immersion tests.
The company claims that the phone is IP68 certified – meaning it would not get damaged if it was immersed in up to 5ft of water for up to half an hour.
The South Korean firm did not provide any details on the number of devices affected, but said it received "very few complaints" of phones being damaged when immersed in water.
"We discovered an isolated issue to a production line that exclusively manufacturers the Galaxy S7 Active.
The issue has been resolved.
