A waterproof variant for the Galaxy S5?

We had heard a lot about the Galaxy S5 being unveiled at the ‘Unpacked Samsung 5’ event and now that this event is just around the corner, we are having tons of rumors, the newest one being about the launch of a waterproof S5. The rumor says that a separate waterproof variant will also be launched for the Galaxy S5 and this version will be sold to only 20 to 30 percent of the consumers of Galaxy S5.

This was only about the S5 but we are hearing that there will be other models of the Samsung portfolio which will have their own waterproof variants in this year. There is no evidence to support these rumors so far and all that has been speculated till now is backed by nothing. We also don’t have many leaks on the S5 as yet and it is being considered as the most ‘unleaked’ device. Though there haven’t been many leaks, Samsung has left a small loophole which we have caught; they have cancelled the order of around 5 million LDS antennas and in-mold antennas have been ordered in place of this. The LDS antennas cannot be waterproof since they are placed at the back of the phone and are usually very thin. The in mold antennas on the other hand are thicker and have the tendency to be made waterproof.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
