By MEHER ONISA : 17-Jan-2017
Apple’s latest iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, and iPhone 8 series features IP67 rating making the device resistant to 1.5 meters of water for up to 30 minutes.
Apple iPhone is celebrating it’s the 10th anniversary this year. The company plans to launch its next iteration of flagship smartphone with novel features.
The IP68 rating would make the glass sandwich designed stainless steel framed anniversary edition of iPhone 8 resistant to 1.5 meters of water for 30 minutes.
However, the company doesn’t recommend its customers to deliberately drop the device into water because liquid damage isn’t shield covered the warranty. The higher IP rating will enable the device to sustain under the rain.
The iPhone 7 Plus will showcase an OLED display minus the physical home button.
The water and dust resistance capabilities will simultaneously be scaled in Samsung’s next Galaxy S8 smartphone.
The iPhone 8 and Galaxy S8 are the premium smartphones expected to lick the limelight to attract media attention.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 with unique technical traits and IP68 ranking will have A series smartphones including A3, A5, and A7.
Samsung is proactively looking for the environmental protection in its J series. The other manufacturers including LG are also joining the herd which is widely expected to launch its G6 waterproof.
