Samsung has basically confirmed that the Galaxy S7 will be waterproof

The official launch of the Samsung Galaxy S7 is only a few days away but Samsung’s Indonesian website has already begun teasing the device and its features. What’s more, it comes with a video!

Do we actually have the Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 edge on video for the first time ever? Well, yes and we think a little bit of no.

If you’ve been paying attention to our trickle of information sourced from reputable leaksters and renders, you would have known some of (if not most of) the purported specs that are said to adorn Samsung’s upcoming flagship. If you haven’t, what are you waiting for, go get caught up!

While the microsite does reveal some features, what is more interesting is the video that they’ve included in the microsite.

Samsung Galaxy: Get Ready for #TheNextGalaxy Success, not only achieved with talent but also with hardwork and the right partner to bring you to a higher level. #TheNextGalaxy

So, is that an S7/S7 edge or is that a Galaxy S6 Edge+ in disguise? There’s no denying that the upcoming S7 looks almost identical to that of the existing Galaxy S6 series (thanks to leaks and renders), but the phone in this ad looks too identical, right down to the camera hump that the S7 is not supposed to have.

But, we can’t completely dismiss the fact that this could be an S7 either because of that one scene in the rain. Sure, if you’ve ever spilt some water on a Galaxy S6 Edge+, you would have noticed that it doesn’t die immediately (do not try this at Home), but we doubt it’s something Sammy would advertise so openly.

So, actual S7 hype? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

Anyway, if you head on over to the microsite, you’ll be greeted with four separate images, each of which looks like it’s showing off one of the S7’s key features.

The first of which looks like an emphasis on security and privacy. What we can deduce from this is that the upcoming S7 will have an improved form of biometric security — most likely a better fingerprint scanner. Though, there have been rumours floating around that the S7 could have an iris scanner.

An improved fingerprint sensor seems like a safer bet though as even the new Galaxy A 2016 series is supposed to have an improved fingerprint scanner over the existing Galaxy S6.

This one, we’re not too sure. Maybe it’s something about the design or curves or build. It’s a toss up at this point, so go ahead and let us know what you think this slide is trying to say.

Couldn’t they have come up with a better word than “worry-less”? In any case, with the huge water droplets being the big hint, it looks like the they’re boasting some kind of water resistance that should be able to resist splash and rain.

Finally, we have this, a sexy little macro shot of what looks like the S7’s 12-megapixel camera. This unit is supposed to come with Samsung’s latest BRITECELL camera tech that not only boasts a better low light performance (as is hinted in this picture) but also that it would significantly reduce the smartphone’s camera hump.
