Next iPhone & Samsung Smartphone To Be Waterproof?

As per rough estimate up to a million phones are water-damaged every year worldwide. And these damages cannot be taken lightly by industry leaders of smartphones – Apple and Samsung. Probably maximum number of their phones must be getting water damaged as they are the major suppliers of phones in the world.

Both Apple and Samsung are reportedly interested in a new hi-tech spray that makes smartphones waterproof – and Apple could even include the coating in its upcoming iPhone 5, rumoured to be due this summer.

The new ‘nanotech’ spray coating  is applied to the circuitry inside phones and even if the phones are  entirely underwater, they can still take calls.

In demonstrations a working iPhone and Samsung Galaxy were dropped  into a bowl of water – and were still working even below the surface. “We showed the Samsung Chairman the technology with a Samsung Galaxy S that we had coated with HZO and he couldn’t believe his eyes”, a company spokesman told tech website Pocket-Lint, “Samsung is really excited by the technology”.

The company claims to be in talks with Apple about including the technology in iPhone 5.

HzO uses a unique coating processes to shield almost anything from water and corrosion damage. The electronic components inside the device are coated to provide protection, leaving the device unencumbered and always guarded against unexpected accidents.

Even if Apple and Samsung don’t sign up officially, part of the company, Zagg, is to incorporate the HZO coating into custom iPhones next year, and offer pre-treated phones for sale.

This is good news especially for Britishers as fifty-two per cent of UK smartphone users have water-damage their phones by dropping them down the toilet!
