Galaxy Note 6 tipped to be waterproof

Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note 6 is tipped to follow in the footsteps of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge by being waterproof.

Samsung is expected to release a new phablet, the Galaxy Note 6, this year and the latest rumour is that it will be waterproof.

It's being reported that the Galaxy Note 6 will feature an IP68-rated design, meaning you'll be able to submerge it in up to 1.5m of water for half an hour. Samsung's Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge brought waterproof technology back to the Galaxy range, so it wouldn't be too surprising to see the Note 6 follow suit.

Meanwhile, a Samsung fansite spotted that the company is importing new "iris camera" modules into India for research and development. It's as yet unclear if this eye-scanning technology will make its way into the Galaxy Note 6.

Other rumours indicate that the Galaxy Note 6 will feature a 5.8-inch display, a whopping 6GB RAM, and run Android 7.0 N.
