The new smartphones from the Samsung are water-resistant. The IP67 rating of the phones suggests that both of the phones are completely protected from dust and can easily survive being submerged into 1.5 meters deep water, though the waterproof seal of the phones is likely to be compromised if they come in contact with hot water for a long time.
