Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge deep dive - is it really waterproof?


Been waiting a while? Get Flash to see this player.

Mark Notton, Head of Product Management, takes us on a tour of the new handset.

Picking the best smartphone at MWC 2016 is a tough ask, but we certainly wouldn't want to bet against Samsung's Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. The new handsets, showcased a couple of days' ago, feature a tweaked aesthetic, new processors, more RAM, a bigger battery, an always-on display, microSD support and, in keeping with the current trend, water and dust resistance.

Awesome devices, there's no doubt about that, but they aren't exactly cheap. A SIM-free Galaxy S7 will fetch £569 while the Galaxy S7 Edge (pictured) will start at a whopping £639.

Mull over those price tags for a while, but if you need convincing, and you want to see the handset's water-resistance put to the test, tune-in to the video at the top of the page to see the S7 Edge in action.

Cool demo
so a water-cooled CPU on a phone?
I'm awaiting water damage claims ;)

Not equivalent to what you'd call water-cooling on a PC. More like a heatpipe, as seen in laptops, tablets and some other phones.
I can imagine some people trying to overclock it, and run some benchmark in ice cold water!
