Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 3 to get the waterproof ‘Active’ treatment
To the surprise of nobody, Samsung is rumored to introduce waterproof versions of its current Galaxy Note 3 and presumed Galaxy S5 smartphones. According to ETNews, Samsung has been very impressed with the sales and feedback for the Galaxy S4 Active and are working to introduce semi-rugged and water resistant variants for future flagships.
Look, we’re all for Samsung throwing its weight around and releasing a wide variety of device options, but we get the sense they could be smarter. Why not just make all versions of their iconic models waterproof like Sony and call it a day? It would be one more feather in the cap and could further differentiate from Apple and others. Sony doesn’t have a strong U.S. presence yet so we might assume it’s Samsung’s race to lose.
