The iPhone 4S was one of the most wanted headsets last year and reportedly this year as well. But, even for the iPhone 4S with all of its brilliant features, the competition to dominate the market was tough. Apple’s iPhone 4S’ toughest rival came in the form of Samsung Galaxy SII. The two very successful handsets became so famous, that rumors regarding new updates for the phones and about their successors started appearing in the Internet very soon after their launch.
There is a saying that there won’t be any smoke unless there is fire. There will be some truth behind most rumors. The rumored appearance of iPhone 5 and Galaxy SIII – the successors of iPhone 4S and Galaxy SII respectively, have been confirmed, although they haven’t been officially unveiled yet. The iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy SIII are high end handsets reportedly, with some cool features to best one another. Lately, a rumor concerned with a technology displayed at the CES 2012 came out.
The rumor claimed that iPhone 5 will feature the Liquipel Waterproof technology which was demonstrated at the CES 2012. The Liquipel is actually a waterproof coating for mobile devices and it does an impressive job. The report or rumor or whatever, came from a tipster, who works in a high post in one of U.K’s top independent Mobile retailers. If this report turns out to be true, then iPhone 5 will be one of the first handsets which would feature Liquipel technology. Reportedly, Samsung Galaxy SIII will also feature the same technology, according to the tipster.
We can’t just consider them as rumors. Considering a few facts, we would see that there is a possibility. Most mobile phone insurance claims are because of liquid damage. So obviously, mobile manufacturing firms would think about doing something about it and their best bet is Liquipel Technology apparently. So the iPhone 5 and Galaxy SIII might actually come with this technology.
Liquipel Waterproof coating technology is not the only one around. A firm named HzO is reportedly on talks with Apple and Samsung for integrating their new waterproof technology in the Apple and Samsung smartphones reportedly. As per the reports, Samsung was quite impressed by HzO’s waterproof technology.
Those who were lucky enough to witness the Liquipel demo live at CES would definitely vouch for the technology to be included in smartphones in the future. HzO’s waterproof technology isn’t far behind either.
But it still needs to be confirmed by Apple and Samsung. We can only guess which waterproof technology the iPhone 5 and Galaxy SIII will opt – Liquipel or HzO?
