There may be a water resistant Samsung Galaxy S4 on the way - read the full textOne of the things the Sony Xperia Z lords over the Samsung Galaxy S4 is its IP57 certification, which grants it dust and water resistance. That advantage might not last long though, as a rugged version of the Samsung flagship might be unveiled in the coming weeks. During a Q&A session, Young Soo...

so i wonder if this model will have a fixed battery then seeing as it will be waterproof? i will be happy just buying a waterproof case for £30/$50 ish, waterproofing is ok but it is only to a depth of 1 metre at best so i can get cases easily that go a lot deeper then that, plus the screen wont work underwater anyway, the xperia z does not, so to take stills it has to be put into burst mode before submerging, and for those who say copying... you guys need to just shut up and know your facts, samsung have already had phones that are waterproof and so have sony, but in fact it is Casio in 2005 which made the first waterproof phone, its not even the first waterproof smarthphone either, not sure how sony can claim that one, it was apparently the nokia 5500 sport, not sure how it was classed as a smartphone and there have also been plenty of touchscreen waterproof phones since including the motorola defy, the sonim xp and many japanese phones. just because samsung are top of the pile does not mean they did any thing different to ANY other company, you are just blinded by your lack of knowledge and hatred for brands other then your own

It's totally fake news, no chance for water proofing due to open button open charging plug, open body cover, totally wrong.

Now those samsung haters consider this copying. If it is, then you can consider all smartphone manufacturers are all copycats coz they are not the first ones to make smartphones.

Haters gonna hate :P

Now this will come out at same price point. It will be bad for customers buying now S4 at same price.

Already there is Snapdragon/Octa core drama by samsung. Now this will add to it.

Note to mention they will bring two more colours before introducing water proof model with a higher price. Nice samsung !. I will never buy one.
