Leaked Galaxy S7 video shows off waterproofing and wireless charging


Samsung’s Indonesian arm appears to have shown off the Galaxy S7 almost a week earlier than planned.

The Verge reports an unlisted commercial marked #TheNextGalaxy and posted to the branch’s official YouTube channel shows Indonesian archer Dellie Threesyadinda training while using the new phone.

The design appears to be very similar to last year’s Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, with a curved screen Edge variant on show. The video doesn’t name the model being used, but Threesyadinda seems comfortable enough using it in a downpour, suggesting the rumored return to waterproofing is a go. The phone is also seen being used with a wireless charging pad.

A teaser website also located in Indonesia confirmed the name Galaxy S7 (with a sentence since removed; see image below) and provides further hints: a page with bubbles and the caption “worry-less discovery” is further evidence for waterproofing, while a lock icon and “experience privacy at its finest” implies extra security, and “bring light to the night” alongside an image of a camera lens may mean better low-light photography.
