We’ve been hearing reports that the Samsung Galaxy S7 will be water resistant for a few months now. Now it seems like that feature is basically confirmed. In a teaser clip posted to Twitter recently, Samsung’s official account basically spelled out the new feature.

“Change your idea of what a phone can handle on 2.21.16 #TheNextGalaxy,” the Samsung Tweet reads. In the short video, a young woman is seen dropping her smartphone into some sort of pool, before picking it up and presumably moving on with her life. In the past, Samsung has released “Active” versions of its Galaxy S smartphones that usually pack beefed up water resistance. It looks like that will be standard this year.
Samsung is hosting its Galaxy S7 “Unpacked” press conference this Sunday. We’ll be reporting live from Barcelona, and we’ll let you know all about it as soon as we have the details.
