Remember the smartphone waterproofing solution we covered last month called Liquipel? Well it looks like the company may become be more significant than we imagined – if the rumors from todaysiphone.com turn out to be true. According to its trusted sources, the next iPhone and the Galaxy S3 will both feature Liquipel treatment, rendering the phones water repellent and less susceptible to liquid/moisture damage.
Apparently the Liquipel treatment is due to a change on the insurance for the phones – liquid and moisture damage are among the top causes of insurance claims, so waterproofing the phones should change all that. Not to mention, they would be good selling points for top-of-the-line phones that are already capable of pretty much anything. What do you think about a waterproof iPhone 5 or Galaxy S3? Is it a necessity?
