According to reports landing in from LG’s home country, the next big thing from LG, the G3 might come in a water/dust-proof avatar, something Sony is known to be doing for quite some time.
With IP67 certification (and the likes) fast catching up, it is about time that LG too get in contention. It’s not only the big guns that are swayed the waterproof route, smaller, upcoming manufacturers such as Wickedleak have also shown interest in providing waterproof hardware to their young set of customers, albeit not with the ear pleasing IP67 certification.
The G3 will go head-on against the usual suspects for this year — the already seen Samsung Galaxy S5, the upcoming HTC ‘All New’ One (M8), Sony Xperia Z2, etc.
With a lot of smartphones getting damaged by water spills every year, we for one think it is quite sensible to have such a feature on your expensive smartphone. However, since there’s no confirmation on this yet we have to state the cliché; take it with a pinch of salt.
