Before you get too excited, realize one thing – this is a rumor. It comes from one of our sources who has been correct in the past. Thanks to him we knew when the white iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S were going to be launched. In both instances, he was correct. That being said, he informs me of the latest whisperings with a side of caution.
The source is well-placed in one of the UK’s top independent phone retailers. He states that both the next iPhone and the Samsung Galaxy S III will have Liquipel treatment. The Liquipel coating covers both inside and outside the phones to make it water repellent, making them less susceptible to liquid/moisture damage.
