Galaxy Note 6 will Come with Iris Scanner & IP68 Watertight Certification

Samsung‘s latest flagship, the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, are both water resistant. The feature was initially introduced in the Galaxy S5 smartphone but, when it came to GalaxyS6, Samsung opted for a more premium design, causing the water resistant feature to be eliminated. Now with the Galaxy S7 flagship the company has restored the feature. And the news reports are claiming, that the Galaxy Note 6 will also be water resistant.
