Apple Reportedly Working on Smartphone Waterproofing Technology

Just a week ago we heard a news that a small company named Liquipel had developed an invisible, liquid-repelling coating that can make your expensive iPhone and several other gadgets entirely waterproof for a mere $59.

However, allegedly this is not the only company in possession of the technology. A small Utah-based startup called HzO has some similar sort of waterproof coating that is working on Waterblock. Apple is reportedly interested in the technology.

An HzO spokesperson while talking to Pocket-lint.com says:

“We showed the Samsung Chairman the technology with a Samsung Galaxy S that we had coated with HZO and he couldn’t believe his eyes,” a representative of the company told us. “Samsung is really excited by the tech.” The company has told us that they are talking to Apple as well, hoping to be able to let Apple make the iPhone 5 waterproof. “We expect HZO to be in next season’s phones,” HZO told Pocket-lint rather confidently.”

Like many others, we are also assuming that HzO will soon reach an agreement with a Cupertino-based tech giant Apple and perhaps with other makers to begin waterproofing their products prior to their shipment. Introducing this new technology may result in the increase in prices of the smartphones and other gadgets, but it is obvious that with such a useful technology customers won’t hesitate to spend few more dollars to have a secure device in their hands.

The video embedded will give you a clear idea how actually the HzO technology works:

Please let us know about your words about the new waterproofing technology. Do you find it big success in tech world? Or do you prefer having a waterproof gadget over a non-waterproof device?
