Nokia will soon be announcing its new range of Pureview and Lumia series of handsets but that’s not all Nokia is working on at the moment. The Finnish handset giant is working on the implementation of the Superhydrophobic technology that is known to repel water with its handsets.
With the use of this technology, Nokia aims at making the future handsets including Lumia and Pureview smartphones waterproof. While making devices waterproof will certainly be a big advantage as it will allow users to use mobiles even when it’s raining hard but along with that the adoption of this technology will surely enhance the life of the devices.
Conor Pierce, vice president of Nokia Western Europe, while explaining it to the Somobile of UK, said, “Superhydrophobic technology makes water bounce, it stops it, rolls it off the device and leaves it water impregnant. That’s the magic, that’s what we’re going to bring to the party.”
Although work is underway, Nokia is still not ready to comment on when this waterproofing technology will be implemented in its mobile phones. Although many manufacturers like Motorola have tried and have successfully managed to create water resistant devices but creating something that is waterproof would be a giant leap ahead.
