Everyone’s teasing waterproof smartphones: now it’s T-Mobile’s turn


June is well upon us, and as those of us in the northern hemisphere get ready to start easing our way into summer, that’s going to mean beating the heat anyway we can. If your plans include trips to the ocean, lake, or pool, you might want to think about keeping your smartphone safe from all that water. To that end, waterproof phones are more popular than ever this year, and carriers are starting to get excited about selling them. We just saw a video from AT&T that sure seemed to suggest it could reveal its plans for the Galaxy S 4 Active tomorrow, and now T-Mobile has a similar clip of its own; which model is it promoting?

Unlike the AT&T video, we don’t get to see the phone at all this time around. That doesn’t leave us totally without a clue, as we’ve already been talking about the Sony Xperia Z (above) getting ready for T-Mobile.

On the other hand, could this also be about the GS4 Active? While we haven’t seen anything in specific linking T-Mobile to the handset, it’s hard to ignore the parallels between this video and AT&T’s – particularly how both were published today, and both tease announcements of waterproof phones, both taking place tomorrow. Once again, check back with us on Thursday for answers.
