Samsung's Galaxy S5 Active is available for $199 on contract from AT&T

Samsung announced its Galaxy S5 back in February to much fanfare. The smartphone comes packed with a 5.1” 1080p display, quad-core 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, and a 16MP rear-camera. Quite unexpectedly, the smartphone also came with a water- and dust-proof resistant (IP67 rating).
 
Today, Samsung is expanding the “survivability” of its flagship smartphone with the Galaxy S5 Active. The Galaxy S5 Active is the follow-up to the Galaxy S4 Active that was launched in June 2013.
 
The Galaxy S5 Active carries over all of the functionality of the standard Galaxy S5, but includes a rugged, shock-resistant case. The Galaxy S5 Active does, however, do away with the capacitive front-facing controls to make way for physical buttons.
 
The Galaxy S5 Active is available in Titanium Gray, Camo Green, and Ruby Red. It’s available right now from AT&T at a price of $199 on contract.

People tend to drop their phones more often than dive with them in the deep for hours. I'm guessing Samsung went with the statistics here.
Probably there are devices which are IP68 certified but I don't think you need a flagship phone for your diving hobby.
