Welcome to iMore!

I can not give you a definite answer, but can only conclude that it is permanently damaged. If not it would only be a matter of time. I would consider getting a new phone.

As you dropped it in salt water it is only a matter of time before it starts coercing the boards inside. I would think about replacing, for sure.
