A rugged variant of the Samsung Galaxy S7 has emerged online in images recently. The forthcoming Samsung Galaxy S7 Active is said to feature a hard polycarbonate and rubber mixed chassis, replacing the metal frame featured in Galaxy S7.
The images of Samsung Galaxy S7 Active leaked from Vietnam displaying the flagship smartphone in a camouflage design with rubber bumper shield and physical buttons instead of the touch capacitive ones featured in the original Galaxy S7.
Samsung Galaxy S7 Active is expected to be fueled by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC coupled with 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM. In addition, the handset is also expected to sport IP 68 certification, which implies the next Samsung device will be absolutely dustproof and water resistant.
Additionally, the smartphone is also expected to come with one or two color choices apart from the camouflage one exhibited in the leaked photos. The leaked images also display AT&T branding on the latest Samsung Galaxy S7 Active, which is persistent with the preceding years in which carriers had the restricted rights to the rugged alternative.
Notably, the South Korean electronics giant also launched a Sprint-labeled Galaxy S5 Sport in 2014 featuring quite identical specifications and layout to the Active. However, no such version was reproduced for the Galaxy S6 range for the Sprint network.
Sadly, no more details or internal specs have been revealed via the photos. However, those interested in the device will certainly get their hands on the details including price and availability soon as Samsung high-end device lands in its destined market of the West.
