The Samsung Galaxy S7 Active will be exclusively released by AT&T in the United States. The more robust variant of the Galaxy S7 is a successor to last year’s Galaxy S6 Active.
The company claims it to be the “toughest Galaxy device ever.” The AT&T exclusive Samsung Galaxy S7 Active will go on sale from June 10, with similar monthly rental plans as the Galaxy S7 family of handsets.
The new Samsung Galaxy S7 Active will cost US$26.50 per month on AT&T Next Plan. On the other hand, under the Next Every Year plan, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active will be available for US$33.13 per month.
The smartphone will be available in three different color variants including Sandy Gold, Camo Green and Titanium Gray.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 Active touts a shatter-resistant 5.1-inch Super AMOLED Quad HD display with a fingerprint scanner in its Home Button. Thanks to the gigantic 4,000mAh battery unit, the smartphone will be thicker and heavier than its predecessor. The Samsung Galaxy S6 Active houses a generous 3,500 mAh battery cell to keep the lights on.
Under the hood, the AT&T Samsung Galaxy S7 Active will be powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor accompanied by a massive 4GB of RAM and 32GB of inbuilt storage. The S7 Active will also feature a microSD card slot for memory expansion.
Samsung relied on its homegrown quad-core Exynos 7420 Octa chipset for the Galaxy S6 Active last year. The smartphone houses 3GB of RAM.
In the camera department, there will be the same 12-megapixel main camera along with a 5MP selfie shooter as the Galaxy S7. The robust Samsung Galaxy S7 Active will be shipped with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box. The IP68 certified device is also dust and water resistant.
