After unveiling the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active, Samsung Mobile launches another Ugly Smartphone known as Samsung Galaxy S7 Active after the main Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge Android Smartphone. The S7 Active is a full water resistance, that is to say, it is a waterproof and can be used to roam the arena under the rain, swimming pool.
The glass-heavy design of the Samsung S7 Active still demands some kind of case. Counting it from the last four years, this is the fourth year in a row where Samsung has built a bigger, stronger, and uglier version of its flagship Galaxy smartphone for AT&T.
Active S7 supports a Galaxy S7 with a beefier, sturdier and plastic body, along with a 33 percent larger battery. The Galaxy S7 Active is a way of eliminating the middle-man and buying a Galaxy S7 that essentially has a military-grade battery case built-into the phone.
There is no much difference from the main Galaxy S7 and this S7 Active, most of the phone specs are the same. The common details includes a 5.1-inch QHD (2,560 x 1,440) display, Snapdragon 820 processor, 4 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage with microSD, 12MP rear camera and IP68 water and dust resistance.
Samsung Mobile excluded the Fingerprint for the former S6 Active but this year, they decided to Include it in the Galaxy S7 Active and it makes sense because it would also makes its way to the Active variant. The S7 Active is styled pretty closely to last year’s version, so it’s noticeably taller and wider than the regular S7 despite the screen size going unchanged.
Arrives with the QHD Super AMOLED display and Gorilla Glass 4 is an added layer of polycarbonate, which is an added precaution to help keep the screen from shattering. And also sports a 4,000 mAh battery (the Galaxy S7 has a 3,000 battery), and a “military-grade” build that’s 5 percent taller, 7 percent wider and a whopping 25 percent thicker. Samsung is also advertising its screen as “shatterproof.”
The Galaxy S7 Active will again be an AT&T US exclusive, launching June 10. It will ring up for US$795 (broken down in 24-month installments), which is about $100 more than AT&T charges for the standard S7.
