The new Active will again bring a lot of power in a ruggedized body. The fresh leaks reveal full specs.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 Active will again be quite an impressive device, if the leaks and rumors are to be believed. The specs are mostly the same with the Galaxy S7 with 5,1″ 1440p Super AMOLED display, Snapdragon 820, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. The microSD slot is also on board.
The biggest differences are the ruggedized body, physical navigation buttons and a much larger 4000mAh battery. Obviously the IP rating is going to be higher and the body of the device will be able to take much more hits than the glass and aluminium sandwich of the normal S7. One big feature the S6 Active lacked, the fingerprint scanner is now built in to the home button.
On the camera side, there are no differences. The 12MP rear camera is accompanied by a 5MP front shooter. The rear camera module seems to be lower than the riced edges of the 9.9mm thick body, so it’s probably less vulnerable for damage than the protruding one on the original S7.
