Take the guts of a Samsung Galaxy S7 smartphone, add a bigger battery, and stuff everything into a thicker, ruggedized case and what you’ve got is the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active.
Samsung hasn’t officially launched the phone yet, but Evan Blass has written an article for VentureBeat that spills the beans on pretty much everything except the price.
The Galaxy S7 Active it the latest in a line of “Active” phones from Samsung. It’s not as thin or light as the company’s flagship phone, but it has a water and dust-resistant case that should make it more suitable for use in messy environments.
It’ll be available with black or gold case options, and the phone measures 9.9mm (0.39 inches) thick, and weighs 185 grams (6.5 ounces).
The latest model is said to have a 5.1 inch, 2560 x 1440 pixel Super AMOLED display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a microSD card slot, and a 4,000 mAh battery.
Blass says the US version of the phone will be available exclusively from AT&T when it launches in June.
