Galaxy S7 Active looks ready for combat in latest leak

The latest images indicate the phone should be ready to go in the US very soon.

A new version of the Galaxy S7 looks like it’s wrapping up boot camp and will report for duty shortly.

This report comes courtesy of some leaked images from Vietnam, which is often a source for discoveries. They show a camouflage-designed phone with the more sizable footprint, similar to what we’ve seen in the past with "Active" editions.

The Galaxy S7 Active is designed to be more rugged than the current flagship models.

While there are no specifics from this leak about the specs, our experience with the Galaxy S6 Active shows the internals usually stick close to the current edition.

What the Active edition gets you is the more robust exterior, three physical buttons instead of just one home button, and a bigger battery so it can last during all your outdoor adventures. This year’s Galaxy S7 and S7 Active already have water resistance, but you definitely need a case as the glass-and-metal design is easily breakable, and a fingerprint magnet.

Under the hood, the Galaxy S7 Active should have the same spec sheet as the more popular model.

The images show an AT&T model—as with past Active phones, we expect it to be an AT&T exclusive in the U.S.

Why this matters: When these type of leaks appear, it means we’re usually creeping close to a launch. We got our hands on the GS6 Active in July last year, so at the most we probably have a couple of months or less before Samsung marches these phones out to the stores.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
