Samsung has released a new rugged variant of its premium Galaxy S7 smartphone.
If you’re inclined to chucking around expensive handsets, or enjoy living an adventurous lifestyle, you’ll probably be pleased to know that Samsung will be re-releasing this year’s flagship model as the Galaxy S7 Active – and this was just confirmed by the American telephone network AT&T.
Carrying most of the same high-spec innards which impressed with the original Samsung Galaxy S7, including powerful Snapdragon 820 processing, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage with option to expand to 200GB, this upgraded rough and ready version also comes with extras geared towards use out in the wild.
As well as the above, this beast comes with 5.1-inch display built to Gorilla Glass 4 specification preventing cracks, shattering, scratching and dust penetration – even with all this protection you’ll be able to use the touchscreen and also unlock the phone thanks to fingerprint recognition. The phone is wrapped in a rubberised casing to save it from any bumps and it can survive being under 5 feet of water for 30 minutes. There’s also a shortcut button added to the side of the phone to offer easy access to some of the smartphone’s most useful features.
Knowing that you could be out for a long day, Samsung has suitably equipped the Galaxy S7 Active with a larger capacity 4,000mAh battery which should offer you plenty of use and potential to capture lots of shots with the 12-megapixel main camera and 5-megapixel selfie cam in previously untapped territories. And keeping in the outdoorsy theme, the handset comes in colour choices of Sandy Gold, Camo Green and Titanium Grey.
