Leak confirms hardware specifications of the Galaxy S7 Active

The Galaxy S7 Active was spotted in a recent image leak, formally confirming its arrival on AT&T. A GFXBench listing has now surfaced, revealing the hardware specs of the smartphone in its customary fashion.

It is shown that this rugged Samsung flagship will sport a slightly larger 5.5-inch Quad HD display (the Galaxy S7 has a 5.1-inch display) accompanied by the quad-core Snapdragon 820 chipset, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 12-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front camera and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

This basically means that the handset is nothing but the Galaxy S7 edge (sans the edge display) in terms of internal hardware. Since this is the ‘Active’ model, fans can also expect to find rubberized buttons on the front and a plastic/polycarbonate body, in addition to an Active key. Unlike previous Active models, Samsung will be using a standard home button on the front, possibly with a fingerprint scanner underneath. The handset should be an exclusive via AT&T, with a launch expected soon.
