AT&T launches the Galaxy S7 Active, available June 10

We have known for some time now that the Galaxy S7 Active is going to be launched soon and today AT&T has finally made the official announcement. The Galaxy S7 Active has been launched and it will be available for purchase starting June 10. Since this smartphone was one of Samsung’s worst kept secrets, the announcement doesn’t really reveal anything that we don’t already know about the Galaxy S7 Active.

The Galaxy S7 Active features a 5.1-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display, a Snapdragon 820 processor with 4GB RAM, 12-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front camera, 32GB internal storage, microSD card support, and a positively massive 4,000mAh battery. However, that’s not what sets this handset apart from the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge. It actually features a “shatter resistant” display and touts MIL STD-810G certification, meaning that it’s more than capable of holding its own against bumps and drops. Another big difference is that this handset has three physical buttons at the bottom instead of a mixture of physical and capacitive buttons you find on the Galaxy S7. It happens to be the first Active device from Samsung to have a fingerprint sensor and thus support for Samsung Pay.

Like previous Active handsets, it’s exclusive to AT&T in the United States. Customers can purchase it from the carrier for $26.50 per month on the 30-month AT&T Next plan, or for $33.31 per month on the 24-month plan, starting June 10, in Sandy Gold, Titanium Grey, and Camo Green colors. It will be eligible for AT&T’s BOGO offer at launch.

A pity be exclusive to one carrier.
You should get more countries, like Brazil, for example.

Why the hell is the s7 active at&t exclusive. The s5 active wasn’t exclusive but when the s6 active came it was exclusive on at&t and now the s7 active too. Really didn’t Samsung learn anything from the s6 active being exclusive. The market for the active is big. But Samsung choose to keep it exclusive

Shatter resistant screen? Does that mean plastic like Motorolas plastic screen? I suppose it might be a good idea for the environment this phone might operate in.

Why is this exclusive?! I have an S7 Edge now, but if it would have come out at the same time than the S7 Edge in Europe, I would have bought this one. Simply because of the bigger battery and the redundancy of cases.

But I would still prefer the Exynos over the Snapdragon variant.
