Samsung Galaxy S7 Active gets leaked in 'desert camo' gold
posted by Ben R. / May 17, 2016, 11:15 AM
Samsung's Galaxy S7 duo ships with dust- and waterproofing out of the box, the firm still looks poised to sell an Active version of its treasured flagship. A couple of weeks back, we caught a glimpse of a military-style camoflage edition of the purported device in the wild, and now, resident leakster Evan Blass has offered a peek at a potential golden flavor. Though gold-colored mobile gadgets have been very much in fashion these past couple of years, you'll notice that this model is more of a sandy shade, which Blass describes as 'desert camo'.
As we've come to expect of the Active series, the device looks unashamedly bulky by comparison to the standard Galaxy S7. As opposed to the slick, metallic edge, Active owners will likely get a concoction of rubber and polycarbonate plastic. Even though the regular S7 pairing does include base-level protection against water and dust, the S7 Active will apparently be built to MIL-STD-810G standards. This will arm the handset against extreme climate conditions including altitude pressures, shock and salt.
Set to carry the model number SM-G891A, it's probable that the device will include a 5.1-inch display boasting a resolution of 1440 x 2560—just like the regular GS7. A recent report did indicate that the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active could include a 5.5-inch panel instead, so we're keeping an open mind in this regard.
Away from the screen, the Active model looks set to pack the likes of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820, 4 gigs of RAM, and the numerous other high-end treats found in both the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. Blass' recent coverage also reaffirms the notion that the device will launch on AT&T in the United States.
We'll keep you posted on any further updates. In the meantime, let us know in the comments whether the Galaxy S7 Active is on your wish-list.
- Display 5.1" 1440 x 2560 pixels
- Camera 12 MP / 5 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, Quad-core, 2150 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 4000 mAh
OMG, This phone looks disgusting, gross and super ugly. Definitely the ugliest phone of the year. LOL, good for lenovo though. Their moto X wouldn't be the ugliest phone of the year.

Looks pretty much the same way Samsung active phones always look. If you ask me it's the color that is truly ugly, just look at the S6 active, in the photos I think the phone looks pretty good for a rugged device but then I image it with that UGLY gold desert camo and it's downright mind aching.

Hope that front linear pattern is a glitch in rendering/photography (no clue tbh), it looks way off - otherwise it looks OK for a rugged phone.

God... People around me never appreciated any of the Active phones, but I personally think they're good looking for a durable phone. Last year's S6A even had those digital camos that made it look even better. But heck, what is this? Do we *have* to include a fingerprint sensor with this phone? And does it have to be ugly like this?
