Samsung Galaxy S7 Active spotted at GFXBench, 5.5" display?13
Galaxy S7 – Snapdragon 820, 4 GB of RAM, the same camera and so on. On the screen, we have the same QHD (1,440 x 2,560) resolution, but the display's diagonal is up to 5.5”, from the 5.1” of the regular S7. This most probably means a larger body and, hopefully, a larger battery – maybe as large as the 3,600 mAh juicebox inside the Galaxy S7 edge?
Now, while the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge both have dust and water ingress protection, the Active traditionally boosts that up a few notches. Supposedly, we are to expect military-grade MIL-STD-810G protection, which means altitude pressures, shock, and salt wouldn't be able to harm the device.
We still can't be sure when exactly the Galaxy S7 Active would launch, but we would assume it would be a rather silent affair, sans the fanfares and red carpet that's laid out for the flagship Galaxy S series.
Thanks for the tip, Roland!
