spotted traces of the Galaxy S7 Active on Zauba, and now Samsung seems to have -- perhaps inadvertently -- confirmed the device's existence. As noticed by SamMobile, the latest edition of the Samsung Level app (below right) lists the unannounced Galaxy S7 Active in its changelog. Though there's still no word on specific features or release info, it's now safe to say that the Galaxy S7 Active is in the works.It was last week that serial leakster Evan Blass
be considerably better equipped for much harsher terrain.
Given that there's been no announcement as yet, we cannot be definitely sure of the S7 Active's features. But if last year's model is anything to go by, the toughened edition will match the specs of the standard S7 models and may, if Samsung is feeling generous, include a larger battery once more.

I'm interested about the Battery capacity. Any news on that?

So stupid. EVERY S7 should be damage resistant. My S7 Edge shattered when dropped from only TWO FEET. That's why I returned it for a LG G5. After owning EVERY Samsung smartphone ever released, Samsung can kiss my @$$.

Not that I disagree, but it is basically two pieces of glass sandwiched together with a metal frame. It is no surprise at all that it breaks easily. Unfortunately, this is the trade off for the "premium design" Samsung was finally pushed into. I always wondered why they couldn't do metal on the back, though.

I hope one day we will have phones made of metallic glass (e.g. Liquidmetal) Harder, higher strength and strength/weight than titanium alloys (less prone to dents and scratches) Like metal, doesn't shatter or crack, unlike glass or ceramic They've been used for Vertu phones, and Apple's SIM ejector

another person finallly gets it. samsung is good at flooding the market with everything from a to z. look at everything from freezers. washers. dryers. tvs. frigs. kias. toasters. etc. etc. and nothing has a resale value worthy of mentioning

They are, several droptests prove they are quite resistant? course there are also fakes out there, but other droptests prove they are quite resistant, against such issues, similar to other phones, it comes down to 'how' damage resistant and what it hits on, hitting a corner stone or such with a specific part of the phone will impart a lot more damage, so yeah....bad luck it still a factor.

Looking forward to this one, hopefully not AT&T exclusive.

I can't understand why did they make the S6 active exclusive, don't they want more units get sold? I think that was a stupid move from Samsung,, and it seems they are still going along with it. Maybe they deserve to see some decline in sales.

1. Add a fingerprint scanner for Samsung Pay (use different technology that works with water) 2. Make this available on every network 3. Include a massive battery like the S6 Active If you include all of these things, it will be the best phone on the market.

Haha true but I believe why they didn't include one on the S5 Active and S6 Active is because it doesn't work with water (when unlocking your phone). The only way I'd use Samsung Pay is through fingerprint identification.

Memory is still crippled - not allowing more than 32GB for apps is a joke in 2016. They intentionally broke android adoptable storage. And adding a glass back is just plain stupid. I guess its time to wait for the S8 and see if they can get it right for once.

Carrier exclusivity is so stupid. I don't really care what deals Samsung has with AT&T regarding this, the fact that AT&T is the only place where you can get the Active in the US is just asinine. Cool, unlocked it'll work on T-Mobile, but no VoLTE or WiFi Calling. And forget about using it on Verizon or Sprint. Way to go Samsung. Bending over for US carriers since 2010!
