Samsung has held up the tradition of a rugged version of its flagship phone by bringing up Galaxy S7 Active this year. The tech giant will also introduce foldable smartphones (bendable screen) in 2017 as reported by the sources.
The rugged version of Samsung Galaxy S7 is totally different from the flagship by design, but on the specs table it is almost the same; hence, it is likely to attract a large number of customers for sure.
Galaxy S7 Active: Specs & Features
Galaxy S7 Active brings up durability with a shatter-proof display protected by a layer of Gorilla Glass 4. It doesn’t matter even if the phone drops from a 5 feet height, it can survive the fall due to its metal and rubber design which you can’t even imagine in case of S7 flagship. S7 Active is also water and dust resistant provided by the special protective measures.
Let’s have a look at the specifications of the phone
S7 Active features a 5.1 inch display with Super AMOLED and a resolution of QHD (2560 x 1440 pixels).
A Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset is placed inside with 4GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage with an option of extendable memory up to 256 GB via microSD card slot.
In the camera section, it boasts a 5MP of front and 12 MP rear camera with LED Flash, f/1.7 and 4K video recording.
The phone has a finger print scanner on the front powered by a large 4000mAh battery which is the largest ever amongst Samsung flagship phones.
Currently the phone is available in the US exclusively through AT&T in three colors; Green Gamo, Titanium Grey and Sandy Gold but it will be rolled out in the other parts of the world soon. The initial price of Galaxy S7 Active is set at $795 (approx. 82,0000 PKR).
Samsung has launched this rugged variant of Galaxy S7 flagship with shatter proof ability and is now planning to introduce a smartphone with a bendable screen that will look like a foldable flip phone.
These proposed devices will have OLED screens and an 8 inch display due to folding. Codenamed as “Project Valley”, these phones may get unveiled in Mobile World Congress, around February 2017.
