The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7 Active was rumored to have a 5.5-inch display like the Galaxy S7 edge. Now, a new report claims the smartphone will use the same 5.1-inch screen found on the Galaxy S7.
AT&T and Samsung haven't been able to keep details regarding the soon-to-be-launched Galaxy S7 Active under lock and key. The smartphone first leaked back in March when it was said to be under testing by AT&T, which wasn't much of a surprise considering Samsung and the carrier have exclusively launched Galaxy S Active smartphones each year, beginning with the Galaxy S4 Active in 2013, followed by the Galaxy S5 Active in 2014 and the Galaxy S6 Active in June 2015.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 Active made a pit stop at GFXBench in May, which confirmed most of the smartphone's specs, or so we thought. The smartphone's listing claimed it featured a 5.5-inch 2,560 x 1,440 quad-HD display, which happens to be much larger than that of the Galaxy S6 Active that packed in the same 5.1-inch screen found on the Galaxy S6.
It now appears that the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active will not ship with a 5.5-inch display and will instead use the same 5.1-inch quad-HD screen found on the Galaxy S7.
Venturebeat has received an official spec sheet for the AT&T Samsung Galaxy S7 Active, and the report claims the smartphone will pack in a 5.1-inch 2,560 x 1,440 quad-HD display, Snapdragon 820 processor, 4 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, microSD expansion slot and run Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box.
Like the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, the Galaxy S7 Active will boast the same camera capabilities; 12-megapixel rear camera with a dual pixel sensor, OIS (optical image stabilization) and 5-megapixel front-facing camera.
AT&T and Samsung are expected to launch the Galaxy S7 Active on June 10, and a "Desert Camo" gold color option will be offered. As always, we'll keep you posted on any new information.
