First photos of the Samsung's rumoured rugged flagship smartphone variant Galaxy S7 active have reportedly been leaked online, revealing design features of the device.
A Vietnamese technology blog SamsungViet, which claims to have in possession the Galaxy S7 active, has posted several images of the device. In the photo, we see Samsung Galaxy S7 Active equipped with hard rubber-based bumps strategically placed on all four corners for additional protection, while the rest of the side edges look smooth.
The phone's rear-side is coloured with the army's combact-uniform-like camouflage pattern, an AT&T brand logo below the primary camera and the device's name â€“ "Galaxy S7 active" â€” at the bottom.
On the front, the Galaxy S7 active is shown to feature physical buttons (recents, home and back) at the bottom of the display.
This in line with the rumours that had suggested the Galaxy S7 active, internally known as "Samsung Poseidon," the phone will boast a sturdy polycarbonate cover with shock-proof and IP67 water-resistant and dust-proof certification, and will also be able to survive extreme temperatures, humidity and high altitude.
As far as internal hardware is concerned, the rugged Galaxy S7 active model will have the same specifications as seen inside the original Galaxy S7 model, but may come with additional battery capacity.
Previous year's Galaxy S6 active had had similar differences with the flagship model.
