Samsung Galaxy S7 Active specs outed ahead of official unveiling

A new leak aims to give us all the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active details we didn't already know.

We know the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active is coming. It’s been subject to a good amount of leaks over the past few weeks, and the renders and leaked images shown off here and here seem to be pretty legitimate. Now that we have a good idea as to what the phone will look like, we’re just waiting on a list of under-the-hood specifications.

Thankfully that day has arrived. The folks at VentureBeat were supposedly shown an official spec sheet, outlining pretty much everything we wanted to know about this new dust- and water-resistant handset.

The Galaxy S7 Active will reportedly measure 9.9 millimeters thick, compared to the 8.6mm measurement of the S6 Active‘s chassis. This increase is likely due to the fact that the S7 Active will sport a sizable 4000mAh non-removable battery, up from the 3500mAh unit found in last year’s model. The S7 Active will also weigh 185 grams.

The new handset will likely come with a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED Quad HD display, a Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of on-board storage, microSD expansion, and will run Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. Additionally, the device will come with the same 12MP rear camera with dual pixel sensor that’s found on the standard Galaxy S7, as well as a 5MP front-facing camera.

For those of you on Verizon, T-Mobile or Sprint hoping to get your hands on this new hotness, I’m sorry to say that you’re out of luck. This will be an AT&T-exclusive device, just like the Active variants before it.

According to the leak, the Galaxy S7 Active will be unveiled on June 10th.

Anyone excited? Now that we seemingly have most of the details nailed down, let us know what you think in the comments below.
