Samsung took the wraps off its flagship Galaxy S7 in February this year at the MWC 2016. For the past few years, Samsung has been rolling out spin-offs of its flagship smartphones.
Going by the same, we can expect the Galaxy S7 Active to be launched anytime this year.
Eventually, the Galaxy S7 Active started leaking online revealing the potential specifications that could be a part of it. Check out the roundup that we have come up with here.
Galaxy S7 Active to come with military certification
The Galaxy S7 Active was spotted in the change-log of the Samsung Level app. The app listed the device with the model number SM-G891A. It is supposed to be dust and waterproof as it is a rugged version of the flagship.
It will come with military certification as its prequel, Galaxy S6 Active. So, it will boast protection from salt, vibration shock, altitude pressures, humidity, etc.

A juicier battery could be used this time
Galaxy S7 Active was spotted on the import/export tracking website Zauba by the Twitter based serial leakster. The listing reveals the model number SM-G891A once again.
The smartphone is likely to make use of a more capacious battery than the 3,000 mAh battery in the Galaxy S7.
As per the listing, the SM-G891A has a 5.1 inch display that matches the screen size of the Galaxy S7. The price of this specific device is given as $359.90 (approx. Rs 24,000).
Galaxy S7 Active for AT&T in the making
Continuing the partnership that started back in 2013 for the Galaxy S4 Active, the Galaxy S7 Active for AT&T is in the making.
A Vietnamese source leaked the camouflage back panel featuring rubber bumper protection at the top, bottom, and sides. It is believed that Samsung has vital manufacturing operations over there.
It also shows tougher buttons on the sides and front that will make it even more rugged.
The specs leaked reveal that there will be IP68 certification for water and dust resistance. Also, it will be equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC teamed up with 4 GB RAM.
QHD display to be retained in rugged model
The alleged Galaxy S7 Active was spotted in the GFXBench listing that leaked earlier this week. This listing shows the potential specifications of the rugged device.
The hardware aspects seem to be impressive with the same QHD 1440p display as the Galaxy S7. It seems to have a Snapdragon 820 SoC and 4 GB of RAM.
The display seems to measure up to 5.5 inches diagonally. This points out at a larger body than the 5.1 inch Galaxy S7. Eventually, it is believed to feature a large battery as the 3,600 mAh one in Galaxy S7 edge.
