Samsung Galaxy S7 has been a hit ever since it was launched at the MWC this year. In fact, the latest flagship from Samsung is now available for sale in most markets of the Korean giant. However, Samsung isn't ready to be overawed by its success and in this highly competitive smartphone industry it is quite wise not be so!
In an interesting new leak shared by viral tipster @evleaks, AT&T is testing out a mysterious Samsung smartphone with a model number of SM-G891A. Incidentally the device in question is none other than a variant of the Samsung Galaxy S7!
As a matter of fact, it is a variant which the Korean electronics giant fondly refers to as Active signifying its hard build armoured body meant for protecting against shock, dust and water. Apparently the tipster who goes by the name Evan Blass has succeeded to get his hand on an import listing of the same and guess what he has sourced it from none other than Zauba, a trusted database for such leaks.

Apparently the model number of the alleged Samsung device is all so surprising and this in fact makes us believe that the device in none other than the Galaxy S7 Active. Just to recall the original Samsung Galaxy S7 comes with a model number of SM-G890A which is very close to that of the recently imported variant.
Well, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active variant which was launched last year came with a MIL-STD-810G, P68 waterproofing protection and a significantly larger battery. Besides that, the device also came with an expandable memory slot.
However, with Samsung Galaxy S7 taking away the presence of the MicroSD and a Waterproof certification, it would be interesting to see what the Active variant of the device packs in the eventually.
