Over the past couple of months or so, more clues have emerged hinting at the possibility that Samsung is working on an “Active” variant based on its latest flagship phone. The so-called Samsung Galaxy S7 Active has previously been pushed under the spotlight thanks to a handful of leaks confirming its existence, and now AT&T seems to have spilled the beans and indirectly confirmed that it will carry the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active on its network. Moreover, the carrier revealed that the device will be eligible for its BOGO (buy-one-get-one) promotion.
Although the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active continues to elude us, and while the smartphone has yet to be officially confirmed, AT&T recently gave us a new reason to look forward to the eventual release of the device. The Samsung Galaxy S7 page on the carrier website now includes details on AT&T’s new BOGO deal and lists a number of smartphones that are eligible for the promotion. This includes the Samsung Galaxy S6 series, the Galaxy S7 lineup, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, and surprisingly enough, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active which, obviously, has yet to see the light of day. AT&T says that the BOGO deal ends on June 30th, which should give prospective customers enough time to take advantage of the promotion, assuming of course that the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active will be unveiled on June 10 according to expectations. It should be noted that, in order to take advantage of AT&T’s BOGO deal, prospective customers will be required to add a new line.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 Active is the direct successor to the Galaxy S6 Active variant released last year. It is supposed to flaunt an industrial design and roughly the same internal specifications as the regular variant. As a smartphone from the “Active” series, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active is expected to be more resilient than its standard counterpart. It should endure the elements with more ease, and could be an interesting choice for prospective customers who enjoy outdoor activities and a more active lifestyle in general. According to recent leaks, the smartphone should be equipped with a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display akin to the Samsung Galaxy S7, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, 4 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal memory, and a 12-megapixel main camera coupled with a 5-megapixel front facing sensor. Once again, if the latest reports turn out to be correct, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active should be officially introduced in a couple of weeks from now on June 10.
