Samsung's Galaxy S7 Active has been revealed, and it's being described as the company's most durable smartphone.
(CCM) — On Monday, Samsung's much-awaited Galaxy S7 Active was unveiled. The smartphone, whose main selling points are its shatter- and water-proof hardware, was revealed by U.S. mobile phone carrier AT&T, which will be the exclusive phone carrier to receive this model. The carrier's website describes the smartphone as the "toughest Galaxy device ever" and, perhaps, for good reason. Some of the phone's specs include a 4,000 mAh battery, up to 200GB of expandable memory, and a built-in fingerprint scanner. The smartphone is available in three colors: Sandy Gold, Camo Green, and Titanium Gray. Though AT&T's website states that the smartphone is coming soon, early reviews of the phone are praising its ruggedness and impressive battery life.
Samsung has long been interested in reaching a physically active user base. Its most recent endeavor to secure customers who are fitness-minded was the introduction of two new wearables: the Gear Fit 2 and the Gear Icon X. The Gear Fit 2 is a fitness band that helps wearers keep track of their physical activity, as well as manage their music and notifications; the Gear Icon X is a set of wireless headphones that performs many of the same functions as the fitness band. The band will be available for purchase June 10, but Samsung has yet to disclose when the headphones will be released.
