The handset that should launch on AT&T in less than a month shows has been spotted in what appears to be an official photo that reveals a gold/desert camo color scheme.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Active has been in the rumor mill for a while, but now we also have an image that appears to show the real thing. Unleashed online by the popular leakster and VentureBeat editor Evan Blass, the image shows the handset in a rather original finish, with a gold pattern on the front and a "desert camo" texture on the back.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Active SM-G891A is expected to debut on June 10. It will be exclusively available on AT&T at launch, and its alleged specs include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 4 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage, and a 5.5-inch QHD display. It will also feature a 5 MP front camera and a 12 MP image shooter on the back. Although the Galaxy S7 handsets already available are waterproof, the new Active handset should bring something extra to the table in terms of protection from the elements. 

This handset should obviously launch with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow on board. We will get back to it as soon as that happens, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
