This rugged flagship has about the same specs as the North American Galaxy S7, but features a larger battery and better protection from the elements.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Active is finally official and will launch soon exclusively on AT&T. Advertised as "Toughest Galaxy Device Ever," this IP68-rated handset has almost the same features as the Galaxy S7 flagship, but comes with a larger battery and is the first Galaxy Active device launched so far to offer a fingerprint reader.

The new Galaxy S7 Active uses the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chip as the North American S7, accompanied by a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display with 1440p resolution. Its battery has 4000 mAh, enough to provide an entire day of mixed use. This handset is also the first Galaxy Active device to offer a built-in fingerprint sensor.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Active has a shatter-resistant display that can handle drops up to 5 feet on flat surfaces while its resistance from water has been certified IP68. Its colors are camo green, titanium gray, and sandy gold. Unfortunately, the price is not known yet, but those interested will be able to grab one starting this Friday. We will get back to it then, 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.
