Impressive-sounding Galaxy S7 Active specs don’t make it any less ugly

The Samsung Galaxy S7 Active sounds like it’ll have a pretty impressive spec sheet to counter its rather questionable fashion sense.

After leaked renders showcased a gaudy gold and grey handset last week, the same source has returned with the specifications for the device.

Apparently, the Madonna of smartphones will rock a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor with 4G of RAM, up on last year’s 3GB handset.

There’ll also be a whopping 4000mAh battery, which is another improvement on the 3500mAh served up to consumers with the Galaxy S6 Active.

In terms of the display, it’ll boast the same 5.1-inch 1440 x 2560 resolution screen featured within the Galaxy S7.

That extra girth adds 15g to the weight (185g) while the tough phone gains more than a millimeter in thickness, from 8.6mm to 9.9mm, according to the report.

The camera resolution will apparently from form 16-megapixels to 12-megapixels a la the main device.

According to Evan Blass (aka evleaks), it’ll arrive running Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

Blass says the device will be exclusive to AT&T in the United States. It’s unclear whether this year’s device will buck the trend and make it to Europe.
