Samsung Galaxy S7 Active specs

The Samsung Galaxy S7 Active is officially official! But only on AT&T. And the gist is that you're basically looking at a full Galaxy S7 in a more rugged exterior. The screen is less likely to crack if dropped. It's hardened against shock — meaning it should survive a fall better than its older cousins.

Otherwise? These official Galaxy S7 specs should look very familiar. Let's have a look.

  • What's 802.11r..? Never heard of it... Posted via the Android Central App
  • It's a roaming thing. Posted via the Android Central App
  • An Active with a fingerprint sensor? This makes me almost want to go back on AT&T to get one.
  • Do they have them unlocked? I have always wanted one but i dont like at&t. This one looks great too. It almost makes me want to switch. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Not sure in the states but if they sell it in Mexico (like the previous ones) you can ask for it to be unlocked. Im not sure how the LTE will work though, many LTE phones that mexican buy in the states end up as a 3G device here. I remember some guys in XDA that used to sell mexican phones and many in the states bought them or were asking for them.
  • I love how they list the FM tuner like AT&T is gonna leave that accessible, lol. My S5A has an FM tuner also, but you can't use it, cause, you know, data fees are more profitable...
  • Another reason not to buy devices from the carriers, garbage like that. It's a damn FM tuner for christs sake. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Wish this thing wasn't exclusive to AT&T
  • Every phone can be unlocked there required to do that by law. So just buy it and put your sim card in it Posted via the Android Central App
  • You can't just put your SIM card in it. Verizon is required to have all phones unlocked for use across carriers. The others are free to do as they see fit as long as there is a path to having it unlocked. AT&T has a stupid set of rules like you have to have an account in good standing, had the phone for x months, etc.
  • Every phone company has there own Hoops to jump through. But in the end they have to unlock your phone eventually it is the law . That was passed couple years ago . Att unlocked every phone I asked took a week but they did it after that your gsm sim card should work. And you don't have to have the phone several months ive has used phones that where Att unlocked as long as the imei number is clean and it's a Att phobe obviously Posted via the Android Central App
  • As long as you own the phone, ie paid it off or bought it at full price, this is definitely true.
  • It should named it Galaxy S7 ActiveT&T Posted via the Android Central App from Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge
  • So I guess I'll have to wait for the non-AT&T mexican version. Right in the middle of the S7 and S7 Edge price I guess.
  • They make one for the Mexican market? Can you elaborate? I live right on the border and it might be worth my while to cross over briefly to pick one up if it's available somewhere close. Posted thru my HTC 10 or S7 Edge
  • As far as I remember there was a version being sold in Mexico. Not sure if it was TELCEL or IUSACELL. I think the former. I didnt pay attention to the S6 Active but I do remember the S4 or S5.
