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.
