Samsung has started 2016 with bang by releasing it’s Galaxy S7 Flagship smartphone’s at MWC event. Company has launched two flagship phone’s Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge this year which are currently available now. The Galaxy S7 Flagship is named to be the best mobile phone manufactured ever but we think Samsung has already started working on a better version of S7. Yes! You got it we are talking about Samsung Galaxy S7 Active which is rumoured multiple times during past few weeks. We are also getting rumours for Galaxy S7 Mini with having 4.6 inch display and most of the specs that we have with S7. Although Samsung has not made any official announcement till now but yes there is huge possibilities for a Mini and Active variant.
As per the current updates Evan Blass (from evleaks) thinks that Samsung is preparing a rugged Galaxy S7 which is going to launch very soon. Recently, the device was spotted on Zauba which is an Indian Package tracking website, is apparently tested by AT&T. The package is described as “Sample Samsung mobile” and a model number SM-G891A and last year we got Galaxy S6 Active with model number SM-G890A. So, its a big hint and most probably is Galaxy S7 Active Smartphone. Here we are going to have a complete Round up on upcoming Galaxy S7 Active including full specification, country wise price and expected release date.
