4GB RAM, Up to 256GB expandable memory, Fingerprint sensor, 4000 mAh battery
Single SIM, Non-removable battery
While its predecessor Galaxy S7 comes with an Exynos 8 Octa-core 8890 processor, the Galaxy S7 Active is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 Quad-core processor. The S7 Activ runs on Android OS v6.0 (Marshmallow). Designed with Kyro architecture, the processor’s speed is 2x2.15 GHz. The powerful Adreno 530 Graphics Processor Unit makes the Galaxy S7 Active a perfect phone to play high-end games.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 Active comes with the same cameras as its predecessor. The 12MP primary camera comes with Geo-tagging, Simultaneous 4K video and 9MP image recording, Touch focus, Face/smile detection, Auto HDR, and Panorama features. And the front shooter is of 5MP.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 Active is powered by a massive 4000 mAh Li-ion battery. Samsung claims that on a full charge, the non-removable battery can last up to 32 hours of 3G talktime. Its predecessor, Galaxy S7 has only a 3000 mAh battery.
Design and Display:
Weighing around 185 grams, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active is a heavily built mobile, 30 grams heavier than its forerunner. The IP68 shock resistant S7 Active comes with the dimensions 148.8x74.9x9.9mm. This phone also comes with a dedicated button on top of the volume rocker on the left side, through which one can access desired apps and two physical navigation buttons. Also, unlike the Galaxy S7, which is quite glossy and vulnerable to damage, the Galaxy S7 Active comes with a rubber enclosure on the corners. The rugged exterior around the phone protects it from any sort of damage. Also, Samsung claims that the S7 Active is shatter resistant.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 Active comes with a 4GB RAM and 32GB internal memory, which can be expandable up to 256GB with a MicroSD card.

For now, this mobile has been only released in the US with AT&T carrier. The Indian version of the phone is soon to be expected and the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active price in India would be around Rs 54000.
