Samsung S7 Active spotted in the wild

Samsung S6 Active S7 Active

Shortly after the non-water or dust-resistant Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge came the Galaxy S6 Active: a beautiful device with the ruggedness to survive a 18 foot drop. But will there be an S7 Active?

Obviously with the release of the S7 and S7 Edge, the rumour mills are debating the possibility of such a device. Well that seems to be somewhat confirmed.

Someone from the company had posted the name of the device in the change log for the Samsung Level app. It lists the Galaxy S7 Active, which pretty much means that Samsung is already working on the device. The post has since been deleted.

Now, why would Samsung be working on a water and dust resistant phone when the S7 and S7 Edge already offer this? One reason could be the military-grade protection (MIL-STD-810G) for the brand’s more active and adventurous customers.
