Samsung’s Galaxy S7 is already capable of withstanding the elements thanks to its IP68 certification, but its glass and aluminum design make it a little too delicate for true outdoor use. As such, the Korean company is planning to release a ruggedized version of the handset, the specs of which have seemingly been confirmed by VentureBeat.

According to the report, the Galaxy S7 Active will be slightly thicker and heavier compared to last year’s Galaxy S6 Active, apparently due to the device’s larger 4000mAh battery (up from 3500mAh). Other alleged specs include a 5.1-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display, support for expandable storage, Snapdragon 820 chip, and 4GB of RAM. VentureBeat says the device will run Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box.

Like the Galaxy S7, the S7 Active will also sport a 12-megapixel camera, which uses dual-pixel technology for better focusing and low-light performance. Essentially, buyers are getting the Galaxy S7 in a body that should in theory be able to withstand a tougher lifestyle. The device is expected to be an AT&T exclusive when it launches in early June.
