After coming up with two exquisite-looking phones – the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge – Samsung seems to have finally lost its touch. The recently leaked images of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7 Active may prove that it is a nightmare in the making.
Samsung had Android users anticipating all kind of rumors when it comes to its next launch – the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active. Needless to say, most of the rumors were far from negative, since the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge managed to steal the show as soon when they were launched. What the users were not expecting was to be greeted with images of the ugliest phone ever!
The probable look of Samsung Galaxy S7 Active has been leaked time again, with prototype images surfacing a few weeks back, reports GSMArena. While those images were close to dreadful, there was at least a chance of them being fake, since the images were blurry and not really discernible.
Evan Blass has leaked a couple of images yesterday on his Twitter account, and it is pretty clear that Samsung Galaxy S7 Active is indeed a complete eyesore as far as smartphones go.
The color scheme of the phone in the leaked images is ghastly, with tacky patterns that are never going to stick with people with a decent taste in smartphones… or simply eyes, for that matter. While military-themed jackets or trousers might be in fashion, the same trend does not necessarily apply in the case of smartphones.
Moreover, while all previously leaked images displayed the AT&T (the Samsung S7 Active carrier) logo on the back, the new design shows an absence of the logo, reports The Verge.
Speculated to carry features such as a Snapdragon 820 chipset, 12MP camera, and 5.5″ QHD, maybe people are supposed to focus on the advanced specs instead of the disastrous appearance of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active.
It is not yet clear if this is indeed what the final Samsung S7 Active looks like, or if these are some separate international model being simultaneously marketed. The only thing clear is that the phones displayed in the images below belong in some remote desert or a battlefield, not in the hands of the regular crowd.
