Samsung by chance reveals the Galaxy S7 Lively

Samsung accidentally reveals the Galaxy S7 Active Samsung's Galaxy S6 Lively.

A Samsung app has leaked the existence of a brand new smartphone from the corporate, the Galaxy S7 Lively. The beforehand unknown telephone seems in an extended listing of supported units within the Google Play itemizing for the Samsung Degree app, noticed by SamMobile.

The Lively vary of Galaxy telephones was born out of necessity. It first appeared in 2013 as a water-proof, ruggedized model of the corporate’s then-flagship Galaxy S4. Every iteration of the “S” line since has been accompanied by an Lively variant.

Drawback is, Samsung added one of many Lively vary’s foremost attracts — water and mud resistance — to its common Galaxy S7. Assuming the S7 Lively truly exists, Samsung might want to focus its advertising on the rugged casing, or maybe shoot for an elevated IP score for shock or water resistance.

One other promoting level of earlier Lively fashions was elevated battery capability (the S6 Lively had a three,500mAh battery instead of the common S6’s 2,800mAh). It is doubtless Samsung will supply longer battery life with the S7 Lively, however endurance is far much less of an issue with the S7 than with earlier fashions. The ultimate distinction between the units — aside from general bulk — will in all probability be hardware buttons: the Lively vary has historically had three arduous buttons under its display, relatively than one arduous and two capacitive.

We have reached out to Samsung for touch upon the S7 Lively, however do not anticipate the corporate to verify the system’s existence till it is prepared to take action.
