Every time a photo of Samsung’s Galaxy S7 Active leaks it gets uglier

Who is asking for this color scheme?


Two weeks ago, blurry photos of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7 Active in camo leaked, and it wasn't a particularly pleasant sight. Now we have an official shot of the S7 Active thanks to Evan Blass, and somehow Samsung and AT&T — which is the exclusive carrier of Samsung's Active line — have managed to make those camouflage shots look appealing in comparison.

This color scheme is truly awful in ways that just can't be accidental. I'm sure Samsung and AT&T will be targeting the military or defense contractors with this "desert camo" color, and a phone that looks like it would be at home in the desert could be appealing in some way, but they could've tried a bit harder to make it even remotely appealing to people who don't spend the bulk of their time in 120 degree weather.

Hopefully a simple black or white version is in the works.
