A few hours ago, a render of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active leaked out and it went live on Samsung’s official website for a brief moment, after which it was taken down. It seems Samsung is ready to make an announcement anytime and is readying to send out the press release.
Unsurprisingly, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active was listed with AT&T branding, complete with specs and manual. It features the same hardware as the Samsung Galaxy S6, the only difference being the rugged body of Galaxy S6 Active.
The model that was listed is SM-G890AZWAATT Samsung Galaxy S6 Active AT&T, Camo White color. It sports a 5.1-inch 2560 x 1440 Super AMOLED Quad HD display, weighing in at 138 grams having physical dimensions as 5.65″ x 2.78″ x 0.27″. The battery is 2550 mAh, debunking the earlier rumored 3,500 mAh unit.
Other specs like 3GB RAM, 32GB internal memory (non-expandable), an octa-core processor, 16 MP rear camera, a 5 MP front-facing camera and a heart rate monitor are common to both the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the S6 Active. It runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop, but we expect it to be upgraded to Android 5.1 soon after release.
For those of us feeling a little adventurous on the weekends, it comes with a dedicated Active button in the top left of the device. It triggers the Activity Zone app which includes barometer, weather, compass, and S Health information. The button can also be customized to perform other functions, such as taking photos.
There is no word from Samsung or AT&T on the pricing or availability of this device but we should hear about it soon.
