AT&T Announces The Galaxy S6 Active

AT&T has just announced the impending arrival of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active. An impressive IP68 rated device, with a sturdy looking body and mechanical buttons in lieu of their capacitive counterparts. The device also features a 3,500 mAh battery, that is almost an extra 40% on top of the regular S6’s battery capacity.

 

The IP68 rating means that the device is water-resistant up to 1.5 meters for up to 30 minutes, is able to withstand dust, vibrations, temperatures and is shock resistant when dropped from 4 feet or less on to a flat surface. The body has clearly received a rugged overhaul and now appears to protrude from the back of the device several mm, it is yet to be seen whether this will affect the device’s performance when charging wirelessly; it is clear that Samsung do not believe it will.

Apart from the Activity Zone app that features a compass, flashlight and stopwatch, the device from here appears to be identical to the Samsung Galaxy S6, with a 5.1″ super AMOLED display and 16MP/5MP cameras. As always we will keep you updated as more details including prices are announced. Until then check out AT&Ts product page here.
