By 03:46 Sun, 25 Jul 2021 Comments

That Samsung slip-up was as clear indication as any that it's coming, but the Galaxy S6 active is now finally official. The element-defying version of the Korean flagship was just unveiled as an AT&T exclusive in the US.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 active shares its 5.1" QHD Super AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) classy screen and Exynos 7420 chipset with the regular Galaxy S6, but adds IP68 and Mil-STD-810G-certified protection. That means you can submerge the handset to up to 1.5 meters for up to 30 minutes and it's completely dust-proof. You also acquire thermal and shock protection for additional piece of mind.

The Galaxy S6 active also brings another upgrade over its vanilla sibling - it comes with a 3,500 mAh battery - a substantial 40% increase in power and there's also built-in wireless charging. Unfortunately, rumors of a microSD card slot turned out unaccurate so you are limited to the 32GB of internal storage. It's also yet to be confirmed how much extra bulk the ruggedness and more spacious battery have added.
