Exclusive: Samsung Galaxy S6 Active specifications confirmed, AT&T gets first taste

Fans of Samsung didn’t have much to complain about the Galaxy S6 (and the S6 edge) apart from the fact that neither of the two phones didn’t feature waterproof bodies, something that the previous gen flagships did have on offer. However, as expected, Samsung is indeed working on bringing the waterproof feature (among other rugged use-centric features) to the Galaxy S6, but via the Galaxy S6 Active.

According to our insider sources, the Galaxy S6 Active (SM-G890A) will have the same 5.1 inch QHD Super AMOLED+ display that the ‘regular’ version of the Galaxy S6 features. Besides that, the device will feature pretty much the same set of specifications as the Galaxy S6 itself, including the Exynos 7420 SoC, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of on-board storage and a 16-megapixel / 5-megapixel camera combo. What will change though, are the dimensions (but obvious), which will now read 73.6 x 146.9 x 8.8 mm (as opposed to 70.5 x 143.4 x 6.8 mm of the Galaxy S6), and the battery size, which will be upgraded to 3500mAh.

As the model number (SM-G890A) states, the phone will show up first on AT&T networks.

Some great info on unboxing, battery life by a Samsung trainer available in youtube.
Points to note are battery seems to last a day, camera response time is great, and the new earbuds are there in the package. Enjoy!

“the battery size, which will be upgraded to 3500mAh.”
Sounds good. Makes this the only worthy S6 variant imho. Powerful, lasts better and tougher. Could probably go a lot further w/ custom AOSP ROMs but this being an Exynos device well…

Charge for days? It charges 4 hours of use in 10 minutes.

decent battery like suppose to be in s6 and s6 edge just didn’t want to make chunky look, but for active will be fine.
