[Updated] Samsung Galaxy S6 Active possibly caught in the wild


Last updated: May 13th, 2015 at 17:55 UTC+02:00

It was back in March when we exclusively reported the Galaxy S6 Active’s specifications and the fact that it will initially be launched on AT&T in the United States. We later found out that the handset, SM-G890A, could feature a microSD card slot which is sorely being missed by many on the Galaxy S6. The device was recently spotted in AT&T’s inventory list after it first received the obligatory Bluetooth certification. Today two images of what’s claimed to be the Galaxy S6 Active have been leaked online, possibly offering us the first look at the Galaxy S6’s rugged sibling.

The sturdy and rugged build of this device is evident from the images and that’s to be expected from an Active variant, it does appear to stick with the same rear camera and heart rate monitor layout that you find on the Galaxy S6. The loudspeaker does appear to have been moved to the back, and there’s no fingerprint sensor either which isn’t surprising since the Galaxy S5 Active didn’t have it as well. As we reported exclusively, the Galaxy S6 Active will have a 5.1-inch QHD Super AMOLED+ display with an Exynos 7420 SoC underneath coupled with 3GB RAM and 32GB of onboard storage. Measuring 73.6 x 146.9 x 8.8 mm the handset is going to have a 16-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front camera with a 3500mAh battery.

The handset is expected to be MIL-STD-810G certified, which means that it will be resistant to dust, humidity, rain, salt, vibration, solar radiation as well as transport and thermal shock. Samsung is likely to officially unveil the Galaxy S6 Active in the coming weeks.


Update: @evleaks just leaked the press renders of the Galaxy S6 Active, it does look similar to what you see above.
