    We knew that this device was coming and that it would be an AT&T exclusive and now that has been formally confirmed by America's second largest mobile carrier. AT&T today announced the Galaxy S6 Active, interestingly the announcement didn't come through a press release instead the company uploaded a video on its official YouTube page to let us all know that the Galaxy S6 Active has arrived.

    As expected, the Galaxy S6 Active has a 5.1-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display and the 64-bit Exynos 7420 octa-core processor underneath. There's 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, 16-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front camera as well as a 3500mAh battery. It includes a quick launch action button on its side which can be used to bring up the compass, flashlight or other features from the device's Activity Zone. The Galaxy S6 Active is IP68 certified which makes it water and dust resistant, it features protective casing which safeguards the device against drops. Contrary to popular belief the handset does not appear to have a removable battery or a microSD card slot. Wireless charging is present though.

    Customers can purchase the Galaxy S6 Active from AT&T from June 12 online or through the carrier's stores across the United States. It will be available in Camo Blue, Camo White and Gray for $199 with a two year service contract. Customers can also go with the AT&T Next plan where they will have to pay $23.17 per month for 30 instalments, $29.96 per month for 24 instalments and $34.75 for 20 instalments on AT&T Next 24, Next 18 and Next 12 respectively.
