AT&T has finally taken the hint and launched the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active after a plethora of leaks spanning across two weeks. Earlier today, we saw AT&T posting a video showcasing the highlights and features of the smartphone, which was an indication of things to come.
Interested customers will be able to purchase the handset on the 12th of June, which is this Friday. So the carrier is not wasting any time in bringing this device to the American customers.
At this point, it seems like the Galaxy S6 Active will remain an exclusive to the U.S., so interested customers across the world will be terribly out of luck if they want to get the ruggedized version of the Galaxy S6.
The handset will be available for purchase from a variety of AT&T Next plans:
- $23.17 via the Next 24 plan (30 monthly payments)
- $28.96 via the Next 18 plan (24 monthly payments)
- $34.75 via the Next 12 plan (20 monthly payments)
This accounts to an off contract pricing of about $695.10, which isn’t all that much for a device of this caliber. Now for the all important question – what’s different with the Galaxy S6 Active? It has the same 5.1 inch Quad HD display, the Exynos 7420 octa core SoC, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, 16-megapixel camera on the back. a 5-megapixel front camera, Android 5.0.2 Lollipop and a 3,500 mAh battery.
Basically, it has all the same hardware from the Galaxy S6 along with IP68 certification for dust and water resistance (up to 1.5 meter and 30 minutes). The device also has a MIL-STD-810G certified – salt, dust, humidity, rain, vibration, solar radiation, transport and thermal shock resistance.
