The ruggerdized Galaxy S6 Active goes official on AT&T
This year, Samsung turned the tables by introducing the Galaxy S6 which incorporates a premium look and feel but what happened to the IP58 rating of the Galaxy S5. Well, Samsung has the solution and they're calling it the Galaxy S6 Active but it looks nothing like the original Galaxy S6 and the fact that it's an AT&T device means that it is currently a US exclusive device.
Despite the camouflage look that Samsung painted on the Galaxy S6 Active, the device is still pretty much a Galaxy S6 deep down. The Galaxy S6 Active is still powered by Samsung's new Exynos octa core CPU and the gorgeous 5.1" Super AMOLED 1440 X 2560 display is still included in the package. Also identical is the 16MP f1.9 camera which can still be activated via the double tap home button gesture.
All of this is packaged into a MIL-STD 810G chassis that is IP68 rated meaning that you'll be able to bring it down for a undersea expedition. Despite dropping the fingerprint scanning home button on the Galaxy S6 Active, a dedicated Activity Zone button on the left of the device will launch select apps in a flash.
AT&T will be offering the Galaxy S6 Active starting this Friday (June 12) for $199 with a 2 year contract or as low as $23.17 a month with the AT&T's Next 24 plan
