The Samsung Galaxy S6 active is official, packs 3,500mAh battery and IP68 shell


Samsung Galaxy S6 Active

It’s been a long time coming  but the Samsung Galaxy S6 active is finally official. The specifications are hardly a mystery and are more or less the same as the regular Galaxy S6. The principle differences of course are that the phone is water resistant up to 1.5 metres due to the IP68 certified casing. Additionally, the handset is shock resistant, dust proof. A major improvement is the inclusion of a much larger 3,500 mAh battery that should allow for greater autonomy while using the handset. 

Samsung Galaxy S6 active specifications

  • 5.1-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display with 577ppi
  • 16MP rear-facing and 5MP front-facing cameras
  • Android 5.0.2 (Lollipop)
  • Exynos 7420 Octa-core 64-bit processor with 3GB RAM

  • Outdoor Features: Activity Zone is the ideal companion for outdoor adventures, and includes a quick launching compass, flashlight, stopwatch, and more.
