samsung galaxy s6 active official

Samsung leaked the details on their site and AT&T even teased the phone on Twitter, but now it’s 100% official: this is the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active, and it’s headed to store shelves in time for summer fun.

So what are we getting? Basically everything we’ve already heard about. The specs list should be the same as the one Samsung had on their website, but AT&T’s promo page has an updated listing for battery: it’s 3,500mAh instead of the 2,550mAh Samsung accidentally listed. This should assuage fears by many that the Galaxy S6 Active won’t have enough juice to truly last you an entire day (and then some).

Everything else is still accurate:

  • 5.1-inch 2560 x 1440 Super AMOLED display
  • Octa-Core Exynos 7420 chipset (2.1GHz and 1.5GHz cores)
  • 32GB of UFS 2.0 storage
  • 16MP rear camera with 4K video recording, 5MP front camera
  • Bluetooth 4.1, WiFi ac Dual-Band MIMO, GPS, NFC, Heart Rate Sensor, Infrared Blaster
  • 5.65 x 2.78 x 0.27 inches , 138g
  • 3,500mAh battery
  • Android 5.0.2 Lollipop
  • Activity Zone app that brings together Weather, Barometer, S Health and more

We also now know that the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active has been rated MIL-STD-810G, which is military-grade protection from drops, resistance to water and dustproof (all of which combine for a top-tier IP68 certification).

So, you’ll be able to grab one for $0 down on AT&T Next for $23.17 with 30 device payments on Next 24, $28.96 per month at 24 payments on Next 18, or $34.75 per month at 20 payments on Next 12.

Unfortunately AT&T still didn’t have anything to share in regards to availability, but with the phone officially out for the world to see we reckon it won’t take long to get those details. In the meantime let us know if the improved battery has restored your interest in grabbing one of these.

[Update]: AT&T has reached out to confirm that the device will be available starting June 12th.
