The Galaxy S6 Active will be quite an impressive handset if these leaked specs turn out to be the real deal.
For the most part, according to Sam Mobile’s "insider sources," the Galaxy S6 Active and Galaxy S6 will be comparable. The Galaxy S6 Active will have the same 5.1-inch QHD Super AMOLED screen, an octa-core Exynos 7420 processor, 3GB RAM, a 16MP rear-facing camera and a 5MP camera on the front.
But the Galaxy S6 Active has a leg up on the Galaxy S6 in two very important areas: battery and water resistance. The Galaxy S6 Active will have a 3,500mAh battery, compared to the Galaxy S6’s 2,500mAh battery. Meanwhile, it will be water and dust resistant, though the level of protection wasn’t revealed.
The bigger battery means that Samsung’s rugged handset will be a little beefier. It will be 73.6 x 146.9 x 8.8mm in size, making it a little bigger and thicker than the Galaxy S6.
