Samsung Galaxy S6 Active shows up in Bluetooth SIG database
The Samsung Galaxy S6 Active was just spotted in the official Bluetooth SIG database. In the past few weeks, we've heard quite a few times about this "Active" version of the Galaxy S6, but this is the first official document that mentions the smartphone. Although the Bluetooth SIG database doesn't mention the name of the device, the listing is for a Samsung smartphone codenamed SM-G890A, which corresponds to the previous leaks and rumors regarding AT&T's version of the Galaxy S6 Active.

According to a leaked user agent profile, the Galaxy S6 Active (SM-G890A) will come with a display running at 1440 by 2560 pixels. Rumors claim that the S6 Active will retain most of the hardware specs available on the standard version of the Galaxy S6, such as a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED panel, an Exynos 7420 chipset, 3GB of RAM, a 16MP primary camera, and a 5MP secondary shooter. In terms of dimensions, the S6 Active is expected to be a bit thicker and larger than the Galaxy S6 and the S6 edge. On the upside, the new Galaxy S6 version is said to come with a large 3500mAh battery, and maybe even a microSD card slot and a removable battery as well. As with all "Active" versions of Galaxy S flagships, the new device is expected to come with protection against water and dust.

Usually when a smartphone gets its certifications, it's a sign that an official unveiling is not far off. Previous rumors claimed that the Galaxy S6 Active will launch at some point this summer.

Hopefully, it will look better than the current active model. Specs sure sound awesome. Earlier PA wrote sth about active having worse camera, etc.

The only thing I'm skeptical about here is the 3500mAh battery. It's possible, but I doubt it will be that big. Will be a great option for many people regardless.

are you one of those guys who puts music on high volume on the trains and annoy people? if not then there is no use for them.

the s6 is louder than the m9 but for clarity, the m9 is louder.

so music is the only reason to use speakers, and trains are the only place you can play said music? come on dude.

actually i agree with him, i love the boomsound speakers on my m8 when im playing games or watching vidoes. its such a difference when i play world of tanks on my m8 vs. playing it on my ipad mini

mono speakers are dumb

the thing is it's not about having two speakers, as you can't get stereo effect anyway as the sound is coming from the direction. it's just about the quality of the speakers (and frontward facing is gonna make a big difference too).

So you're waiting for a phone that's water proof for an indefinite amount of time and at high pressure depths?

Good luck waiting.

If above rumors are true and device is made available in more countries, than the response may be overwhelming. Many people (including myself) will prefer more durable plastic back over relatively fragile glass. There would be so many people who will go for better functionality over beauty. Also removable battery and waterproofing is quite desirable if not must. If I get device 2mm thicker than S6 but with 3500 mAh battery, I would happily accept extra bulk. Let's see what other people say in comment.

The fragile glass you are talking about is gorilla glass 4. BTW its not fragile at all. Look up a YouTube video that shows a girl smashing her S6 phone into the ground. It didn't break at all.

It looks more like the specs of Galaxy Note 5 then that of S6 active, isn't it?

We All hope that Samsung as learnt from the Mistakes they made with the Galaxy s6 with just the iPhone 6 in the Thoughts,as you should be really Trying to Please the Galaxy phones users,People will not be bothered if the phone is Bulkier than the others,if it offers a Battery of this Size and its Removable as Well,i bet we miss out on the Glass Back but whos bothered when the Cases people buy always cover the Back anyway

UFS + microSD should be a great Combination

It just needs to be the same as the S6 except a slight bit thicker and metal back.

What to say i know that a S6 sth would show up soon better than S6 it self.
Wonder what the next S6 sth would be. Not greater definitely.

I will always take durable plastic over glass or metal... S6 looks good and all but in expense of battery life and sdcard???nah...this thing seems to the best of the year for me....

If it has a finger print reader I will 100% buy this phone if it doesnt then I 100% wont buy this phone. The S5 was waterproof and has finger print reader so no reason to remove it...

But the active will probably be more expensive :-(
