Samsung Galaxy S6 Active coming to AT&T in May?

Samsung Galaxy S6 Active coming to AT&T in May?
Another day, another unannounced Samsung device shows up out of nowhere. Its model number is SM-G890A, and it sounds like an immediate successor to the SM-G870A, which corresponded to the Galaxy S5 Active on AT&T (pictured below). Thus, this might be an AT&T Galaxy S6 Active, which is pretty much in line with what we expect from Samsung. 

The device's User Agent Profile describes a Quad-HD resolution display like that of the Galaxy S6 & S6 Edge, but it doesn't give out clues to any new features. However, it's a sure bet that the Galaxy S6 Active will be protected from water and dust, possibly at the cost of design elegance. The eventual announcement could happen in May.

For those who really need water resistance and dust resistance. For the "normal" guy every day use, you don't need the protection of the Active series, but something along the lines of Xperia Z would be a nice mandatory feature in the industry. ESPECIALLY in Smartbands/Watches.

Why need an Active series, if Sony can deliver design and durability in a single piece?

Bc Samsung loves flooding the market. Dropped my Z2 without case on once while in the shower from my eye level (roughly 5' 6"), not a scratch.... but it did give me a heart attack haha
