Samsung Galaxy S6 Active shows up again - launch imminent?

The new renders show a black/grey version of the Galaxy S6 Active, which is obviously different from the blue camo and white camo variants that we saw last month.
The Galaxy S6 Active borrows design elements from last year's S5 Active, which means it's not the most appealing smartphone around. Needless to say, this is a device that's made to be tough and water-resistant, not beautiful. Specs-wise, the S6 Active is relatively similar to the regular Galaxy S6. It doesn't have a fingerprint scanner, but it's said that it comes with a microSD card slot. The handset should also offer a 5.1-inch Quad HD display, a 16 MP rear camera, heart rate monitor, an octa-core Exynos 7420 processor, and 3 GB of RAM.
AT&T could become the first carrier to sell the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active. Would you buy one?

I will buy this if it has a removable battery and is on Verizon. But, the lack of a fingerprint scanner is a FAIL and it BETTER be $100 less than the S6 that DOES have a fingerprint scanner.

1. It's likely an att exclusive as were previous active models 2. Fingerprint scanners are more fragile than the hardware keys and would defeat the purpose of a rugged phone 3. No way the rugged version of a flagship phone will be for anything less than $200, so keep dreaming You sound really uppity. Relax

Surely Samsung won't repeat the stupid mistake they did last year with the S5 Active, whose camera bump is completely unprotected and is in constant contact with whatever surface the phone is resting on, thus ensuring that the supposedly rugged phone's most critical component is the one that is most damaged in routine use. Alas, it looks like Samsung learned nothing.
