Samsung confirms the Galaxy S6 Active, specs included
Samsung is now showcasing the Galaxy S6 Active (including its specs) on its official website, despite the fact that the company has yet to issue a press release to announce the handset.

Just as expected, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active runs Android Lollipop, and sports a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED screen with 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD). The handset is powered by an octa-core Exynos 7420 processor, it has 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory, and it looks like - similar to the regular S6 - it doesn't support microSD cards. Other features that the S6 Active is sharing with the regular S6 include heart rate monitor, a 16 MP rear camera, a 5 MP front-facing camera, and a 2550 mAh battery.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 Active is dust- and water-resistant (IP68-certified), and you can submerge it in water up to 1.5 meters for 30 minutes. Furthermore, the new Galaxy comes with an Activity Zone app, which can be accessed via a dedicated Active key that's found on the left side of the device. Activity Zone includes stuff like barometer, stopwatch, compass, weather information, and a shortcut to the S Health app.

The Galaxy S6 Active that Samsung is currently showing on its website is made for AT&T, which will likely release it in the near future. There's no word on how much the new handset will cost, but we should soon find out more about this.

Update: Samsung removed the Galaxy S6 Active page from its website, which means it must have been posted my mistake.
