That 4100 mAh Note5 battery? It may be in a Note5 Active, coming in November

Fortunately, the rumor might have been partially true. We just received tips that there will be a Galaxy Note5 Active model released in November on AT&T, and it will sport a 4100 mAh juicer, with all else staying true to the regular Note5. Our tipster points out that the durable phablet will have IP68 waterproofing certification, and arrive in week 46, which falls in the week of Monday, November 8th, just in time for your holiday shopping schedule.
The reason that we are relaying this arguably unconfirmed by a second source tip, is that Samsung did absolutely the same thing with the Galaxy S6 Active, releasing it with a much larger battery than the regular version, resulting in a stellar achievement on our battery life test of the device. This bodes well for the eventual Note5 Active's battery endurance, and yet, if the S6 Active is any indication, the phablet version won't sport the same premium glass design, but rather focus on drop test durability, a waterproof chassis, and longevity. We don't mind, as Samsung managed to stuff a large battery in a relatively slim chassis with the S6 Active, so hopefully the same will go for the claimed Note5 Active come this fall.
Thanks for the tip!

This strategy is ridiculous, I am going to buy note 5, and in November I will be pissed if active version is out, if I wait and active version is not out I still will be pissed.

The active won't look nearly as sexy and won't have a fingerprint scanner. Plus, a newer phone won't make your phone perform worse suddenly.

Also about being sexy, you will never use phone like that without case right, and I think S6 active version is much better that putting normal S6 in thick case. Same would be case for note, I don't think I would use note (pre ordered it, haven't received it yet) without the case.

I use my S6 with tempered glass on both sides. It fell 1 time and no dents or scratches. Also if it falls hard, the glass will protect the screen and break itself. I'll buy another tempered glass then. I'll never put a phone in an ugly plastic case. That defeats the whole point of build quality and feel in the hand.

Then stick to the note 5? or just wait a little bit longer? or buy both? or just get out more and socialize with people, rather than worrying about a phone not coming out when you want it to be.

F samsung !!!! The Note5 SHOULD have LAUNCHED with both a removable battery and SD, and not made of fragile glass. I waited months for the S6 active to fix these issues. The lack of a fingerprint scanner was ridiculous. Samsung FAILED again. LG G4 PRO here I come !!!!

yeah but if you wait until November, the regular Note 5 will be cheaper. I'm not sure why folks are rushing to buy the Note 5 right after release. Samsung is pushing the S6 Edge+ more than the Note 5. If the Note 5 flops, they will drop the price. Who wants to pay $800+ for the Note 5.

I am not sure there is a market for this because I can't see a profession where the GS6 active isn't enough and you need a stylus and waterproofing together. Structural engineer maybe but that's just one profession. Lol Oh well, whatever works for you Samsung.

I hope they make 10 variants of every flagship, every year. Couple reason's, 1. I like reading about how you 17 year old trolls know how to operate a billion dollar company better than they do. 2. Consumers have choices.
