s6 active

The Galaxy S6 Active was made official by AT&T earlier this week following several leaks, and now the company has made the much-anticipated rugged S6 variant available on its online store…

As was detailed in the company’s press release, the phone—internally, at least—is very similar to the standard S6 and S6 Edge. The handset runs Android 5.0.2 Lollipop, packs an Exynos 7420 64-bit octa-core processor, 32GB of internal storage, and a 5.1″ Super AMOLED display with a resolution 1440 x 2560 and pixel density of 577 ppi.

On the outside, there are some notable differences. With IP68 certification, the phone’s rugged design brings dust-proofing and water-resistance. You’ll also find three physical buttons on the front of the phone, in contrast to one physical button and the two touch buttons on the standard S6 and S6 Edge.

You have several options to pick from in terms of pricing. You can go with the $200 flat fee on a two-year contract, AT&T Next 24 for $23.17 per month, AT&T Next 18 for $28.96 per month, or AT&T Next 12 for $34.75. Alternatively, you can go with no annual contract for $694.99.
