The Samsung Galaxy S6 Active is an Android smartphone produced by Samsung Electronics for the AT&T network. As variant of the Samsung Galaxy S6, the S6 Active contains similar specifications, but it also features waterproofing, shockproofing and dustproofing designed around the IP68 specifications, along with a more rugged design; it was released on 12 June 2015.
The S6 Active was first released in the United States by AT&T on 12 June 2015 in the gray, camo-blue, and camo-white colors; its model number is SM–G890A.
The S6 Active inherits most of its hardware components from the Galaxy S6, including an identical octa-core processor, 3 GB of RAM, and a 5.1-inch display. It uses the same display type as the S6, and has a 16 megapixel camera. Its hardware design is similar to the S6, except it is slightly thicker, has metallic rivets, and uses three physical navigation keys instead of a physical home key and capacitive back/menu keys like the S6. The S6 Active launched with similar software to the S6, Android 5.0.2 with TouchWiz. At 3,500 mAh, its battery has a greater capacity than the S6, and retains wireless-charging support. It has an additional app when compared to the S6, Activity Zone, which provides quick access to a compass, flashlight, stopwatch and weather.
