As we expected, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S6 Active today, the company's rugged version of its flagship smartphone. The device has been widely tipped to land soon, and it was listed on the company's website late last week, only to be removed shortly after. However, while the listing seems to have been premature.As we expected, the handset will be an exclusive with AT&T in the United States and will roll out in other regions too. The flagship-esque smartphone comes with a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED screen, and it's even the same Quad HD panel found in the Galaxy S6 proper. The other specs also match the Galaxy S6 flagship, with an Exynos 7420 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a 16 megapixel rear camera, and a 5 megapixel front facing lens. The device will rock Android Lollipop out of the box and has been ruggedized to withstand more than the ordinary GS6 would. It is water-resistant up to 1.5 meters for 30 minutes and comes with an Activity Zone app which features a stopwatch, compass, barometer, weather information, and a fast track to Samsung S Health suite. The body has also been bulked up to handle a bit more abuse, but needless to say you should still not be throwing it down the stairs.
