While the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are clearly ahead of their direct competitors in most aspects (fingerprint scanner, DDR4 memory, wireless charging, extremely fast UFS 2.0 internal storage), a lot of consumers miss the microSD slot. More than just microSD support, the new Samsung flagships also dropped water resistance and the removable battery. Fortunately, it looks like the upcoming Galaxy S6 Active will bring them all back.

The new rugged smartphone from the Galaxy S6 family has been in the rumor mill for a while, and this is not the first time to find out about its specs. On the other hand, it seems that the Reddit report mentioned by Phandroid's article (link at the end) is the first piece of inside information allegedly coming from a Samsung rep. This source claims S6 Active will drop the fingerprint reader and heart rate sensor, but will bring back the microSD memory card slot.

In addition to the above, the Samsung insider revealed that Galaxy S6 Active will have weaker cameras than the regular S6 and should launch this summer. However, he also confirmed that development is not complete yet, so changes may still occur. We will keep you posted as we hear more.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
