Android handset with codename SM-G890A, apparently the Galaxy S6 Active, has been spotted in the Bluetooth SIG database.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Active has been in the rumor mill for a while, but its launch still has to be officially confirmed. According to the leaks and rumors that made it online so far, it appears that Galaxy S6 Active will be a rugged, waterproof handset that will bring back one of the features left aside by both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, namely the microSD card slot.

Samsung SM-G890A is a smartphone that has recently got its certification from Bluetooth SIG, and it appears to be the rumored Galaxy S6 Active. Unfortunately, this Bluetooth SIG listing does not reveal any details concerning the technical specs of the handset - for example, the availability of a microSD slot or the chipset model.

Older reports mentioned earlier also revealed a few specs, most of them expected to be the same as those of the Galaxy S6 flagship - 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display, Exynos 7420 SoC coupled with 3 GB RAM, but also a generous 3,500 mAh battery that should offer much better autonomy than the 2,550 mAh power pack of its parent.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
