Industry insiders revealed the specs of the handset that is similar in most aspecs to the Galaxy S6 and that AT&T will be one of the first carriers to get it.

Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge may not be the perfect flagships for a lot of fans who expected more and who totally hate the lack of a microSD slot and a user-replaceable battery. On the other hand pre-orders from carriers broke all previous records, and those who want a flagship with waterproof body should soon be able to get the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active.

Next to the memory slot and the replaceable battery, previous generation Galaxy handsets offered IP67-certified protection from dust and water. The Galaxy S6 Active will have most specs of the Galaxy S6, but it will also offer protection from the elements. According to SamMobile's inside sources, the Galaxy S6 Active (SM-G890A) will have the same 5.1-inch QHD Super AMOLED+ display as its sibling, Exynos 7420 SoC, 3 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage, as well as the 16 MP/5 MP camera combo.

If protection from water and dust is not enough, the generous 3,500 mAh battery definitely looks attractive, although this makes the Galaxy S6 Active slightly bulkier than the Galaxy S6. As revealed by the model number SM-G890A, AT&T should be one of the first carriers to receive it. We will get back to this topic as soon as we hear more, as the official news should show up anytime now.

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.
