The first Samsung smartphone for the masses to feature both water and dust resistance was the Galaxy S5. Launched back in 2014, it was followed by a rugged version made for AT&T, dubbed Galaxy S5 Active. The Samsung Galaxy S6 Active arrived last year, and now it looks like an upgrade is in the works already. 

A shipping document spotted on Zauba reveals that a new Galaxy Active has been imported to India for testing. The model number of this upcoming handset is SM-G891A while the Galaxy S6 Active already on the market is known as SM-G890A. According to the same source mentioned above, the price of a SM-G891A smartphone is roughly $360 USD.

While both the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge come with resistance from water and dust, their bodies can still be damaged quite easy due to the combination of metal and glass used. What remains to be seen is how rugged will be the new Active smartphone (Galaxy S6 Active (2016) or maybe even Galaxy S7 Active, it has no official name at this stage) and if its price makes it attractive enough.

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.
