Days after the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge smartphones were unveiled to the public, online sources have started speculations on a possible arrival of a rugged S6 version called S6 Active. If such a smartphone ever gets released, it will follow Samsung’s trend of releasing flagship smartphones with various protections.
The rumored Galaxy S6 Active is known under the SM-G890A code name and is said to have numerous changes when compared to the “regular” Galaxy S6. The first major change will be a larger display – the S6 Active will come with a 5.5-inch display, up from the 5.1-inch one featured in the “regular” S6. The 5.5-inch display will work at 2560 x 1440 pixels, which is the same resolution as in the Galaxy S6. In addition as any other rugged smartphone, the S6 Active will be protected against dust, water, shock and more.
The rest of the specs of the S6 Active are still to be seen. There’s also no information on when we will be able to get the S6 Active but the smartphone, if it is real, should appear sometime this year.
