After what seemed like forever, AT&T has finally announced the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active. The announcement does not come by way of a press release, but rather the release of a video on YouTube which basically shows off the phone in all of its official glory, so unless this was by accident and the video gets taken down, we suppose you could look at it as an official unveiling of the device.
That being said, we know that the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active has been in the works for a while now. In fact a few days ago, AT&T sent out a tweet hinting that they had a new device in the works that was due for an announcement soon, which many had speculated could be the Galaxy S6 Active, and if this video is anything to go by we guess now we know.
As for the handset itself, there are really no surprises here. The rumors and leaks have pretty much confirmed all of it before, but in case you missed out on it here’s a quick recap. The Samsung Galaxy S6 Active will be a rugged device aimed at users who have a need for such a phone. It will feature a protective chassis and is IP68 certified, meaning that it is water resistant and dustproof.
The phone will feature a 5.1-inch QHD display and will be powered by Samsung’s Exynos 7420 processor and will pack a 16MP rear-facing camera, a 5MP front-facing camera, a 3,500mAh battery, and a quick launch button on its side that will launch apps in a single press. The phone will be released on the 12th of June where it will be priced at $199 with a 2-year contract, or you can choose AT&T’s Next plans which will cost $23.17 with the Next 24, $28.96 for the Next 18, or $34.75 with the Next 12.
