It looks like Evan Blass (aka @evleaks) has come out of retirement, as the leak master has revealed two press renders of the camouflage Samsung Galaxy S6 Active.
As we mentioned before, the sensors on the S6 Active are positioned just like that on the regular S6. The speakers, however, have been moved to the back of the smartphone. Moreover, the rugged buttons suggest that it doesn’t have a touch-based fingerprint sensor.
Other than that, everything else under the hood is likely to be the same. The Galaxy S6 Active is likely to sport a 5-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD) and a pixel density of 577 ppi, a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera with optical image stabilisation (OIS) (some units ship with cameras made by Samsung, while some units ship with cameras made by Sony), a 5-megapixel front-facing selfie-centric camera, 32/64/128 GB of internal storage, Samsung’s Exynos 7420 64-bit octa-core processor with four cores clocked at 2.1 GHz and four cores clocked at 1.5 GHz, 3 GB of DDR4 RAM, LTE Cat.6 (300/50Mbps) connectivity, support for wireless charging, and a 3,500 mAh battery (the S6 sports a 2,550 mAh battery). It runs Android 5.0 (Lollipop) out of the box with a 64-bit TouchWiz UI slapped on top.
As for the S6 Active’s dimensions, we still don’t have that info, but it is sure to be bulkier and heavier than the S6, which measures 143.4 x 70.5 x 6.8 mm and weighs in at 138 g.
Like the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active, the S6 Active bears the AT&T (US network operator) logo, which means it may only be offered in the US via the said carrier, just like its predecessor.
