AT&T

Releasing an Active version of their flagship Galaxy device has become a tradition for Samsung since the Galaxy S4, and it looks like this year is no exception.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Active SoC Exynos 7420 2.1/1.5GHz A57/A53 Memory and Storage 3GB LPDDR4-1552, 32GB NAND Display 5.1" 2560x1440 AMOLED Cellular Connectivity 2G / 3G / 4G LTE (Category 6 LTE) Dimensions ?
