Samsung to release waterproof Galaxy S6 variant

Samsung Galaxy S6The Samsung Galaxy S6 is known for its stylish design which, unlike last year’s flagship, does not include the ability to resist the ingress of water or dust particles. But thankfully, those who are in need of a more rugged device will be able to invest in the upcoming Galaxy S6 Active, the first images and details of which have appeared online.

GSM Arena reports that as well as being waterproof and dustproof, the Galaxy S6 Active will be endowed with a microSD memory card slot, a feature which some people see as being sorely missed from the standard Galaxy S6 and the S6 Edge.

Furthermore, the rugged design of the S6 Active has allowed Samsung to take even more liberties with the tech under the bonnet and this version may come with a large 3500mAh battery, if early indications are to be believed.

The design of the S6 Active will reflect its rugged ambitions, with a body that is built to withstand physical impacts and abrasions, as well as liquid spills and adverse climates. So it will be interesting to see whether fans of older Galaxy S models flock to this device.
