Accidentally Revealed Galaxy S6 Active Features Removed by Samsung
Giving an impression that it was an unintended leak, Samsung has removed the support page listing specs of its upcoming AT&T Galaxy S6 Active.
The disappearance of the “accidentally” published page, with specifications of its much anticipated smartphone, makes little difference to internet websites who have already grasped the essence of what its next flagship will offer.
News sources have observed that Galaxy S6 Active is not bringing many novel features; many of its features will overlap with those of Galaxy S6.
Prior to the ephemeral publication from the smartphone maker itself, some of the non-official leaks suggested that the South Korean company was likely to encase a bigger removable battery and a microSD slot in its future high-end handset. However the support page contradicts these reports.
According to the removed support page, Samsung will maintain the 2500mAh battery, no microSD slot, and fingerprint scanner. It also tells that the dimensions of new arrival will be identical to the regular Galaxy S6.
The only distinctive feature of the Galaxy S6 Active will be its Ingress Protection(IP) Rating. The aforesaid handset tops the class with its IP68 rating. For perspective, Galaxy S5 Active boasted an IP67 grade.
As per the other features, there is hardly anything different than what we have in the Galaxy S6–same octa-core Exynos CPU, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage, and 5.1-inch 2560×1440 QHD display. And the sameness persists in cameras as well: the Galaxy S6 has 16 megapixel f/1.9 rear camera and 5 megapixel front shooter; the Galaxy S6 Active will have 16 megapixel f/1.9 rear camera and 5 megapixel front shooter.
