Galaxy S6 Active
Galaxy S6 Active specifications and manuals briefly spotted on Samsung's website, official announcement on the cards Samsung

Samsung's Galaxy S6 Active has been briefly spotted in the official product listing on the company's website, according to a recent report by Droid-Life.

It is ascertained that the product listing with AT&T carrier branding clearly showcased the hardware specifications of the handset alongside some user manuals on the Samsung website, before the page was eventually taken down for some reason.

It seems the Galaxy S6 Active is not yet ready for announcement or launch, as neither Samsung nor AT&T has said anything about the probable launch or release date for the forthcoming flagship phone that features the same hardware configuration as the standard Galaxy S6.

Some of the leaked specifications for the Galaxy S6 Active (as seen on the website) include a 5.1in Quad HD Super AMOLED display, an octa-core Exynos 7420 processor paired with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage memory, a 16 megapixel (MP) rear camera and a 5MP front camera.

Powered by a non-removable 2,550mAh battery, the S6 Active will run Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box, suggests the leak.

In addition, the S6 Active is purported to be both water and dust-resistant with a new IP rating (IP68) that makes the handset water-proof up to 1.5m of submersion in water for 30 minutes.

The handset is said to feature an Active key like its predecessor, the Galaxy S5 Active, which allows users to perform underwater functions with the camera through Activity Zone app which is capable of relaying info about Barometer, Weather, Compass, and S Health, besides capturing photos under water via the dedicated shooting mode.

There is still no word about the handset's availability or of pricing details at the moment. However, given the context of this leak, the release date for the handset seems closer than ever.
