Having suffered images of a new smartphone which is tipped to be the follow-on version of the Galaxy S6 leaked out to the press, Samsung has finally confirmed the existence of the device in its web page which gave details of Samsung Plus, a value-added reward points program for Samsung's smartphones and tablets.
At first look, the device seems to be of the same size as the flagship Galaxy S6, but with extra metal/plastic additions in its edges that gives it a more rugged appearance. The first images were shared by @evleaks who is known for leaking images and specs of upcoming devices on Twitter.
The device also contains three physical Home, Back and Multi-Window buttons which denote that Samsung haven't spared a fingerprint sensor slot for it as yet.
So far, there has been no further updates on the internal specifications of the new gadget, though GSM Arena have relied on a source to state that the S6 Active could sport a 3500 mAH battery as against the 2650 mAH battery in the Galaxy S6.
Even if Samsung decides to keep the rest of the specifications untouched, the Galaxy S6 Active could still turn out to be a formidable device with a much-longer battery life than its predecessor.
Samsung has also shirked from announcing any further details like prices, colour options, variants or the release date of the new device in the UK or anywhere else. It is, however, possible that it may release the device around September when the iPhone 6S will be up for sale.
