Unlike the Galaxy S4 Active which saw an international release, or even the Galaxy S5 Active which saw two variants, the S6 Active has been an exclusive venture for Samsung and AT&T. Despite initial rumors that suggested the S6 Active would have microSD card support, the product that was produced doesn’t. This had, until now, meant that customers interested in the rugged smartphone needed to make due with just 32GB of on-board storage. Until now.
AT&T has just put up a 64GB variant of the Galaxy S6 Active for sale. It retails for $649.99 for those interested in purchasing the device off-contract. Alternatively, a 2-year carrier agreement will drop the price down to $299.99, and those qualified and interested in purchasing via AT&T Next can have the phone for installments of $23.17 per month.
For those in need of a recap, the S6 Active has essentially the same specs as Samsung’s Galaxy S6, but with a few improvements. It packs a 5.1-inch QHD Super AMOLED display, an Exynos 7420 SoC, 3GB of RAM, a 16-megapixel rear camera (no optical image stabilization) and a 5-megapixel front camera. Aside from being a thoroughly rugged device and water resistant, the phone also makes use of a 3,500 mAh battery to supplement its substance.
The S6 Active is sold in Grey, Camo White, and Camo Black and all three are now available in 64GB configurations.
