For protection the smartphone is surrounded by an additional frame instead of the glass back of the S6. The shock, dust and water resistant smartphone is designed to withstand drops from 4 feet or less and can be submerged into 1.5 meters of water for up to 30 minutes. The company has also removed the single home button, capacitive keys as well as the fingerprint sensor in favor of three hardware buttons.

It comes with inbuilt accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass, heart rate and barometer sensors. It has a non expandable 32 GB internal memory. The smartphone has a 16 MP rear-facing camera with LED Flash and a 5 MP front camera. The smartphone is available in white camo, blue camo, and gray color variants.

Apart from the Galaxy S6 Active, Samsung is also reportedly planning to launch the bigger Galaxy S6 Plus.
