It’s water resistant, where the original isn’t and it also has a much bigger battery, up to 3500mAh, as opposed to the S6’s 2550mAh.
For those of you that have been waiting for a shock, dust and water resistant version of the Galaxy S6, your wait is over. Samsung has created a much tougher and uglier model of the its flagship the Galaxy S6.
Announced on Tuesday as an AT&T exclusive, it will be offered starting from June 12, starting at $23.17 per month on the Next 24 plan, in comparison to the Galaxy S6’s $22.84. Basically, the total is just shy of $700.
It will be available in three models, white camo, blue camo and gray. Now I’m not entirely sure why Samsung thinks that everyone that wants a more sturdy phone wants it to be butt ugly as well, but I’m here to inform Samsung and the world that blue and white camo is not a thing, nor will it ever be. We would have liked this phone a lot better if it came with its original colors.
As for the specs, however, this is still a top-notch flagship. It’s water resistant, where the original isn’t, even though the Galaxy S5 was. It also has a much bigger battery, up to 3500mAh, as opposed to the S6’s 2550mAh.
It has the same 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display that features a pixel density of 577 pixels per inch. It also has an amazing 16 megapixel back snapper paired with a 5 megapixel front snapper. On deck is the whopping octacore Exynos processor that speeds along at 2.1GHz. It runs Android 5.0.2 Lollipop, and it will come with a Fingerprint sensor and Samsung Pay.
