Although consumers around the world have got their hands on the new Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, talk about the specs of the Galaxy S6 Active, a rugged version of the device, has not quite settled down. Now, a new report claimed Monday that one of the likely features of the handset -- its screen resolution -- has been confirmed by a recent profile of the upcoming phone.
According to the leaked device profile, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active with the model number SM-G890A could sport a quad HD display with a screen resolution of 2560x1440 pixels, Ubergizmo reported, adding that the other likely features of the device still “remain up in the air.”
However, there are no details about the device’s screen size and other key specifications about the display panel. Both Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge feature a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touch screen with a screen resolution of 2560x1440 pixels.
Samsung traditionally goes for liquid crystal displays (LCDs) for its rugged devices. However, this does not necessarily mean that the company will not opt for other display options for the upcoming Galaxy S6 Active, SamMobile reported, adding that the South Korean technology giant used a Super AMOLED panel for its Galaxy S5 Active.
According to previous rumors, the Galaxy S6 Active, which has reportedly been confirmed for AT&T in the U.S., is likely to be packed with a 3,500mAh battery, which will provide the phone with at least 15 to 20 hours of battery life on a single charge. In comparison, the current Galaxy S6 comes with a 2,550mAh battery, and offers 13 to 15 hours of battery life, SamMobile reported.
Other rumored features and specs of the Galaxy S6 Active include an octa-core Exynos 7420 processor, a 16-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front camera and 3GB RAM.
