Are you looking for a Galaxy S6 that’s tougher and that lasts longer on a single charge than other versions? Then you’ll definitely want to check out a video that AT&T posted on Monday that reveals the key specs and features of the Galaxy S6 Active, the newest variation of the Galaxy S6 that’s designed for rugged outdoor use.

The highlight feature here is the 3,500mAh battery that will deliver significantly more juice than the 2,550mAh battery found in the Galaxy S6. Other specs for the device include a 5.1-inch quad-HD Super AMOLED display, an Exynos 7420 octa-core 64-bit processor, a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera.

As far as durability features go, the Galaxy S6 Active is designed to completely absorb drops from 4 feet or less and it can be submerged into 1.5 meters of water for up to 30 minutes. It’s officially listed as water-resistant and dustrproof as well.

As of this writing, no release date or pricing information have yet been announced and AT&T’s launch page only says the device is “coming soon.” That said, if AT&T has a video of the S6 Active posted, we can’t imagine official pricing and release information are that far away.
