If the current rumors are accurate, one of the main complaints against the Samsung Galaxy S6 could be fixed with their Galaxy S6 Active version. The latest intel suggests it will come with the missing microSD slot that many Samsung Galaxy fans are missing in the latest flagship. It might even have a removable battery.
To be clear, here at HQ we are skeptical of both claims, but for information's sake we are sharing this. Here's the quote with the details,
Reddit user “garshol” sat down with a Samsung rep a couple of days ago to discuss the new Galaxies, and the Active was among the topics at the table. The ruggedized version of Sammy's latest flagship will boast “similar” hardware under the hood, according to the report, and will come with an SD card slot. However, it will also come at a cost – according to garshol's posts, the Active's camera will be a lower class than the one on the flagship model, but at least it may still have OIS. Additionally, the endurance model will not have a fingerprint scanner, and will lack a heartbeat sensor.
As for other features, appearance, and ruggedness – garshol's report says that the Active's battery may be removable, and it will see a return of the physical navigation buttons on the front. Supposedly, the phone is in final stages of development and should be launched some time mid-Summer.
