    The Active could easily have a replaceable battery.

    Could, maybe (though I doubt it "easily" could). But why WOULD they, if they left it off the regular S6?

    5.5 inch is basically a tablet. Too big for a phone. Too small for a proper tablet.
    Where is the S6 mini?
    Haha I enjoy my Note 4 at 5.7 ^_^.

    AT&T now has the Galaxy Alpha for $320 if that's any consolation. Premium build, great performance, small size, little price.

    They would do this to provide different bells and whistles for the same high end model.

    No they wouldn't. The point of it is to be rugged. It's not a power user phone.

    Looks like I'm sticking with the GS6, 5.5 too clunky for me.

    It's pushing it for me, depends on how it feels in the hand. I can imagine how nice a 5.5 inch QHD SAMOLED screen looks though.....

    Agree, however it has to pass the pocket test for me, the S6 is at the boundary for my likings.

    Beings it's the 'Rugged' version;
    Hikers, Hunters, Outdoorsman...
    They need a swappable battery for their long trips away from a power source.

    OMFG is that a stretch, some people will just twist themselves into knots to try and justify the removables. Those guys are just as likely to use an external battery...more likely, since it doesn't involve fumbling around with an open phone back while out in the wilderness while in the outdoors hiking and hunting.

    The only reason I cared about a removable battery was that I knew I could replace it easily if it wore out. TBH though, I never keep a phone that long...and if the non-removable battery wears out then I have another excuse to upgrade...so it's all good.

    Hoping I can upgrade every other announcement instead of every announcement. Swappable battery helps that.

    I'm simply commenting in the lengths some people will go to in order to justify their own (very) personal need for removables. I'm also not the one that brought the subject up in the first place, but if someone does bring it up with a convoluted and barely justifiable explanation, I fully intend to laugh at it. A lot. Out loud. While rolling on the floor. Just so we're clear.

    And now that we're done with the removable removables intermission, back to discussing the rugged variant of the Galaxy S6 line.

    I'm thinking for a long hiking trip with a Rugged version of an S6, I'm going to need an extra SD card for all the pictures I'm going to take.

    I am. You're apparently insulted and offended by my opinion. Get over it. And now I'm going to have to place you on ignore, rather than actually get nasty with you.

    Looks like the specs remain largely untouched, except for the oomphed-up battery capacity.

    From the front page:
    "Galaxy S6 Active is said to follow suit by having nearly identical specs to the standard Galaxy S6, though in this case gaining a huge 3500mAh battery"

    Both the Galaxy S5 and the Galaxy S4 had Active variants that butched up the phone's case with sturdy rubber bumpers, waterproofing, and shockproofing — and the phones looked the part (there was even a camouflage back available for the Galaxy S5 Active). Internally, the Galaxy S6 Active is said to follow suit by having nearly identical specs to the standard Galaxy S6, though in this case gaining a huge 3500mAh battery (the standard Galaxy S6 has nearly a full ampere-hour less at 2550mAh). That'd put the rumored Galaxy S6 Active right in the neighborhood of the Motorola Droid Turbo.

    I'll definitely take extra battery oomph, my big question is if it'll keep MST and the fingerprint reader.....Qi would be nice too, rather than messing with a cover for the USB port.

    There'd BETTER be a T-Mobile version...AT&T tends to disable HSPA AWS.

    It's very interesting as I'm on AT&T. 5.5" screen is about 16% bigger than 5.1" in area. But 3500mAh is more than enough battery increase to offset extra screen power.

    But big question is what will happen to wireless charging and fingerprint scanner? Active might lose those features I guess.
