Samsung to Bring Galaxy S6 Active Soon With a MicroSD Card Slot

Posted By: Super

    When Samsung finally launched the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge at the start of this month, everybody was amazed by the sleek looks of the new handsets. However, many were irritated by the very fact that Samsung had placed a non removable battery and did not include a MicroSD card in its latest flagships.

    Samsung has done well in battery optimization with its previous flagships - the Note 4 and Galaxy S5, plus it has added a couple of pretty effective power saving modes, now it feels safe to assume that less and less users feel the urge to carry a spare battery or a power bank with them at all times.

    So, the removable battery issue may not affect many, though, the amount of users that will be missing the microSD card slot is, indeed, much larger - there's just something about being hard-limited to the phone's internal SD that irks Samsung fans, as they've boasted about expandable storage for years.

    The ruggedized version of Samsung's latest flagship will boast "similar" hardware under the hood and will come with an SD card slot. However, it will also come at a cost. 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 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.
