There were a lot of sacrifices made in the development of the Samsung Galaxy S6. Even though Samsung decided to go with a sealed design with no user replaceable battery or expandable memory, the S6 also lacks the IP67 certification of its predecessor. If you’re the rough and tumble kind of person who is inclined to get his phone wet on a regular basis, you’re finally in luck. The Samsung Galaxy S6 Active has now been formally announced and it is exactly what you think it is.

Just like the S5 Active announced last fall, the new Galaxy S6 Active has been toughened up to withstand some pretty brutal conditions. It’s got an IP68 rating, meaning that you can submerge it in water up to 1.5 meters in depth for up to half an hour at a time. It’s also protected against the ingress of dust and the ruggedized exterior means that it’ll survive a drop or two too.

The rest of the spec sheet largely mirrors the regular Galaxy S6. The 5.1-inch AMOLED display is of the quad HD variety, the octa-core Exynos processor does the 64-bit thing, and the standard model comes with 32GB of internal storage. There’s also the 16MP camera on the back and the 5MP camera on the front. Aside from the IP68-ness, the other main difference between the Galaxy S6 Active and the regular S6 is the larger battery: this one is 3500mAh. Check out the video below for some more highlights, like the “Activity Zone” for outdoorsy types.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 Active will launch exclusively with AT&T this Friday in your choice of Camo White, Camo Blue, or Gray. You can get it on a Next 24 monthly payment plan of $23.17, which works out to a total of about $700 after you add up all 30 payments.
