It is Monday and it is the date of the beginning of the Worldwide Developers Conference by Apple Inc. So you might have expected Apple Inc to get all the attention from the tech experts and analysts, as the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference is one of the most important and relevant events in the Cupertino calendar. However, the Korean tech giant Samsung, the fiercest rival of the Silicon Valley company outside the United States, has announced a new phone just a short while ago, and within hours before the Worldwide Developers Conference of Apple Inc was about to begin. So even if most of the analysts in the field reckon this Monday as Apple`s big day, their Korean rival makes a move that could not have been placed anywhere better in time, as Samsung announces new Galaxy S6 phone, designed for a more active way of life.
You probably wonder why there was a need for a new Galaxy S6 smartphone, as the two original editions, including the stylish Galaxy S6 Edge were already perfect. So, what more could another S6 phone do in order to justify its existence?
Well, the best answer for this question lies within the name of the new smartphone. It is called the Samsung Galaxy S6 active, and the developers have said that it has been especially designed for a more active lifestyle. What does Samsung understand by `a more active lifestyle`? Basically, if you enjoy mountain trips, scuba diving or just feeling the good times of the great outdoors, the `active` edition of Galaxy S6 might just be perfect for you.
Officials talking on behalf of Samsung have said in a statement that the new smartphone is built to be a durable mobile gadget, but it also keeps the smoothness of the other S6 editions. According to them, the active still features a lightweight design and all the best that an S6 can offer you.
The S6 active is pretty similar to the original sixth generation Galaxy by Samsung. However, it is waterproof and has resistance to dust.
Even if the new mobile gadget by Samsung looks like attracting the interest of a large number of customers, representatives of the Korean tech giant have revealed the fact that it will only be available through AT&T, starting with June 12.
“The Galaxy S6 active is the best Galaxy S6 in the market.”
Jeff Bradley, an AT&T senior official has said in a statement.
