    Samsung Galaxy S5 goes through extreme water tests!

    After being dropped, run over and dunked into an aquarium, the Samsung Galaxy S5 goes through a number of other water tests to see how far it can go. While the first test just pushes the Galaxy S5 a bit more than the IP67 certification states (depth of 1m for 30 minutes) in a pool, the second test is a lot more extreme and involves a pair of blue jeans and a washing machine. Like all of these water-proofed devices, the key to water proofing lays in the sealing, which Samsung seem to have pulled off much better than their first Samsung Galaxy S4 Active attempt. Check out the video for yourself in this article.

    Rumours: Samsung Galaxy S5 Active coming?

    When the Samsung Galaxy S4 first got launched it was quickly followed by a number of other smartphones with the same design but different tech specs and features for specific needs. One of these smartphones was the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active and it was one of the few smartphones from Samsung to get water proofing. While we've yet to hear anything about a Samsung Galaxy S5 Active, mainly because the Samsung Galaxy S5 is already dust and water proof,  @evleaks suggests that a Samsung Galaxy S5 Active smartphone is still coming under the model name of SM-G870x. Instead of just IP67 certification, it could offer MIL-STD-810G certification which would offer proofing for dust, heat, humidity, rain, salt, solar radiation, transportation, shock and vibration on top of just water proofing. No news on specific Malaysia release dates, tech specs or features but the master leaker expects the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active to come by the end of 2014.
