News & Reviews: Samsung Galaxy S5 Active
Last Updated: Jun 02, 2014
The Samsung Galaxy S5 Active has been officially announced for the AT&T telco in the US. While it does look different from the Samsung Galaxy S5 with it's rugged looking backside and physical buttons below the touchscreen display, it turns out that it carries the same IP67 water and dust resistance certification as the Galaxy S5. Tech specs and features for the Samsung Galaxy S5 active include a 2.5GHz quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, 11GB storage, 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display with 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution, 16MP rear camera, 2MP front camera, 2800 mAh battery and Android 4.4.2. While there is a military theme going on, we can't confirm that it actually has military grade shock proofing and since it is made for AT&T there's practically no hope that we'll see it appear in Malaysia any time soon.

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.
