Samsung Galaxy S5 Active wants to shine in the spotlight, specs leaked

We know that Samsung is working on numerous versions of its flagship and the Galaxy S5 Active being one of them, has finally been leaked. The S5 Zoom (now official as the K Zoom), S5 mini (or Dx), S5 Prime and S5 Neo have all been in the spotlight multiple times and this is the first time we’re seeing concrete details of the rugged model show up.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 Active has been spotted on AnTuTu benchmark where its specifications and test scores have been revealed. The model here is the SM-G870A which is said to be destined for AT&T in the US. Hardware-wise, the smartphone looks to be identical to the flagship handset. It runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat with a Snapdragon 801 SOC clocked at 2.5GHz doing the heavy lifting.

The display size hasn’t been mentioned, but the resolution is 1920 x 1080p and we’re certain that the panel will be 5 inches wide or larger. The phone also has the same 2MP front and 16MP rear cameras, while memory needs are taken care of by 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM. This basically means that no features are going to be compromised unlike last year’s model. However, there’s still no word on whether the fingerprint reader and heart rate monitor will be onboard and smartphone could feature a tweaked design to make it more rugged and also more resistant to water.

Since the Galaxy S5 is already IP67-certified water-resistant, we’re eager to see what Samsung does with the S5 Active model. What are your thoughts on the phone?
