Samsung Galaxy S5 Active (AT&T variant) poses for the camera once more
posted by Florin T. / May 29, 2014, 1:39 PM
As we already told you, the Galaxy S5 Active sports a 5.2-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display which is a tad larger than the 5.1-inch screen of the regular S5. The new handset has a rugged design, and should be IP68-certified, thus being as waterproof as Sony’s Xperia Z2 flagship. Most of the other features of the S5 Active are similar to the ones that we can find on the regular S5, including: a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16MP rear camera, and a heart rate monitor. The new smartphone doesn’t seem to have a fingerprint recognition sensor.
Unfortunately, we still don’t know when the Galaxy S5 Active is supposed to be announced. Perhaps Samsung is waiting to present it at the same time with the Galaxy S5 Prime? We’ll let you know!
- Display 5.1" 1080 x 1920 pixels
- Camera 16 MP / 2 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 801, Quad-core, 2500 MHz
- Storage 16 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 2800 mAh(29h talk time)

I agree. There's no mention of KNOX so maybe the S5 Active even has an unlocked bootloader. http://www.att.com/shop/wirele

Anyone know if it will offer built-in or at least accept a charging adapter for Qi wireless charging? I don't see the 2 metal prongs found in other Samsung phones.

From what I remember Z2 has an IP58, not IP68 certification..

Ugliest phone of the year. Just horrible design and no point in release as S5 is already waterproof.

This will be salt water proof effectively making the first real usable waterproof flagship, since showering with your phones makes a lot less sense than swimming in the sea and recording what's underneath.
