Samsung Galaxy S5 Active is coming with 277 apps says leak

Samsung Galaxy S5 Active is coming with 277 apps says leak
(Note: Picture at left shows last year's Samsung Galaxy S4 Active)

Evleaks has tweeted what he says is 277 active APKs that will be included on the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active. This variant of the Galaxy S5 is supposed to be rougher and tougher than the regular version of the phone. Last year the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active was the only variant of the device that was water proof and dust proof, but this year the regular version of the phone has IP67 certification. That means that the Samsung Galaxy S5 can be submerged in 1 meter of water (3.2 feet) for up to 30 minutes, and live.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 Active might be certified to the next level, IP68. This is the same certification received by the Sony Xperia Z2, and allows users to submerge their handsets to 1.5 meters (5 feet) for one hour, and work like new.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 Active has yet to be announced by the Korean manufacturer, but is rumored to be available for customers of both AT&T and Sprint, later this year.

Samsung should call this the Galaxy S5 M - military

Most of these are system apps. Most androids have hundreds of apps built in. Not all are designed to be used as standalone apps. Even simple apks like wallpapers, each system wallpaper is an individual apk. Think my note3 has crazy amounts so this is not a surprise, i would like ip68 which has a rating down to 3m and totally dust proof

Dislike junk apps/bloatware/re-installed apps, call it whatever you want. Meh, I just want a Z2.

No offence but you people are great! Has anyone of you seen the pic properly? It includes the jar files of the framework. the renamed the jar files as apk's! Android.policy.jar! People think or see before you post! I am not a samsung fan boy but you people should consider checking the pics first!

I use swing by swing golf gps when golfing and my phone is mounted to my push cart. Now I keep my N3 in a ziplock bag when it rains. Guess I can ditch the bag if I get one of these!

Don't make me laugh... Android lag? This is 2014. My Note 3 is more stable than my iPad 4 which sometimes crashes since iOS 7 and mine still 7.0.4 cause it's jailbroken device and little upgrade won't be necessary.

this is the reason of having 2gb ram instead of 4gb ram... the more apps you install the more ram it needs

Haters just need some excuse to hate. Apks need to be installed as apps. They CAN BE DELETED as normal files WITHOUT root access. But still samsung should ditch Ugly laggy CRAPWIZ and slap cyanogenmod or paranoid android. It will sell like hot cakes.

Not all users dont know hot to root. Dont know how to delete bloats. My god! Is that the worth of buying Active?

why dont you download apex or nova launcher if you hate touchwiz, simple. i love touchwiz it has more feautres than any other UI out there... its android, if you dont like it, install what you like or root it, simple

Now thats how you are suppose to bloat your device with unnecessary apps and gimmicks that will consume more ram and slow down you're device... Somebody should learn from Samsung how to slow down your device and make androids experience Laggy...

The S5 comes with 11.8GB available user space for the 16GB variant and there's barely any bloat. So I really doubt it.

galaxy s5 active 16gb and 3gb ram comes with 4gb free space and 1gb usable ram...

15. express77 unregistered

wrong. 1 gb free space and 100 mb ram with all that bloat. i suggest people to buy original s5 or rumoured 2k s5 over it.

Better than non removable bloatware. Unwanted Apks can be deleted.

"Active might be certified to the next level, IP68. This is the same certification received by the Sony Xperia Z2," Lie. Sony Xperia Z2 has not IP68 , bit IP58. That means less dust proof than S5. This is the same iRumor like the "premium ALUMINUM S4". Inveted to brainwash you that Samsung "know" that S5 is "not premium" like iPhone (and HTC M8) and just try to catch up with them. Now is the sane trick, but "catch up with" Z2

and ip58 also means better waterproofing than S5....!! Z2 can go upto 5 feet water for 1 hour...

he said dust proof, not water proof. z2 is less dust proof than s5 but z2 is more water proof than s5

really dont see the point of a S5 Active. couldnt they just have made the S5 with this certification? we have Samsung pulling sh!t like this and smurf has the nerve to call out Sony for refreshing their flagships every 6 months
