Samsung Galaxy S5 Active seems to have a 5.2-inch screen, should be as waterproof as Sony's Xperia Z2
Lately, we heard a lot about the unannounced Samsung Galaxy S5 Active, and we also saw several videos allegedly presenting its AT&T variant (SM-G870A). Well, we can now check out the S5 Active in another (short) video, which seems to confirm that the handset has a 5.2-inch display, thus being slightly larger than the 5.1-inch screen of the regular Galaxy S5.

The pixel resolution of the S5 Active’s display isn’t changed, so it’s the same 1,080 x 1,920 that’s also seen on the regular S5. The larger screen is hardly noticeable if you put the S5 Active next to the original S5.

According to TK Tech News, the S5 Active is IP58-certified, thus providing the same levels of dust- and water-resistance as Sony’s Xperia Z2. The regular Galaxy S5 is IP67-certified, which means you can’t keep it underwater for more than 30 minutes (but you will be able to do this with the S5 Active). 


Another unannounced Samsung handset that supposedly has a 5.2-inch screen is the Galaxy S5 Prime. Unlike the S5 Active, though, the Prime should offer a pixel resolution of 1,440 x 2,560. We’ve yet to find out when Samsung is planning to announce the Galaky S5 Active and S5 Prime. It should happen in the near future anyway.
