Samsung Galaxy S5 Active visits GFX, leaves specs
The Samsung Galaxy S5 Active is a model that many thought would be axed by the manufacturer this year. When Sammy added IP67 certification to the regular Samsung Galaxy S5, the one major reason for purchasing the "Active" variant of the company's flagship handset seemed to have gone away. But the level of water resistance is expected to be higher on the Galaxy S5 Active. Instead of being able to withstand a submersion in up to 3.2 feet of water for up to 30 minutes, the Galaxy S5 Active is expected to be able to live through a dunking in up to 5 feet of water for as long as an hour.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 Active recently paid a visit to the GFX Benchmark site, leaving a list of specs. So just what can we expect from this sturdy device? How about a 5.2 inch screen with resolution of 1080 x 1920? That is a slightly larger screen than the 5.1 inch glass on the Samsung Galaxy S5. A quad-core 2.5GHz Snapdragon 800 CPU is under the hood along with the Adreno 330 GPU. 2GB of RAM and 11GB of free memory is on board. The back and front facing cameras are 16MP and 2MP respectively. Android 4.4.2 is pre-installed out of the box.

While the Samsung Galaxy S5 has yet to be announced, we expect the phone to be available from at least AT&T and Sprint in the U.S. And Samsung could still make this an interesting model if it were to equip the device with a battery much larger than the 2800mAh cell employed by the Samsung Galaxy S5.

Thanks for the tip!
