It started leaking out not too long ago, and now it’s finally here. The Samsung Galaxy S5 Active is a ruggedized version of the standard Samsung Galaxy S5 while sporting the same specifications. The device is water and dust resistant like the Galaxy S5, however this one also sports shock resistance to protect the phone from falls.
Specs are exactly the same as the standard S5 which include 2GB of RAM, a Snapdragon 801 processor, and a 1080p AMOLED display. It also brings along the built in heart rate monitor. However this phone does come with a special “convenience key” to launch outdoor related activity apps. For the time being it seems like this phone will be an AT&T exclusive, at least in the US.
The device sells with a 2-year contract for $199 on AT&T and customers are given a $50 off coupon for a Samsung Gear Fit.
