A new video displaying the Galaxy S5 Active AT&T model hit the internet earlier this week.
A leaked phone with the model number SM-G870A appears in this hands-on video. It basically reveals Samsung's decision to follow the same blueprint as the S4 Active with the new model which will basically function as a water and dustproof version of the S5 with a more bulky and durable body.
The release date for the Galaxy S5 Active on AT&T could be announced in the near future as the device was spotted on the GFXBench website recently.
The listing revealed information on the handset that included the specifications. The device will feature a 5.2-inch Full HD display which will most likely be AMOLED. This makes the screen slightly bigger than the version found on the Galaxy S5.
It also comes with a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 800 CPU, 2GB RAM, 16GB of internal memory a 2 megapixel front camera and Android 4.4.2 KitKat. The rear camera is 16 megapixels and takes pictures with a resolution of 5312x2988.
Most features are almost identical to those found on the original Galaxy S5 model. The main difference appears to be the dimensions as the Active measures in at 143x73.42 mm wide in comparison to the original which is 142x72.5.
A device that could be the Samsung Galaxy S5 Google Play Edition was recently spotted clearing the Bluetooth SIG's certification.
The model number was SM-G900FG. It is the same number used for the carrier based Galaxy S5, except it has a G at the end. The Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition also featured a G at the end of the number for the carrier models.
Samsung released both an Active and GPe Galaxy S4 last year.
