The Samsung Galaxy S5 Active is yet to be officially unveiled by Samsung, but it has already leaked in a number of photos and videos. Now, official photos of the handset from AT&T have surfaced online, thanks to leak-artist @evleaks.
The press photos give us a clear look of the Galaxy S5 Active showing off its extremely rugged look (or ugly, to be honest).
Since the Galaxy S5 already comes with an IP67 rating, the S5 Active is probably going to come with an even higher IP rating and would be targeted towards rugged users. While the S5 Active has the same design language as the Galaxy S5, it makes use of hardware navigation keys and a thicker plastic back with bolts around its corners to further strengthen its build quality.
Other specs of the Galaxy S5 Active have already been revealed and include a removable 2800mAh battery, a Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM and a 16MP camera. Interestingly, Samsung is going to use a slightly larger 5.2-inch Super AMOLED panel on the S5 Active, which might not go down well with existing Galaxy S5 owners.
The above images confirm that the Galaxy S5 Active is definitely coming to AT&T in the United States. Since the handset is meant to cater to a niche market, its launch on other major carriers in the United States looks dubious. Even internationally, expect the phone to be available only in certain key markets of the world.[Via @evleaks]
