Samsung Galaxy S5 Active has officially launched on AT&T. The phone is the similar one we’d found in the particular leaking and it is now available up for purchase in the United States from AT&T stores.
Galaxy S5 Active Specs
The Samsung Galaxy S5 Active comes with a 5.1-inch 1080p Super AMOLED touchscreen, a 2.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, microSD card support, 150 Mbps 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, NFC, a heart rate monitor, and a 2,800 mAh battery. It runs Android 4.4 KitKat.
It also sports the same 16 megapixel camera that can shoot 4K video and with the same Focus Select feature, but without the ultra-fast Contrast Detection Autofocus that was a headline feature on the S5. The S5 Active has the S5’s built-in heart rate monitor but not its fingerprint scanner, and also a 2.1 MP for front camera.
Unique to the S5 Active is a “convenience key” located on the left hand side of the device above the volume rocker. When pressed, the dedicated button will launch Samsung Activity Zone, an app which contains a compass, stopwatch, and flashlight – meant for outdoor activities.
The 16GB Galaxy S5 Active costs $199 with new two-year contracts, or $0 down with no contracts followed by 18 monthly installments of $27.50 (AT&T Next 18) or 12 monthly payments of $35.75 (AT&T Next 12). The phone is available in three colors, including Camo Green, Titanium Grey and Ruby Red.
