When Samsung introduced the Galaxy S5 with water and dust resistance it was believed by many that Samsung might ax its Galaxy Active series as a result. More recently, however, evidence has cropped up in the form of leaked videos and other information that highlight a bit of what to expect from the Galaxy S5 Active.

Now @evleaks has also brought us what could be the first press image of the GS5 Active, alongside the promise that the device will arrive to AT&T later this year. This leaves us wondering, will the GS5 Active arrive exclusively to AT&T? Considering the GS4 Active was an exclusive to the network, we certainly wouldn’t be surprised, though it’s really too early to say for sure.

Another big question left is what the GS5 Active will do differently from the ‘standard’ dust/water resistant Galaxy S5. Based on what we currently know, we can expect better waterproofing and even higher durability from the Galaxy S5, though there’s hopefully at least a few other tricks up the GS5 Active’s sleeves as well.

What do you think, excited for an even more ruggedized version of the Galaxy S5 or do you think this variant is unnecessary?
