Samsung Galaxy S5 Active render gives us best look at phone yet

Yet another render of the Galaxy S5 Active has surfaced from @evleaks, though this time giving us a clearer look at the front and back of the device.
May 29, 2014

While Samsung has yet to confirm its existence, the number of leaked details and pics for the Galaxy S5 Active make it pretty obvious that such a device is actively in the works. Now we’re getting one the best looks at the handset we’ve had to date, thanks to a new press render from Evan Blass (aka evleaks).

The new render doesn’t tell us anything new about the device but it does better show off the handset’s aesthetics, which many argue look better than the actual Galaxy S5. With the GS5 adding water/dust resistance, you might wonder how the Galaxy S5 will be able to set itself apart from its similar-spec’d brother. Looking at the render, it seems the answer is to give the handset an even more ruggedized looking design that should offer better protection from water, dust and even minor drops.

As for what’s on the inside, the handset is believed to offer the same Snapdragon 801 CPU with 2GB of RAM. Other specs include microSD, a 2800 mAh removable battery, a 5.2-inch 1080p display, a 16MP isocell camera, and even the GS5’s heart rate sensor. The Galaxy S5 fingerprint scanner isn’t included here, though.

Overall the Galaxy S5 Active looks like a solid option for those that want the GS5 but would like even better protection from the elements. As for when we’ll see it? We can’t say for certain just yet, though — judging by the render above — we know it will at least come to AT&T in the United States.
