The Galaxy S5 Active has sparingly made some appearances in the rumor mill. Most of these rumors have indicated that the smartphone will launch via multiple carriers in the U.S. unlike its predecessor. Today, a new leak coming from GFX Bench has revealed the alleged hardware specs sheet of the device. And by the looks of it, it doesn’t seem like the handset will be a lot different from the Galaxy S5, at least in terms of core hardware.
The presence of a 5.2 inch 1080p display is mentioned here along with a 16-megapixel camera, Android 4.4 KitKat, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. One of the biggest and perhaps the most crucial difference here is the inclusion of a Snapdragon 800 chip instead of Snapdragon 801 like the Galaxy S5, but that’s unlikely to cause concern for users.
It will be interesting to see as to how different the Galaxy S5 Active will be in terms of water and dust resistance from the Galaxy S5 and if there will be any significant design changes. Maybe we will see multiple hardware buttons on the front like the Galaxy S4 Active from last year.
