Samsung and AT&T launch new S5 Active for $199
AT&T announced the Galaxy S5 Active – water and dust resistant smartphone.
The Galaxy S5 Active adds shock resistance to the Samsung Galaxy S5 specs as well as a new “convenience key” that makes it easier to access apps when enjoying outdoor pursuits.
It comes in camo green, titanium grey and ruby red, and although it looks pretty chunky and rugged, the S5 Active is only .8mm thicker and .3mm taller than its flagship brother.
Specifications of Samsung S5 Active are -
- Display – 5.1-inch HD Super AMOLED
- Resolution – 1920 x 1080 pixels
- OS – Andorid 4.4 KitKat
- User Interface – Touchwiz UI
- Processor – 2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon
- RAM – 2GB
- Internal Storage – 16GB expandable upto 128GB
- Battery – 2800mAh
- Rear camera – 16-megapixel
- Front Camera – 2-megapixel
The S5 Active does have the rear-mounted heart rate monitor featured with the Samsung Galaxy S5, but lacks the fingerprint sensor embedded in the home button of the flagship. This is probably due to the fact the S5 Active features a different button arrangement on the front of the device, making them easier to use with wet fingers.
The phone can be purchased for $199 on a two-year agreement, or $27.50 to $35.75 on a next installment plan in US.
