Exclusive: Samsung Galaxy S5 Active to launch in Europe


Last updated: September 8th, 2014 at 12:07 UTC+02:00

Earlier this year, Samsung launched the Galaxy S5 Active, a rugged variant of the already water and dust-resistant Galaxy S5. For some reason, Samsung has kept the device exclusive to carriers in the US, but it turns out the exclusivity will be short-lived as our sources tell us that the Galaxy S5 Active will be headed to Europe in the near future. The phone will launch in silver and green colors with a suggested retail price of €629 – there’s no details about the exact launch time frame, though we will be sure to pass along any information that we come across.

The Galaxy S5 Active sports mostly the same hardware as the Galaxy S5, such as the 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor, 5.1-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, a 16-megapixel camera, 2GB RAM, 16GB of internal storage and a microSD slot, a 2,800 mAh battery, and a heart rate sensor. There’s no fingerprint scanner on the device, but it does come with a dedicated key for accessing the Activity Zone, which offers features like a compass, barometer, stopwatch and flash light, and for use as a camera shutter button.

The Galaxy S5 Active is also IP67-certified for water and dust resistance, and carries US Mil-STD 810G specification for protection against shock, temperature, humidity, and rain.
