Samsung Galaxy S5 Active Found on AnTuTu and FCC, Features Revealed
Samsung has introduced the flagship Samsung Galaxy S5 last February last Mobile World Congress. The Korean tech giant released the device in April and since then the Galaxy S5 has been gaining excellent traction. Recent information say that the adoption of the Galaxy S5 has been greater compared to the Samsung Galaxy S4. Similar to its previous moves, the company will reportedly be releasing an "Active" variant of the latest flagship.
The tougher and rougher version of the Samsung Galaxy S5 may be arriving sooner than expected as more leaks surface. According to a report by Android Community, the device has been spotted on both FCC and AnTuTu listings.
Through the FCC listing, the device was labeled as the SM-G870A. Many analysts believe this to be the Galaxy S5 Active. The device handset measures 73.45 mm wide and 143 mm long. There were no details on the thickness of the smartphone. The dimensions of the spotted handset appears larger compared to the flagship. Samsung Galaxy S5 measures 72.5 mm wide and 142 mm long. The additional weight or build may be because of the extra rugged features. Samsung's Active line is best known for additional features allowing users to bring the handset in more extreme settings.
AnTuTu's benchmarking, on the other hand, supports the FCC listing. According to the report, the G870A is the "active" version of the Samsung Galaxy S5. As for the hardware, there were similarities in the reported devices including 2.5 Ghz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801, 16GB internal storage, 2GB RAM, 16MP primary camera and 2MP front camera. The resolution should be around 1920 x 1080 pixels.
European sites under Samsung also appear to be gearing up for the release of the Samsung Galaxy S5. A number of countries may be first in line to receive the handset including Norway, Finland, Sweden and Denmark. These countries have been preparing for a model named SM-G850F. Samsung has not released an official announcement yet.
