Samsung Galaxy S5 Active launched in the US

The more rugged and durable Galaxy S5 Active has been launched in the US as a carrier exclusive to AT&T in three colours – Camo Green, Titanium Grey, and Ruby Red.

Just like how the S4 Active is to the S4, the S5 Active is a ruggedised S5 (do check out our S5 review here), targeted at people looking for a phone that can take a beating or two. The S5 Active is water resistant and dust proof, like the S5, and also shock resistant.

There is also a dedicated button on the side that launches “all of your apps related to outdoor activity, in one place for easy access“. Samsung has opted to remove the fingerprint scanner and change the capacitive buttons on the front to physical keys as well. Other than these few key differences, the internals of the S5 Active remains largely similar to the S5.

There is currently no news regarding the S5 Active launching in Singapore and other markets, but do keep a look out on our site for updates.
