South Korea's top notch handset maker Samsung has been long rumored to come up with a rugged version of the Galaxy S5.
Even before the release of Galaxy S5, trade pundits had predicted that Samsung could announce as many as four different variants of its flagship phone.
Following in the footsteps of the company's last big release ( Galaxy S4), Samsung seems interested in bringing a durable version of the Galaxy S5 into market.
The supposed Galaxy S5 Active has finally made its presence felt in a User Agent Profile that allegedly confirms the device. Looks like the handset has been confirmed.
Not long ago, it was suggested that the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active could come with a model number SM-G870. And today, a handset carrying the model number SM-G870A appeared in a User Agent Profile. Apparently, this very handset could be an exclusive to AT&T, just like its predecessor.
The phone, Samsung Galaxy S5 Active, will likely to sport a Full HD screen and familiar high-end specs. But the question remains important, as to why Samsung would like to launch a rugged handset when the Galaxy S5 already has water and dust-resistant features. May be Samsung has plans to launch the Galaxy S5 Active with beefy internals. Who knows ? Only time will tell!
This year, Samsung appears to launch more variants of the Galaxy S5, so as to make a strong hold in the market.
There has been a constant stream of rumors about the Galaxy S5 Prime aka premium S5 model. The Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime edition is speculated to be even more powerful than the Galaxy S5. It is said to feature a Quad HD display, Snapdragon 805 processor and run on Android 4.4 Kitkat.
Besides the Galaxy S5 Prime and Active models, Samsung is again rumored to bring a dedicated camera phone , dubbed the Galaxy K Zoom. Just a day back, an alleged image of Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom was splashed all over the web. The rumored device may come with a 20MP camera wrapped in a slim trip body.
Samsung Galaxy S5, which was announced on February 24, is all set to release in 150 countries, including India, on April 11.
