Samsung has almost made it a trend of announcing a flagship early in the year and then deriving various other products from it. Last year, Samsung announced the Galaxy S4 and then followed it up with a Galaxy S4 mini and a Galaxy S4 Active variant that was water and dust resistant. And from the look of things, it seems that Samsung will continue to follow the trend in 2014.

Samsung had already announced the Samsung Galaxy S5 and it is available in the market right now. A mini version of the flagship has been rumored stages for sometime now and it is only a matter of official announcement. Samsung introduced the Galaxy S5 with IP67 ratings for Dust and water Resistance. At that it seemed that a Galaxy S5 Active was dead. But it seems that Samsung hasn’t given up on a more water resistant Galaxy S5 Active. The rumored Galaxy S5 Active will come with IP68 certification that allows it more time in the water.


The specifications of the Galaxy S5 Active will be on par with the Galaxy S5 main variant and the main specifications are as follows

  • 5.1-inch full HD (1920×1080 pixels) Super AMOLED display
  • 2.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor
  • Android 4.4.2 (KitKat)
  • 16MP rear camera with LED Flash, BSI and 4Kvideo recording
  • 2.1MP front-facing camera
  • 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage
