AT&T Announces Exclusive Galaxy S5 Active, Available Now

AT&T just announced the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active. The device is available now online and in AT&T stores for $199 on contract or starting as low as $27.50 per month with an AT&T Next plan.

The device should live up to its “active” name, thanks to a shock, water, and dust resistant casing. It also has a “convenience” key on the side that can launch apps related to outdoor activities. Like its shinier brother, it tracks heart rates as well, with a built in monitor underneath the camera.

If you care about specs, then know that this is identical to the regular Galaxy S5 with its 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, 5.1-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, and 16MP camera.

The Galaxy S5 comes in camo green, ruby red, or titanium gray.  (more…)

Shots of the Galaxy S5 Active for AT&T Leak, Looks Like a Tank

The clearest images yet of the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active leaked today, courtesy of @evleaks. Bound for AT&T, the ruggedized twin of the Galaxy S5 looks to endure all of the concrete and liquid you can throw it at.

Nothing was revealed beyond the new pictures, but we do know a little about the upcoming smartphone. The Galaxy S5 Active will reportedly lose the fingerprint sensor, but gain a dedicated key that acts as a camera shutter button or can be used to launch apps. The Active will also have a removable back cover, as well as a reinforced exterior to lessen the impact of accidental drops.  (more…)

LG and Carriers Announce G3 Availability

Perhaps the most exciting part of LG’s G3 press event wasn’t the confirmation of the Snapdragon 801 processor or the laser auto focus, but the announcement of a launch window. The G3 will retail on more than 170 carriers globally, beginning May 28 in Korea. Word on US availability was unfortunately vague - the best LG PR offered was “later this summer.”

When it launches, the G3 will be available in 16GB and 32GB capacities (both have microSD slots compatible with cards up to 128GB). The differences between the models expands beyond the amount of internal storage: the 16GB model has 2GB of RAM, while the 32GB bumps the memory up to 3GB. Beyond that, though, the variations are identical.
