AT&T is on a roll this week with the Lollipop updates. Just yesterday, they began pushing Android 5.0 to the LG G2, and are now following that up with Lollipop updates for the Samsung Galaxy Alpha and Galaxy S5 Active.
The Galaxy Alpha is seeing one of the most recent versions of Lollipop, with an upgrade to Android 5.0.2. The Galaxy S5 Active, on the other hand, seems to only be getting Android 5.0. (more…)
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…)
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…)
A device has popped up YouTube this afternoon that may be the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active on its way to AT&T. According to the leaker, this is a prototype of the rugged version of this year’s Galaxy S5, which we wouldn’t necessarily argue against. (more…)
In true Samsung fashion, it appears we have yet another device on the horizon. evleaks took to Twitter recently to state that the Galaxy S5 Active, model SM-G870x will land on AT&T, Sprint, and a few other unlisted carriers. (more…)
