Renowned source of leaks on Twitter, Evleaks, has yet again revealed the existence of an upcoming device. According to this new revelation, the rumored Samsung Galaxy S5 Active will arrive via major U.S. carriers carrying the model number SM-G870(x) very soon. Now as with any rumor, we are taking this with a pinch of salt, so don’t hold your breath for its arrival.
It will be interesting to see as to how Samsung will differentiate this from the standard Galaxy S5. Water and dust resistance is already available on the Galaxy S5, so we’re guessing the Korean manufacturer has something special with this handset.
It has been speculated that the handset could come with military grade certification which would give it resistance to thermal shocks, radiation, sand and other forces of nature. And with water damage complaints from the Galaxy S4 Active last year, Samsung will have to be extra careful this time around. We also hope that the smartphone becomes available through a wide range of carriers as last year’s variant was only limited to AT&T in the U.S.
