Well folks, despite our initial doubts, the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active is as real as real can be.
Just hours after a bunch of new images were spilled, US carrier AT&T has just launched the rugged S5 variant, which adds shock resistance and a more robust dust-proof body on top of the flagship's existing waterproof feature.
But the Active isn't cutting corners elsewhere. You'll still be getting that 5.1-inch AMOLED screen, 16-megapixel camera, and the fingerprint scanner.
Samsung's also added an extra button to the side of the phone, which will take you to straight to all of your outdoorsy-type apps.
AT&T is selling the handset for $199.99 (around £120/AU$215) on a two-year contract. We've asked Samsung about global availability and we'll let you know as soon as we hear more.
But the question now is: do we actually need this phone? With the S5 flagship offering more protection against the elements than ever, an Active variant feels a little less necessary this time around.
But if you're heading out for a spot of mountain climbing/jet skiing/sandboarding/extreme rollerblading, then you might be safer with the more rugged option. Just saying.
