Clearest Samsung Galaxy S5 Active images yet leak

The rugged Samsung Galaxy S5 Active has leaked once again, this time in the form of some extremely revealing images.

We’ve seen the not-so-secret Samsung Galaxy S5 Active benchmarked, its unique Active Key fondled, and its super-tough chassis glimpsed. But we’ve never had a simple, clean shot of the device’s proportions.

Until now, that is.

Thanks to reliable Twitter tipster @evleaks, we now know exactly what we’ll be dealing with when the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active abseils into shops.

As you can see, these images are for the US model of the S5 Active, with its prominent AT&T branding giving the game away.

We also get a good look at the S5 Active’s metal back plate and solid outer rim. Around front, meanwhile, we get the best look yet at the device’s three hardware keys, which should make using the device in wet conditions that little bit easier.

What the images don’t appear to show is a finger print scanner, suggesting that Samsung will omit the feature from its tough new handset. Probably a good idea, given that its users will probably be wearing gloves for much of the time.

Having said that, these pictures do appear to confirm that Samsung is packing the Galaxy S5’s heart rate sensor into the Galaxy S5 Active. It’s right there, just below the camera.

Elsewhere, the images show the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active’s removable battery and microSD slot. Check the full front and back images below, and go to the above source link to view the rest of the shots.

Previous leaks suggest that the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active will be very similar to the Samsung Galaxy S5 on the inside, with a 1080p Super AMOLED display, a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 CPU, 2GB of RAM, a 16-megapixel camera, and Android 4.4.2.

We wouldn’t be surprised if Samsung officially launched the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active at its New York event in June.
