AT&T unveils Samsung Galaxy S5 Active with MIL-810G specs

We knew it existed but now it's finally crawled out of some jungle to go official. Samsung's Galaxy S5 Active is available today on AT&T and something compared to flagship devices, this time it looks like no notable corners were cut. The body is water, dust and shockproof with its IP67 and MIL-spec 810G certification. The standard Galaxy S5 was already two of those things but some people will definitely appreciate the extra peace of mind that comes from a ruggedized phone.

The Galaxy S5 Active has the same full-HD AMOLED 5.1-inch screen, while the 16-megapixel camera and fingerprint sensor are also lodged into the rugged smartphone. That said, water-resistance is now part of the original GS5's bag of tricks, which makes it less of selling point here. Regardless, there's the shock-resistant dust-proof shell and a burlier look: even if it's dreamy rendered view we're seeing here, the metallic details and finish could well win over Galaxy fans that aren't pro-plastic -- we're a little intrigued to see it IRL.

How tough Samsung Galaxy S5 Active is?

Unlike the S4 Active, the S5 comes with fewer compromises compared to the standard S5. The only major feature missing is the fingerprint sensor in the home button, which wasn't all that great to begin with. Rest of the specifications remain identical. The S5 Active also has an extra button on the side for 'Activity Zone', a single place for all your outdoor activity related features.

The Galaxy S5 Active is available from AT&T in the US for $200 on a two-year contract, or for $715 contract-free. If you buy the phone you also get a 50% discount on the Gear Fit. The phone is available in Camo Green, Titanium Grey and Ruby Red.
