Latest Video Displays Samsung Galaxy S5 Active Display
With the new Samsung S5 Active set to hit the streets by mid-June, details are continuing to emerge of its specs.
This rugged version of the S5 will share a number of features than the S5 which was launched in February. But a recently released video showing the Active’s display has revealed that the phone actually has a 5.2-inch screen as opposed to the slightly smaller 5.1 inches earlier reports said it would have.
In the video, availed by tech site TK Tech News, the system information of the phone is displayed via the Phone Tester app and there we see that the screen size is 5.2 inches. However, the device does have the 1080p reports had promised it would come with.
The specs show that the display size is 1920x1080p and the resolution 481 dots per inch. What is still not clear from the video is if the Active’s screen is a non-pentile AMOLED display.
Under the hood it will be hard to tell the difference between the original S5 and the Active as the two come with the same 2.5GHz processor and 2GB of RAM.
The phone is meant to be a rough-and-ready version of the S5 and it lives up to this reputation by offering users a dust and waterproof exterior.
You can dunk this device in up to 100cm of water for half an hour and it will come out unscathed, provided the covers are properly closed and sealed.
It also comes with a casing designed to withstand bumps and bruises that daily use can bring.
This is probably the reason for the single home button in the S5 being replaced by three textured buttons.
But according to the advertising message, the phone is meant to handle rougher handling while still offering users a premium experience. It is an S5 you will not be afraid to take with you outdoors.
Furthermore, the S5 Active is a phone that loves the environment. The phone earned 5 out of 5 on At&T’s Eco-Rating scale.
The mobile operator offers this test to give another tool to phone buyers to help them when distinguishing between phones that often come with similar features.
You don’t have to wait to find out what the rugged brother of the Galaxy S5 has and doesn’t have. You can place your order for the phone from a number of online retailers.
