“No flimsy fingerprint sensor,” they said.
Most likely, anyways. The new Galaxy S5 Active is a rugged version of the new, regular, and “soft” S5, which trades in its fingerprint sensor for the additional reliability to withstand impacts and water. A convenience key has been added to the side of the phone that launches desired “outdoor apps”, so when you’re out and about adventuring, you’ll have an easier way to access the important stuff. Meanwhile, the same 16 megapixel camera and 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 801 processor remain.
As for availability? Well, it’s on sale, as of today in Camo Green, Titanium Grey and Ruby Red colors, which will cost $200 on the usual two-year contracts.
