A couple of new videos published by TK Tech News fully reveal what is claimed to be Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S5 Active. In the videos below, we’re presented with a somewhat rugged variation of the Galaxy S5, but with a new housing. There’s no way to tell if this device is the real deal, but the videos are pretty convincing.

The Galaxy S5 Active shown in the video carries the model number SM-G870A, which aligns with previous leaks from @evleaks over the past week. This device appears to be an AT&T variant and between both videos we get a decent first look at it.

As far as specifications go, there’s not a lot to get excited about yet, but this device will definitely be tough and rugged for those in need of more protection without a bulky case. Samsung’s S4 Active gave the device water resistance, but now that this is a standard with the Galaxy S5, it doesn’t appear to have a standout feature aside from its redesigned body style. Either way the videos are definitely interesting to watch.


The second video below provides a closer look at the specifications and benchmarks to help compare the device to its S5 brother and other flagship smartphones. Stay tuned for more news on the S5 Active and rumored Prime as this probably won’t be the last set of leaks before the two are announced.
