Samsung Galaxy S5 Active With Heart Rate Sensor, IP67 Rating Launched
Samsung has announced its much-awaited ruggedised version of the Galaxy S5, the Galaxy S5 Active. Like Galaxy S5, the Galaxy S5 Active comes with heart rate sensor present at the back panel.

The South Korean giant quietly launched the Galaxy S5 Active on AT&T and has priced it at $714.99 (Rs. 42,000) without contract, while it is also available at $199.99 with two-year contract with AT&T.

Unfortunately, there is no word whether when the Galaxy S5 Active will be available outside the US or on other mobile carriers apart from AT&T.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 Active, much like the Galaxy S4 Active, is dustproof, shock- and water-resistant with IP67 certification and can survive being dipped in up to 1 meter water for up to 30 minutes with covers slightly closed. It meets US Mil-STD 810G for shock, temperature, humidity, rain and altitude. It comes with a water-resistant earphone jack, so one can use earphones even during wet conditions.

According to the official AT&T listing of the Galaxy S5 Active, the smartphone features a special 'convenience key' on the side of the device which launches outdoor activity-related features and apps named as Activity Zone.

The Galaxy S5 Active, much like the Galaxy S5, runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat out-of-the-box. It features a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display with a 1080x1920 pixel full-HD resolution. The smartphone comes with 2GB of RAM and will be available in 16GB inbuilt storage model, with microSD card expandability up to 128GB. The Galaxy S5 sports a 16-megapixel rear camera with HDR (for video as well), and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera.

Connectivity options include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac with MIMO functionality, ANT+, Bluetooth 4.0, USB3.0, NFC, and Infrared remote functionality. It features a 2800mAh battery, rated to deliver 29 hours of talk time, and 480 hours of standby time. The phone has an accelerometer, proximity sensor, a gyro sensor, digital compass, barometer, gesture sensor, finger hovering sensor and a light sensor.

The Galaxy S5 Active will be available in Camo Green, and Titanium Grey colour variants.
