Samsung SM-G870A Spotted in AnTuTu, Might Be the Galaxy S5 Active

One of the handsets that South Korean mobile phone maker Samsung Electronics has been long rumored to bring to the market is the Galaxy S5 Active, and the phone appears to have just emerged in AnTuTu.

The mobile phone has emerged on the benchmarking website with model number SM-G870A attached to it, which has been already rumored to be making an official appearance on shelves at wireless carrier AT&T. No official confirmation on what this phone will be all about has been provided as of now, but it has been already spotted at the FCC with the same model number attached, and it seems that it might not be too long at all before it makes an official appearance. As mentioned above, the handset is expected to be released as the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active, which suggests that it might feature a tougher body when compared to the already available Galaxy S5. The aforementioned listing on AnTuTu appears to confirm this, as the phone emerged there with specs similar to those of Galaxy S5, but also with the “Active” codename attached to it.

As SammyToday notes, the phone will arrive on shelves with a body that is 1mm taller and wider than the current flagship, yet it remains to be seen how that will translate in terms of specs. The aforementioned listing shows the Samsung SM-G870A with a full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) screen, a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, and 2GB of RAM. Moreover, the listing mentions 16GB of internal memory, along with a 16-megapixel camera on the handset’s back, and 2MP front camera for video calling. An Adreno 330 GPU is also referred to, along with the Android 4.4.2 KitKat operating system. All in all, it seems that the new device will indeed be released as a new flavor of the Galaxy S5, though it remains to be seen whether the Active name will also be attached to it.

For those out of the loop, we should note that last year’s Galaxy S4 Active smartphone actually landed on the market with some downgraded specs when compared to the Galaxy S4, although it did feature a tougher, dust- and water-resistant body. We should also note that, while the Samsung SM-G870A is expected to hit shelves at AT&T, a version of the phone will be released on Sprint’s network sometime soon, and that it should sport model number Samsung SM-G860P. Stay tuned for more on these devices.
