gs5-active-appsWhile the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active did not really manage to light up the smartphone world by leaps and bounds, it still has done its fair bit to add more glamor to the Galaxy range of high end devices, throwing in water-resistant capability to a certain extent. Having said that, why not continue in the right direction? That is what the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active is all about, where it has been rumored earlier this year, and here we are with @evleaks having tweeted that there are already 277 active APKs that will arrive with the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active right from the get go.

As the name of this Galaxy S5 variant suggests, it will be a rough and tumble version of the standard issue flagship handset that has recently seen it released globally. The Samsung Galaxy S5 has already picked up IP67 certification, which means you will be able to leave it submerged in 1 meter of water (3.2 feet) for up to half an hour at any one time, and continue using it. What about the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active, then? It might be on the receiving end of the next level of certification, which would be IP68, that would place it on par with the Sony Xperia Z2. IP68 certification would enable users to submerge one’s handsets to 1.5 meters (5 feet) for an entire hour without requiring you to purchase a brand new handset.

Do bear in mind that this is just a rumor as at press time, and considering how the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active itself has yet to be announced by the South Korean manufacturer, things miht change before it is finally released.
