This is the Galaxy S5 Active

Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S5 Active model complete with AT&T branding has been leaked by @evleaks, although it’s not clear when the device will actually be made available in stores.

The handset’s name – Galaxy S5 Active – is present both on its metal back and on the boot screen. The phone features design lines similar to its predecessor, including three physical buttons on the front, and it’s not clear whether a fingerprint sensor will be present.

Previously leaked videos showing an Active model revealed that the system menu was missing the fingerprint scanner icon, which could also be an indication the rugged Galaxy S5 model may lack one of the Galaxy S5′s main features.

Samsung has confirmed it will include fingerprint sensors in more devices this year, and the Galaxy Tab S flagship tablet is also expected to have such a feature.

Meanwhile, the heart rate sensor that’s found on the back of the regular, plastic Galaxy S5 version under the main camera can also be seen on the Galaxy S5 Active.

Other details revealed in the pictures posted by @evleaks include microSD support, a removable battery and the model number of the AT&T Galaxy S5 Active, SM-G870A, consistent with previous leaks.

In addition to the Galaxy S5 Active, Samsung is expected to unveil a Galaxy S5 Prime model that will feature a 2K display and should compete against the recently unveiled LG G3.

It’s not clear when these Galaxy S5 models will be unveiled, but Samsung does have a New York press event for June.
