EVOTECH 6/23/14 – Sprint’s Galaxy Gets Sporty

Americans: you no longer have to flock to AT&T to get a Galaxy S phone that can handle your outdoor adventures. Sprint has unveiled the Galaxy S5 Sport, a spin on the Galaxy S5 Active’s formula that revolves around fitness.


Sprint has an answer to the Samsung Galaxy Active from AT&T. Enter the Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport.




Sporting rugged features, mechanical buttons, and of course, many fit apps, this phone plans to compete with the Active; however, there is no mention of waterproof, etc.

Yo will still get a 5.1-inch, 1080p display, a quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, a 16-megapixel camera and a heart rate sensor. Not surprisingly, you won’t pay a premium over the ordinary model as a result — the Sport will go on sale July 25th for a familiar-sounding $650 off-contract, or $27 per month for two years. That’s a lot to spend just to get a handset built for exercise, but it might be worth investigating if you were already bent on using your next phone as your fitness instructor.






The phone goes on sale July 25th, so definitely get your pre-orders in here!
