Samsung Galaxy S5 Active has an Active key

The Samsung Galaxy S5 Active has been the star of the leaks ever since it first appeared and after all those videos and blurry pictures, it is here once again with more. The first video focuses on the Active key of the phone. The reason for its existence? Well it’s pretty simple - capacitive touchscreens don't work underwater you need hardware buttons to operate the device.

This Active key is going to launch the Activity zone app which will then display a barometer reading and a compass direction. Along with this, it also features shortcuts for a flashlight and a stopwatch. All this happens if the Active key is given a short light press. With a long press however, you will be able to launch the camera and the key can be used to snap a photo. You can easily change what opens at the long and short presses of the Active buttons. What we mentioned here are the results of the default settings so you can assign different functions according to your own needs.

On the hardware side, it is most likely that the phone will feature a slightly different hardware and the video clearly shows the hardware IOS. Though this little piece of information might have to be taken with a pinch of salt but it is true that it does seem more stable than the video shot with the regular Galaxy S5.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
