According to Evleaks, it looks like the Galaxy S5 Active is heading to at least two US carriers. That’d be AT&T and Sprint. Hopefully we’ll see this on Verizon and T-Mobile as well though. The Galaxy S5 Active specs have leaked out lately, and we’re looking at a 5.1-inch 1920×1080 resolution display, 2GB of RAM, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 32GB of storage with a microSD card slot of course, 16MP camera on the back, 2MP front-facing shooter, and a 2800mAh battery inside.

We’re also hearing that the Galaxy S5 Prime is heading to Europe as the SM-G901. Which those specs have leaked out a lot lately too. The most noticeable difference between the Galaxy S5 and the Galaxy S5 Prime is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 and 2560×1440 resolution display on the Galaxy S5 Prime. At first it was said to only be available in Korea, but now it looks like it’s heading to Europe as well, so we may see a worldwide release soon.

Finally, the Galaxy Mega 2. Last year Samsung released the Galaxy Mega 5.8 and 6.3. The Galaxy Mega 6.3 was available on Sprint and AT&T. It was a pretty massive device – hence the name ‘mega’. But it was good for what it was. We heard earlier this week that the Galaxy Mega 2 is going to have a 6-inch 720p display. And we’ll likely see a Snapdragon 400 chipset inside with 2GB of RAM. It’s basically a mid-range phablet from Samsung. Now we’re hearing that the Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 is heading over to China.

One more thing. There’s also mention of a new Gear product, with the model number SM-R382. It could be another fitness-oriented Gear wearable, but so far we have no information about the device. Hopefully we’ll learn more soon, and that it’s a slightly updated version of the Gear Fit. Which is a device that I absolutely loved.
