Galaxy Note 5 Active with a massive battery allegedly coming soon

If you like the Galaxy Note 5 but wish it packed a bigger battery we’ve got some good news. PhoneArena reports that Samsung is already prepping a Galaxy Note 5 Active with massive 4100mAh battery, citing an anonymous tipster as its source.

The rugged version of the Samsung phablet would also come with an IP68 waterproof rating. It’s allegedly set to launch the week of Nov. 8 as an AT&T exclusive. That’s all we know for now, though it’s easy enough to make some educated guesses about the Galaxy Note 5 Active.

If the new device is anything like the Galaxy S6 Active it will swap that sleek metal design for a tougher plastic and rubber build. We may also get three physical buttons in front. Overall we actually think Samsung’s latest Active phone looks pretty nice, so hopefully the company won’t change too much for its Note 5 variant.

When it comes to specs the Galaxy Note 5 Active will likely offer the same 5.7-inch Quad HD display, Exynos 7420 processor, 16-megapixel camera and 4GB of RAM. Of course it’s possible Samsung could change the hardware a bit. Hopefully we’ll learn more soon, though it looks like the new phone won’t make its official debut for at least a few more months.
