Samsung Japan have confirmed the existence of the Samsung Galaxy Active Neo.
The new diminutive device is designed for the active who take saving space much more seriously than those who bought the Galaxy S6 Active. The Galaxy Active Neo has a smaller screen with a display of 4.5 inches at 480p. Whereas the Galaxy Active offers 5.1-inches, Super AMOLED, QHD screen. Protecting it all is Corning Gorilla Glass 4, the latest from the American glass company.

A battery saving mode is also included to ensure that you are not caught out in emergencies when you’re going on adventures.
