Samsung Galaxy S5 Active launched for US; will it come to India?

The flagship smartphones these days are getting the water and dust proofing treatment courtesy of the trend started by Sony when it launched the Xperia Z. With lives getting hectic these days, people tend to drop their smartphones in water unintentionally and end up regretting it. Manufacturers are taking care of this issue by bringing the smartphones with a IPxx rating which makes them water/dust proof. Samsung is ready to up the ante in the flagship arena and has launched a tougher version of the Galaxy S5 (which already is IP67 certified) in the form of Galaxy S5 Active.

Off topic question.
Will I get full 21.1mbps 3G speed on a 4G lte enabled mobile ? Like on XOLO LT900.


*Technically yes but practically it depends upon the operator.
