The Samsung Galaxy S4 Active Poses for the Camera
Samsung’s ruggedized waterproof Galaxy S4 surfaces to the top of the rumor mill. Lately a few different manufacturers have taken a liking to water proof devices. Most recently Sony has taken the wraps off of their fully submergible Xperia ZR and it now looks as if Samsung wants to get its phones wet as well! Samsung has been known for making ruggedized smart phones, including the ever popular Rugby devices but, what would happen if the company applied its super rugged designs to a flagship like the Galaxy S4? Well, if these pictures and rumors are to be believed, it looks as if we will get an ultra durable Samsung Galaxy S4 sometime in the near future! Meet the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active!
Details of the Active variation of the Samsung Galaxy S4 emerged into the rumor mill in April of this year. The device was rumored alongside different version of the S4 including the S4 Mini and the S4 Zoom. Today, a picture and new details have surfaced showing off the S4 Active and giving a bit more credence to its existence. The Galaxy S4 Active is similar in shape and size to the standard Galaxy S4 and comes with a model number of GT-i9295. While its shape and overall design stays the same, there are some small differences that give it its Active build. Firstly from the pictures we can see it sports a red coloring and offers up what seem to be built in bumpers toward the top and bottom rear of the device. Additionally the S4 Active does away with the capacitive navigation keys and single button with three physical buttons, similar to that of the Rugby Pro. The GS4 Active is indeed ruggedized, which means it will be dust proof as well as water proof. It comes with a 5 inch Super AMOLED touch screen that offers up a full 1920×1080 pixel resolution. The GS4 Active is also said to come with a 1.9 GHz processor, which is assumed to be a Snapdragon 600 system chip, as well as an Adreno 320 GPU. The S4 Active is also poised to run with a 13 mega pixel camera and provide all of the awesomeness that is expected from the Galaxy S4’s operating system. As expected a release time and price range on this new rugged Android handset has not been announced, however previously leaked details on the device give it an expected launch sometime in July.
