Well that certainly didn’t take long. After tons of speculation, a leak here and another one there, Samsung has finally come out of the dark and introduced the Galaxy S 4 Active smartphone to the general public. Identified as a more rugged version of the existing Galaxy S 4,the Galaxy S 4 Active features full IP67 certification— so the device is fully water and dust-proof, allowing users to do things like take some sweet photos underwater thanks to the device’s Aqua Mode feature or use the device during those difficult hikes. Complimenting the rugged exterior is a 1.9GHz quad-core processor, a 5-inch Full HD TFT LCD screen, 8MP camera + 2MP FFC and of course— Android 4.2.2 (accompanied by Sammy’s suite of software). So all in all— we’re looking at a rougher, tougher and stronger version of the Galaxy S 4, which is certainly welcome out here in the Android world.
The device will initially launch in 3 colors (Urban Grey, Dive Blue and Orange Flare) this summer in the U.S. and Sweden, followed by a more formal global rollout. You can find more details once you hit the flip and check out the full presser.
