Galaxy S4 Active

Ruggedized GS4 launching this summer, entrance to a U.S. and Sweden first

After weeks of leaks, Samsung has strictly announced a Galaxy S4 Active — a ruggedized, H2O and dust-resistant chronicle of a flagship smartphone. The Galaxy S4 Active shares most of a inner hardware with a vanilla Galaxy S4, including a quad-core Snapdragon 600 CPU during 1.9GHz, 2GB of RAM, a 1080p (TFT, not AMOLED) display, 2600mAh battery and 16GB of inner storage, expandable around microSD. The camera’s taken a teenager hit, going from 13MP on a unchanging GS4 to 8MP on a Active.

The categorical disproportion is a “fully hermetic design” that a manufacturer’s braggadocio is approved IP67 H2O and dirt resistant . That means a outmost framework looks a lot some-more durable, and a capacitive keys have been transposed with 3 physical, clicky buttons.

On a program side, we’re still looking during Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and a latest Samsung TouchWiz UI, including title Galaxy S4 facilities like WatchON, a Peel-based TV controller app, that uses a front-mounted IR blaster. S Health is on-board too, along with a full apartment of Samsung apps and camera capabilities like ‘drama shot’ and ‘sound and shot.’ There’s also a new ‘aqua shot’ mode for holding underwater pics.

You get a thought — it’s radically a Galaxy S4 in a re-worked, sturdier chassis. Samsung says a Galaxy S4 Active will have a tellurian recover this summer, with a U.S. and Sweden saying recover first. In a UK, retailer Phones4U has reliable that it’ll offer a Active “when it becomes available.” There’s no word of that U.S. carriers will launch a device only yet, we’ve seen leaked images of a Active with ATT branding in new days. Samsung adds that a device will be during a “Premiere 2013” uncover in London on Jun 20, and we’ll be live from that eventuality to move we hands-on coverage.

We’ve got some-more photos after a break.
