Coming to the US and Europe this summer is the Galaxy S 4 Active — a rugged version of the current S4. While sporting the IP67 water and dust protection — able to survive three feet of water for up to 30 minutes — as well as a 5-inch (TFT LCD) 1080p display (443 ppi), there’s an unspecified 1.9GHz quad-core processor to get the work done. Alongside LTE radios and Android 4.2.2, the GS4 Active packs an 8-megapixel camera with LED flash, while the front-facer will take up to two-megapixel stills — a stark difference from the original S4’s 13 megapixel main camera.
To top off the package, there’s a water-resistant headphone jack, “aqua mode” to improve the camera’s performance underwater, and finally, Samsung’s screen enhancements (also on the original S4) that allows one to use gloves on the screen. In the US, the S4 Active will most likely launch on AT&T. Three color variants will be produced by Samsung: Urban Grey, Dive Blue and Orange Flare. No word on pricing, yet.
