Samsung Galaxy S4 Active Goes Official, a Waterproof Galaxy S4




Today, South Korean mobile phone maker Samsung Electronics officially unveiled the Galaxy S4 Active smartphone, a dust- and water-resistant member of the popular Galaxy series of devices.

Just as previously rumored, the new device packs a 5-inch full HD touchscreen display, along with a 1.9GHz quad-core processor inside, and 2GB of RAM. Aimed mainly at people who live a dynamic lifestyle, the smartphone arrives on the market with qualified protection from dust and water (IP67), so that one could enjoy its features in all conditions. The phone can resist for up to 30 minutes submerged in 1 meter of water, as it packs not only a water-resistant earphone jack, but also a unique construction that enables users to take photos even when underwater. “The GALAXY S4 Active is the newest addition to the GALAXY series and is purposefully designed for active users who love the outdoors,” said JK Shin, CEO and President of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics. “Samsung has taken the innovative features of the GALAXY S4 and added breakthrough protective design elements to create a device that thrives in an active environment and is built for a lifestyle of travel and exploration.”

The new Galaxy S4 Active packs an 8-megapixel photo snapper on the back, as well as a 2MP front camera for making video calls. Furthermore, the device sports 16GB of internal memory, along with a microSD memory card slot with support for up to 64GB of additional storage, and a 2600mAh battery inside. Samsung also included WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity inside the smartphone, along with NFC, GPS receiver, the usual set of sensors, and LTE Cat3, HSPA+ 42/5.76Mbps, EDGE/GPRS Class 12.  Samsung Galaxy S4 Active arrives on the market with Google’s Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean platform loaded on top, as well as with the features and capabilities that the latest flagship device from the company, the Galaxy S 4, was launched with.

The new mobile phone is set to become available for purchase later this summer. Initially, it will be launched in the United States and Sweden, in three different color options, namely Urban Grey, Dive Blue and Orange Flare.
