We kind of got used to making reports for the Samsung Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S4 Mini devices and forgot about the other rumors and speculations that involve this smartphone manufacturer. Earlier, Samsung has promised that will introduce a new version of a smartphone that will be waterproof. Well, Samsung has confirmed that the new version, Galaxy S4 Active, will be launched this summer and it will be completely waterproof and dust resistant.
Many rumors are suggesting that this device will be launched at the already scheduled event in London on June 20. As it seems, this device will be able to last 3 ft under water for 30 minutes. This revolutionary product by Samsung will have a-5inch LCD display with pixel density of 443. It will run on the Jelly Bean Android OS version 4.2.2 and will have an 8-mpix camera along with LED flash. It will be powered by a quad-core processor with clock speed of 1.9 GHz. The manufacturer of the processor is still unknown.
There will be some interesting features, too. You will be able to use it with your gloves on. The camera will have “aqua-mode” that will let you shoot perfect pictures while under water. It’s made for those who don’t want to get their phone dirty and to damage it if dropped in water. This S4 Active is made to be a rough version of the original GS4 and at first glance, its design is smooth and not very different. It has a very protective casing and we can say it looks much stronger than the regular GS4.
According to Samsung, this S4 Active device will be available in the UK first and then in Sweden. You will be able to choose from more color options like Orange Flare color, Dive Blue and Urban Grey. There are no indicators for the price though, but after the event in London we will probably know something about that, as well.
Honestly, I like what I see. Adding another smartphone into the Galaxy S-family is a proof that Samsung is making the line rich with devices that can satisfy everyone’s taste. With a smartphone that is waterproof and dust resistant, this company will definitely attract more users. AT&T was mentioned to be the possible official carrier but specific details hasn’t been shared. The summer is here, I assume you are ready for your vacation and all you need now is a waterproof smartphone that will bring you another experience and of course underwater pictures that everyone seems to like.
