Samsung has officially announced the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active, the new version of the standard Samsung Galaxy S4 which is dust proof and water resistant, and comes with a few adjustments in the hardware configuration.
Good news first – the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active is here and it is a dust proof and water resistant smartphone which has an IP67 certification, meaning that the device will protect the internal system from dust and will also be resistant to water for up to 30 minutes, at a depth of one meter.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 Active has a 5-inch full HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and has an extremely high pixel density of 443 pixels per inch (ppi). Fortunately, the Galaxy S4 Active is powered by a 1.9 GHz quad-core processor, not a dual-core processor as it was being rumored earlier and has 2GB of RAM.
The Galaxy S4 Active comes with 16GB of internal storage out of which 11.25GB will be available to consumers whereas the remaining part will be occupied by the system software and the apps that are bundled along with it. The device does have a microSD card support using which you can expand storage space by up to 64GB.
Instead of a 13MP primary camera, the Galaxy S4 Active has an 8MP primary camera and a 2MP secondary camera. The Galaxy S4 Active has a special camera app which includes the new ‘Aqua Mode’ from Samsung which will allow you to take better pictures and videos underwater.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 Active is a perfect smartphone for those who are on the run often, and those who work outdoors most of the time. In fact, any consumer can check it out because the Galaxy S4 Active is a smartphone that can be used anywhere and everywhere. The device will be available in Urban Grey, Dive Blue and Orange Flare, no white color option as of now.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 Active will initially be launched in the United States and Sweden in summer this year, and should soon be available globally.
