Purported rugged Samsung Galaxy S4 Active leaked

Posted:  May 20, 2013   By:    13 comments   


Samsung is not letting Sony having all the fun in the water and here we have is the purported Samsung Galaxy S4 Active with water and dust resistance. Seen as a direct competitor of Sony’s Xperia Z, the S4 Active comes with top notch specs such as a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 Quad-Core 1.9GHz processor with a 5″ Full HD display like the current flagship device.

Over at the front, it comes with 3 physical buttons which makes it usable in any tough situations while the opposite side sports a metal looking back secured with bolts. In terms of imaging, it comes with a 8MP camera instead of a 13MP shooter found on the S4. If the rest of the specs are similar as the S4, it should also pack a 13MP shooter as well.

Apart from the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active, more S4 variants such as the Galaxy S4 mini, Galaxy S4 Mega are expected to be released as well. This was unofficially confirmed in the description of Samsung’s WatchON app which has been changed at time of posting.

Head after the break for another shot of the S4 Active.

The source said 8MP only.


    Fixed. Thanks for the alert.


If it's confirmed and coming to Malaysia and if it's really the same I9505's SoC (Snapdragon 600 APQ8064AB) inside, I'll get this w/o breaking a sweat for sure. The added water and dust resistance trumps eye candy design any day imho.


waterproof plastic? And active means you can submerge the phone into water. I wonder why they don't call the ZR and the Z active. Sony Active ZR thats how it should be according to samsung. Copycats.


    … and your productive point was?


    Because the zr and z are look beautiful without even look rugged


what level of dust/waterproofness it is?


    From what I've read so far it's more about water "resistance" not water proof and probably not IP57 levels. Let's wait for the finalized specs then.


      what difference between water proof and water resistance?


        Water resistant: can take a few drops but not fully submerge into water. Waterproo: can be FULLY submerged in water


The bottom keys look like old Xperia.


    Sony : it's time to sue Sammy.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 likely isn't the reinvention of the mobile phone. Still not like very last year's Galaxy S4, there's a very good possibility a few of the brand-new abilities revealed might be of actual use standard people.

Needless to say, several minutes with the Galaxy S5 wasn't plenty of time to achieve a complete diagnosis on the cellphone, nevertheless it was sufficient to have a primary experience on what Samsung's recent giving might and can't do.
