Samsung declares waterproof Galaxy S4 Lively
Ruggedized GS4 launching this summer season, coming to the U.S. and Sweden first
After weeks of leaks, Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy S4 Active — a ruggedized, waterproof version of its flagship smartphone. The Galaxy S4 Active shares much of its internal hardware with the vanilla Galaxy S4, including a quad-core Snapdragon 600 CPU at 1.9GHz, 2GB of RAM, a 1080p (TFT, not AMOLED) display, 2600mAh battery and 16GB of internal storage, expandable via microSD. The camera’s taken a minor hit, going from 13MP on the regular GS4 to 8MP on the Active.
The main difference is the “fully sealed design” that the manufacturer’s boasting is certified IP67 water and dust resistant . That means the external chassis looks a lot more durable, and the capacitive keys have been replaced with three physical, clicky buttons.
On the software side, we’re still looking at Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and the latest Samsung TouchWiz UI, including headline Galaxy S4 features like WatchON, the Peel-based TV controller app, which uses a front-mounted IR blaster. S Health is on-board too, along with the full suite of Samsung apps and camera capabilities like ‘drama shot’ and ‘sound and shot.’ There’s also a new ‘aqua shot’ mode for taking underwater pics.
You get the idea — it’s essentially a Galaxy S4 in a re-worked, sturdier chassis. Samsung says the Galaxy S4 Active will have a global release this summer, with the U.S. and Sweden seeing release first. In the UK, retailer Phones4U has confirmed that it’ll offer the Active “when it becomes available.” There’s no word of which U.S. carriers will launch the device just yet, we’ve seen leaked images of the Active with AT&T branding in recent days. Samsung adds that the device will be at its “Premiere 2013” show in London on June 20, and we’ll be live from that event to bring you hands-on coverage.
We’ve got more photos after the break.
