Welcome back guys! As you are all well aware by now the
Samsung Galaxy S4 has been released to the world and is on sale globally as we type. What you may not know is that while the S4 wreaks havoc among the mobile industry, there are rumours of a bigger brother on the way. Make way for the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active, pictured to the right the device claims to be a dust and water proof upgrade of the S4. The image shown has come from GSM arena, a credible source among the mobile industry. Google also reveals that the internet is once again full of speculation surrounding the device. But what could we expect from the S4 Active?
According to the benchmark rumours, the device should come shipped with a 1.9GHz quad-core processor (most likely the Snapdragon 600), 2GB of RAM, a 5″ 1080p display at a pixel density of 480 and a Adreno 320 GPU. Pretty impressive specs but the main attraction of the device will no doubt be the rumoured water and dust proof qualities of the phone. It appears that all front-facing buttons are physical and slightly protrude from the bottom, a move that might have helped Samsung make it more resilient to the elements. As for that red backing, the four screws in the top and bottom corners add a nice rugged touch, but it does appear that the back is still removable if you look closely in the top left hand corner.
