The rumored Galaxy S4 waterproof variant has been leaked numerous for the past few weeks but today Samsung finally announced the Galaxy S4 Active. But what’s new? Check them out below.
As expected, the Galaxy S4 Active closely resembles the nature inspired design of the new Samsung flagship. We have already witnessed the unveiling on several products that borrowed the design of its best device and it’s obvious that they will continue to do it in the following months as they have received tremendous success with it.
The handset is very robust thanks to its high degree (IP67) of dust and water protection – giving it the ability to be submerged in water up to a meter deep for as long as 30 minutes. However, it’s also thicker at 9.1mm from 7.9mm.
On the internals, it’s pretty much the same with a few minor touches. Take a look at the specs list below.
