Samsung is hosting an event taking place on June 20 in London in which a Galaxy related product and a Windows Phone ATIV related product will be announced. According to a couple of recent press image leaks, we now believe one of the Galaxy products to be announced will be the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active for AT&T.
The Galaxy S4 Active is a smartphone that is similar internally to the Galaxy S4, but offers a rugged exterior protecting it against water and dust. In addition, it features three physical navigation buttons on the bottom of the device for easy button access. In terms of hardware, the Galaxy S4 Active offers a 5 inch 1080p display, Snapdragon 600 1.9GHz quad-core processor, 8MP rear facing camera, and 2GB of RAM. As you can tell, the Galaxy S4 Active is very similar to the Galaxy S4, except in the camera department where it is downgraded to 8MP.
We expect Samsung to announce the Galaxy S4 Active for AT&T on June 20 and hopefully see the device launch with the carrier shortly thereafter. Essentially, the Galaxy S4 Active is a rugged Galaxy S4, which may be a great smartphone for those prone to drop or damage their devices.
