Samsung launches ruggedized Galaxy S4 Active with waterproofing
Samsung has launched the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/287024==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/05/30/second.samsung.galaxy.phone.to.pass.through.fcc.in .two.days/" rel='nofollow'>rumored</a> ruggedized version of its flagship smartphone. The <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/287025==http://global.samsungtomorrow.com/?p=24447" rel='nofollow'>Galaxy S4 Active</a> is a fully sealed device with IP67 certified protection from dust and water, can be submerged to a depth of 1 meter (3.2ft) for 30 minutes, and has been constructed to be able to withstand impacts better than the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/287026==http://www.electronista.com/reviews/samsung-galaxy-s-4.html" rel='nofollow'>original S4</a>. <br />
<br />
The five-inch full HD TFT LCD screen has a pixel density of 443ppi, and added "Glove Touch" to match its outdoor credentials. Inside is a quad-core 1.9GHz processor with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable memory, a rear 8-megapixel camera with LED flash, a front-facing 2-megapixel version, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, USB 2.0, and a 2,600mAh, with most specifications matching its predecessor, except for the camera. <br />
<br />
Software-wise, the Galaxy S4 Active has the same suite of apps as the Galaxy S4, but with a few slight changes. The volume key can now be used to load the camera or turn the LED flash into a torch, while the camera now has an "Aqua Mode" which adjusts the image for underwater shots. <br />
<br />
The US and Sweden will receive the Galaxy S4 Active first this summer, which will be available in a choice of gray, blue, and orange. Pricing was not disclosed, but it is likely to be similar to the Galaxy S4.
