We love leakers! Don’t you? Manufacturers and carriers probably hate them though …
Anyway, you guys remember the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active right? Among the mediocre (S4 Mini) or downright bizarre (S4 Zoom) Galaxy S4 spin-offs, the Galaxy S4 Active is, in our opinion, the only one worthy of its name.
Until 2013, most rugged devices have been a joke, as far as processing power goes. However, the S4 Active will handle anything you throw at it (apps, games, whatever) and still be able to take a beating in the meantime (or survive underwater).
It has already been announced that the smartphone will be an AT&T exclusive in the States. And if you were interested to see how it looks in some real life photos (no renders or anything of the sorts), we have just what you need.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 Active release date at AT&T is scheduled for June 21st and will set you back $199.99 on a two year contract.
As far as the differences between the Active and the original S4 go (other than those concerning build materials/quality), the rugged version sports a TFT capacitive touchscreen instead of a Super AMOLED panel (resolution and ppi are the same and it also features the “Glove Touch” technology), its camera has been downgraded from 13MP to 8MP (it comes with “Aqua Mode” though), and it’s a bit heavier and bulkier (not easily noticeable).
Well, what do you think about the Active? Are you planing on getting one? Did you already go with the already released Galaxy S4? Let us know in the comments section.
