Assuming that you’re somewhat familiar with what happened on the mobile market during these past several months, then you should be aware of the fact that the concept of dust and waterproof smartphones has gained a lot of grip lately. We’re not talking about those bulky smartphones which are designed specifically to take a beating and survive the North Pole. Nope, we’re referring to slim, beautiful gadgets that can still survive a shower or a quick swim in the ocean, such as the Xperia Z / Z1 or the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active.
The Galaxy S4 Active has been quite a success, and interestingly enough, fresh reports coming straight from the Korean media suggest that the manufacturer is considering the possibility of delivering more ruggedized flagship devices in the future, including a Note 3 waterproof variant.
