AT&T and Samsung Mobile today announced the Samsung Galaxy S 4 Active, an evolution of the popular Galaxy S 4 that has been designed to withstand the hazards of everyday life. The Galaxy S 4 Active is IP67 certified to be water-resistant and dust-resistant, making it perfect to take on any summer vacation whether it’s camping or the beach. It also has an Aqua Mode feature that lets you capture photos and videos underwater. Its 5-inch FHD TFT display is made from Gorilla Glass, which is specially built to be tougher and more scratch-resistant. When it comes to the hardware and software it is identical to the regular Galaxy S 4, so it has Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) and a quad-core processor.
“Continuing AT&T’s legacy as the first carrier to launch the Samsung Galaxy series, we’re excited to offer the next evolution of the popular Galaxy S 4. The Galaxy S 4 Active is a high-performance smartphone with a stylish, protective design to keep up with the demands of everyday life. It’s truly summer-proof,” said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president – Devices and Developer Services, AT&T. “With its quad-core processor and access to the nation’s largest 4G network and fastest 4G LTE network you can stay connected nearly anywhere life takes you.”
