Samsung works on rugged Galaxy S4 smartphone

The Korean tech leader Samsung has been working on a new rugged version of its flagship smartphone – the Galaxy S4. The rugged version is almost done and should appear soon under the trade name Galaxy S4 Active.

The first unofficial pictures of the new device show a smartphone that features a somewhat new design when compared to the Galaxy S4. The rugged version now comes with three front screen buttons and a reinforced rear shell with four screws. Most of the specs remain the same though – a 4.99-inch Super AMOLED display at 1080p resolution, an Adreno 320 GPU and the same quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor at 1.9 GHz found in the Galaxy S4. The new smartphone also keeps the famous 13 MP rear camera.

There’s no word on the release date but the Galaxy S4 Active has successfully passed Bluetooth SIG certification, which hints the new smartphone may be on the market soon.
