Samsung updates Galaxy S4 Active smartphone

Here’s something that we don’t see happening every day – Samsung has decided to update the yet unreleased Galaxy S4 Active smartphone. The major change in the smartphone specs will be the inclusion of a more powerful SoC chip – instead of the initially planned Snapdragon 600 chip with four cores at 1.5 GHz and Adreno 320 graphics, the Galaxy S4 Active will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor.

Thus the smartphone will have four processing cores at 2.3 GHz each and Adreno 330 graphics. The rest of the specs remain the same – a 5-inch sensor Super AMOLED display at Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels, 441 ppi) with Gorilla Glass 2 protection, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal memory, a microSD card slot (up to 64 GB), a rear 8 MP camera and a front 1.9 MP camera, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC. The device will be powered by a 2600 mAh battery and will be housed in an IP67-certified chassis that makes it dirt-, water- and shock-resistant.

The Galaxy S4 Active will run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean when it becomes available later this year.
