The Samsung Galaxy S4 Active has been around for some time already, being one of the rugged models from Samsung that is able to withstand more than just regular wear and tear. Having said that, it seems that the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active has just received a bump in its chipset, where the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset is now thrown into the mix, giving users another option other than picking up the standard issue SHV-E330S Galaxy S4 in SK-Telecom’s smartphone family over in South Korea. Needless to say, this bumped up device would arrive with support for LTE-A networks (of up to 150 Mbps, theoretically speaking).
Other than the updated SoC as well as 2.3GHz quad-core processor and Adreno 330 GPU, the updated Samsung Galaxy S4 Active would also sport better hardware specifications, where you will be able to enjoy a 13-megapixel shooter which has a far higher resolution count than the 8-megapixel camera on the existing Samsung Galaxy S4 Active, alongside a new color scheme. Despite that, it is also slightly lighter, while arriving in white. As for the rest of the hardware specifications, it will sport a 5” Full HD display, a 2,600mAh battery, and IP67 certification. It remain to be seen whether it will be available internationally.
