AT&T officially announced the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active over a week ago. This variant of the Korean manufacturer’s latest flagship is water and dustproof. AT&T said that the device will be launched on June 21st for $199.99 coupled with a two year contract. Pre-orders begun on June 14th. It appears that AT&T has already started shipping the device, two days before the scheduled launch. AT&T’s web page for Galaxy S4 now reads “Your Samsung Galaxy S 4 Active will be shipped on June 19, 2013.”
Now there’s no guarantee that everyone will be receiving their devices today. For example if you made your pre-order yesterday, the device might not arrive today. If pre-order was made on June 14th, perhaps your unit might be shipped today. There’s really no yardstick here to judge this, its mere speculation. The device itself doesn’t feature any major changes as opposed to the conventional Galaxy S4. It ships with Android 4.2.2 pre-installed, has a 5 inch full HD 1080p display, 1.9GHz Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB RAM. Just yesterday AT&T announced that it will also launch Galaxy Note 8.0 on June 21st as well.
