Samsung unveils rugged, water resistant Galaxy S4 Active smartphone

Samsung logoSamsung has announced a new rugged addition to the Galaxy family: the Galaxy S4 Active. The Galaxy S4 Active has an IP67 rating for dust and water protection, and is also fully sealed against water damage for up to 30 minutes at a depth of up to three feet. The smartphone’s earphone jack is even water resistant to keep water from damaging the phone without having to use a plug or flap to cover it (a la the Sony Xperia ZR).

The Galaxy S4 Active uses a 1.9 GHz quad-core processor (2GB RAM) and a 2600 mAh battery for power. The LCD measures five-inches and is full HD resolution with 443 ppi. The screen of the smartphone is also designed to be usable in cold weather while you're wearing gloves.

The smartphone supports GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, NFC, and runs Android 4.2.2 for the operating system. Internal storage is 16 GB and a memory card slot allows for storage expansion.

Other features include an eight-megapixel rear camera that can record video and take still shots. The camera even has an Aqua Mode to enhance your ability to take video and still images underwater.

The device also supports Air Gesture technology allowing users to change music tracks, scroll web pages, and accept a call by waving a hand over the screen.
