The new devices are aimed at government and business users who need to be able to use devices in environments that aren't friendly to electronic devices. The Galaxy S 4 device, possibly known as the Galaxy S 4 Active, will be dust proof and waterproof, yet hopefully remain the look and feel of the newly released Galaxy S 4.

Samsung is also said to be working on a miniaturized version of the Galaxy S 4, one that would feature a screen of just 4.3 inches. This is tentatively set to launch in July.
