You've probably caught on that Samsung held a press event in London today where they unveiled a bunch of GALAXY S4 variants. The last one we have for you today is the GALAXY S4 Active, a smartphone designed for an active lifestyle that might be hazardous to other electronic devices.


The GALAXY S4 Active is designed to be resistant to dust and water, allowing you to take it with you to the desert, while working, or while swimming. It can be submerged at a depth of one meter (3 feet) for up to 30 minutes. The camera will even work underwater, allowing you to take pictures while in the pool, ocean, or other wet location.

It sports a 1.9 GHz quad-core processor powered by a 2,600mAh battery. It features a 5-inch full HD TFT LCD with a pixel density of 443ppi. The rear-camera is 8MP and features a new 'Aqua Mode' to take great pictures under water. It also comes with all of the features of the Samsung GALAXY S4 introduced in March.
