Samsung Introduces the Galaxy S4 Active Officially
      #44797 - 06/05/13 10:18 AM

Samsung today announced the Galayx S4 Active, an IP67 certified rugged Android smartphone for dust proof and water resistant. The Android smartphone is powered by a 1.9GHz quad core CPU and comes with a 5" full HD display, an 8MP rear camera and a 2600mAh battery. Here's more info on this upcoming Galaxy S4 family smartphone:



The GALAXY S4 Active has qualified protection from dust and water (IP67), so you never have to leave the device at home during a long day at the beach or dusty hike. The fully sealed design keeps dust particles out and protects against water damage for up to 30 minutes of submergence at a depth of one meter. Equipped with a water-resistant earphone jack, the GALAXY S4 Active frees you to use earphones in more adventurous conditions, in the same way you've used them in normal ones.

'S Travel (Trip Advisor)' offers travel assistance, local information, and recommendations to provide a more seamless experience in an unfamiliar environment. 'S Translator' makes international travel easy by providing instant text or voice translation for emails and text messages.



The camera interface is designed to make capturing and sharing meaningful moments intuitive and more engaging with multiple shooting modes including 'Drama Shot', which allows users to see all the action in one continuous time-lapse, and 'Sound & Shot', which uniquely stores sound and voice together with the image to capture the moment in an immersive visual/audio format. With 'Story Album', photos taken with the GALAXY S4 Active are collected and sorted according to a user's timeline, geo-tagging information or a specific event to instantly create an organized photo album. To help facilitate sharing, users can also use the 'Group Play' function to enjoy music, photos, documents and games together and across various devices including GALAXY S4, GALAXY S4 mini, GALAXY Mega 6.3 and GALAXY Mega 5.8.

Here's our sneak peak video at the Galaxy S4 Active:
