Samsung Galaxy S4
The Samsung Galaxy S4 Active, rumored for a while now as a rugged version of the Korean company’s flagship device, now has some new clues pointing towards it.
A device bearing the model name GT-I9295, which Sam Mobile has recently said that it belongs to the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active, has appeared in a recent Bluetooth SIG filing. Just a few days ago, the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom has also appeared in the same place.
What’s even more interesting is that the same model number also appears in a User Agent Profile, as discovered by TechTastic, and that same user profile includes some more interesting information. The device, which has also been apparently confirmed by a Samsung executive, reportedly has Full HD screen resolution, just like the original Samsung Galaxy S4.
Just a few days ago there was a rumor about the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active coming to AT&T, but under model number SGH-I537. The Full HD resolution is also mentioned in those rumors.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 Active seems very close to being released, but it wouldn’t be Samsung’s first rugged phone – you may remember the Xcover and Xcover 2. You can check out a video hands-on of the latter below.
Would you be interested in purchasing the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active when it comes out? Are you a fan of rugged devices?

Depends what I have to give up. I won’t be ingested if it’s anything less than s4.
well, if costs same as GS4 or $50 more maximum, and same design, or slightly thicker… i would get it, other than that… would get the normal GS4 haha
If they can make it more durable, waterproof and more secure – I read part of the idea is so that it can be used by the government and military – then I would certainly be interested. After all, this is a phone with enough horsepower to last and keep up with most of what comes along down the pike over the next two or three years; might as well – increase the chances of it surviving an occasional mishap along the way till its end of life naturally comes.
