A new report reveals that the newest member of the Galaxy S4 family could hit stores only next month in some countries.
Earlier today, Samsung announced the Galaxy S4 Active rugged handset, a Galaxy S4 version ready to withstand tougher day-to-day conditions. But, as always with new device announcements, actual availability details have not been offered.
Sam Mobile says that the handset will be released in the UK on July 1 according to its sources, but the date is yet to be confirmed by Samsung.
The company did say that the handset will be available for purchase later this summer, with certain markets getting it initially, including the U.S. and Sweden. Pricing details are not available at this time, but we wouldn’t expect it to be priced that differently compared to the regular model.
The Galaxy S4 Active will be available in three color options at launch, Urban Grey, Dive Blue and Orange Flare – we’ve already seen grey, teal and red versions in leaked photos, so we would assume those are the models that will be available in stores in the near future.
What’s certain is that the Galaxy S4 Active will be shown at the Samsung Premiere 2013 event in London on June 20, at which point we may find out more details about its price and global launch dates.
