A new report reveals supposed launch windows for various Samsung Galaxy products, including the rugged Galaxy S4 Active but also the Galaxy Mega, Galaxy S4 Zoom and Galaxy S4 Mini.

After revealing Eastern European purported launch dates for the Galaxy Tab 3 versions, Sam Mobile is back with similar information for upcoming Samsung smartphones.

Just as before, the actual release dates aren’t mentioned for either model, only weeks are given. And just as before, it looks like these are launch windows for the European versions of these upcoming handsets.

In total, we’re looking at five different devices, of which the most interesting is the rugged Galaxy S4. The Galaxy S4 Active will apparently land in Metallic Orange according to the publication, and will hit stores in mid-July.

No matter how accurate Sam Mobile has been in the past with Samsung-related rumors, we’ll still take everything with a pinch of salt until Samsung actually confirms these details. After all, of the five devices in the following list, only the Galaxy Mega 6.3 and Galaxy Mega 5.8 have been officially announced, while the rugged Galaxy S4 has been confirmed by a Samsung exec, but not by the Active name and an actual announcement is not available yet.

As for the Galaxy S4 Mini and the Galaxy S4 Zoom, we also lack official details for them.

That said, here’s when these smartphones will reportedly be available for purchase (pricing details for these devices have not been mentioned):

  • GT-I9152ZWA*** – White – week 20 (May 13-19) – Galaxy Mega 5.8
  • GT-I9152ZKA*** – Black – week 25 (June 17-23) – Galaxy Mega 5.8
  • GT-I9200ZKA*** – Black – week 19 (May 6-12) – Galaxy Mega 6.3
  • GT-I9200ZWA*** – White – week 21 (May 20-26) – Galaxy Mega 6.3
  • GT-I9192ZWA*** – White – week 29 (July 15-21) – Galaxy S4 mini
  • GT-I9192ZKA*** – Black – week 29 (July 15-21) – Galaxy S4 mini
  • GT-I9295MOA*** – Metallic Orange – week 29 (July 15-21) – Galaxy S4 Active
  • SM-C1010ZKA*** – Black – week 23 (June 3-9) – Galaxy S4 Zoom

    Lets hope the rugged S4 is available with more than 16Gb as the 9Gb or so left for users on the basic S4 is just not enough for serious users. AT&T in the USA have acknowledged this with the availability of a 32Gb version of the S4 from May 10th.

      totally agree!!!! i also hope they put the octacore in it :D that would be really nice

        Please not why its only limited to 9gb there is no slow down if its all being used unlike others I.e. I be thinking they limited it so they do not get the same problems as the gs3

    I doubt either of these S4 xxxx variants will actually be S4s in terms of HW.
