The Samsung Galaxy S4 Active, which AT&T announced as part of its smartphone lineup yesterday (after teasing it in a video) is now available for you to pre-order from the carrier’s website.
The device is available in two color versions, Urban Gray and Dive Blue, and can be yours for $199.99, with a two-year contract. If you decide to purchase the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active, you should know that it shouldn’t take too long for the device to get into your hands. Simulating an order on the AT&T website revealed that the device is expected to ship on June 18, which is next Tuesday, as you can see in the screenshot below.
The device, which Samsung has officially confirmed a little more than a week ago, is the rugged version of Samsung’s flagship smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S4, but comes in a body which should allow it to withstand whatever you may want to subject it to. It has IP67 certification, meaning that it is dust tight and it’s also waterproof at up to 1 meter in depth for up to 30 minutes.
On the specs side of things, the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active has a 5-inch screen at Full HD resolution and is powered by a 1.9GHz quad-core CPU and 2GB of RAM memory. It also has an 8-megapixel main camera, as well as a 2-megapixel front-facing one.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 Active runs Android 4.2.2, with Samsung adding some exclusive TouchWiz features on top, like S Travel, S Translator or Air View and Air Gesture. Furthermore, there’s also Aqua Mode, a feature that Samsung claims will improve images and videos you capture underwater with the smartphone’s camera.
All in all, a pretty good offering, especially for those enjoying a hike from time to time, or having a job where their phone is prone to accidents.
Do you plan on buying the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active?

Glad I got the regular SGS4 with the 13 mp camera instead.
