Samsung Galaxy S4 Active

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?
