The release date of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active on AT&T is June 21, but it seems that the carrier is shipping the devices to customers earlier.

According to AT&T, both the Urban Gray and the Dive Blue version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active are already shipping to customers, as of June 19. The funny thing is that, with the devices already sent to customers, this can hardly be called a pre-order process anymore.

If you want to take a look at the AT&T-exclusive device in real life before you actually purchase it, Punk Panda, a user of Chinese social network Weibo, has posted some hands-on photos, including one that shows the back of the device with the AT&T branding.

There is also an image that shows the device with the back plate taken off, allowing you to take a look at the removable battery.

Also, in another picture, you can see the little rubber plug protecting the USB port from water and dust. All of the images give the impression of a very sturdy device, which is exactly what was expected of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active.
