A new rumor says that Samsung’s rugged Galaxy S4 version will hit AT&T stores in the future alongside another new Samsung smartphone reportedly called “Zest.”

The information comes from @evleaks, a Twitter account known for the various details and images provided about mobile devices ahead of their launch. While the source has been rather accurate in the past, we’ll still remind you that nothing is confirmed just yet, so take everything with the appropriate grain of salt.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Active

An image of the Galaxy S4 Active is not provided at this time, as we’re only told given AT&T’s model number for the device, SGH-I537. The current AT&T Galaxy S4 version has model number SGH-I337, which is very similar to Active’s rumored number:

An user agent profile for the SGH-I537 seems to reveal that we’re looking at a Samsung device that would feature a 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) display, which is what we’d expect from the Active in the first place.

The Galaxy S4 Active has been the star of various reports in the past – only yesterday we’ve seen a different report saying the handset will hit Europe at some point in July – with Samsung already confirming that a rugged Galaxy S4 is in the works. However, the company never confirmed the “Active” name for the device.

Samsung Zest

While the Galaxy S4 Active is expected to be a high-end handset – it’s logical to assume that the handset would be a regular Galaxy S4 version with rugged capabilities on top – this rumored Zest is said to be an entry-level device:

Specs and features are not available for the handset, but a user profile for it reveals that it will feature a display with 800 x 480 resolution.

We’ll be back with more details about these new AT&T handsets once they’re available.
