Galaxy S4 Active, Water Resistant Phone Announced at #SamsungPremiere2013 Event – Specs & Features

After selling off 10 Million Galaxy S4 smartphones, it’s now time for Samsung to pop out one more smartphone which is not only stylish but also comes with tons of features which is dubbed as “Galaxy S4 Active” which shows up on the Official page of Samsung Tomorrow. Powered with 1.9Ghz of Snapdragon 600 Processor, this device comes with various other features which we will be checking out in the due course of this article. You will be surprised to know that this smartphone just like Xperia Z and Panasonic Eluga will be water resistant and dust proof device which is actually amazing.


Specs and Features of Galaxy S4 Active:
Powered with 1.9 Ghz of Snapdragon 600 Processor, this device comes with the Adreno 320 GPU along with the 2GB of RAM and 5 inched stunning AMOLED Display and not the IPS Display as used by other manufacturers. The rest of the features are expected to remain the same as that of Galaxy S4 which also means that this phone too won’t be coming out with the FM Radio which is again the sad part. While the likes of LUMIA from NOKIA are trying to put in the FM Radio feature, Samsung is trying to forget the same. From outside, this smartphone looks amazing with plastic back which has been replaced with a metallic shell as you can see in the above image.

    This phone is an epic fail. I used to have this phone until I replaced it with a ‘Real’ waterproof phone. I dropped this on our tub and water got inside the phone somehow killing the phone. I had it replaced but decided to give the replacement instead to my brother. I now use Xperia Z1 and have tried dropping it inside the tub full of water but this time the internals stays dry and still functioning perfectly as of this time ^_^. Now that’s waterproof!

        Yes, it is waterproof up to 1m depth and 30 min duration like all devices with IP67 certificate. You find more about the IP certification here In the IP67 code the “6” is for dust and “7” for water.

    Just use Tune in radio app and you can tune into just about any station in the world and with pro version you can record a particular program that you like and even set a time ahead to record the program automatically. You will however need WiFi or 3g to run the app, unless you have already recorded your desired program of course!

    Water resistant. Does that mean it’s usable under water?
