When AT&T posted a pretty obvious teaser for a Samsung Galaxy S4 Active announcement yesterday we weren’t sure how long it would take them to get the announcement out today. The company didn’t waste any time, though, as it woke up bright and early to announce official plans to carry the rugged version of Samsung’s 2014 flagship. The device will be available from June 21st, and it’ll cost you just $200 and a two-year contract agreement to go along with it. AT&T will begin pre-sales tomorrow.
The rugged space is a bit of a new area for Samsung in regards to high-end devices, and the South Korean company has come with some heat to make competitors take notice. The Galaxy S4 Active features a 5-inch 1080p HD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel camera on the rear, a 2 megapixel camera on the front, Android 4.2 and more.
The phone’s IP67 specification makes it “life proof,” meaning you can do a cannon ball with this thing in your pocket and not worry about it. We obviously wouldn’t purposely subject the phone to such conditions, but if something like that does happen it’s nice not to have to worry. Be sure to keep this link bookmarked and return tomorrow to make sure you get one once they’re available. You can buy the device in “Dive Blue” and “Urban Gray.”
