If there’s one thing Samsung has always excelled at, it’s blanketing the market with a variety of hardware configurations to fit just about anyone’s needs. You want a 6.8-inch phone? You got it. You need something cheaper for your 15 year old kid? You got that too. But what about those that have been looking for a ruggedized Samsung Galaxy S4? Well, it looks like you might soon have that too.

Speaking at press event, President of Samsung Gulf Young Soo Kim may have let the cat out of the bag, mentioning Samsung’s plans to introduce a water proof/dust proof in the near future. How near? Kim says in the coming weeks. While we start daydreaming of a ruggedized Galaxy S4 that can withstand the elements, I wouldn’t be surprised is it’s something more along the lines of the Galaxy S4 Mini we’ve been hearing about.

Of course, none of this is official and we wonder how much weight this off-the-cuff remark might hold. It wouldn’t be the first time a President or CEO has slipped up. We’re all just human. But what do you guys think? Would you be willing to sacrifice some aesthetics for a waterproof/dust proof Samsung Galaxy S4?
