The Galaxy S4 has proven itself to be a popular smartphone since its release earlier in the year, but a new version is set to go on sale at some point in the next couple of months, to give UK buyers an alternative to the original flagship device.
TechRadar reports that an official Samsung statement has confirmed the impending arrival of the Galaxy S4 Active, which is effectively identical to the standard S4, apart from the fact that it is designed to be far more durable.
That means you get a quad core 1.9GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, a five inch 1080p Super AMOLED screen and the latest version of Android, all wrapped up in a chassis that is resistant to water and dust.
You should be able to drop the Galaxy S4 Active in a glass of water without it suddenly becoming a very expensive paper weight. The phone will also be able to take underwater snaps, although the 13 megapixel camera of the standard S4 has been replaced with an eight megapixel unit here, which means it is not quite as capable in the photography department.
Samsung is holding an event in London later this month, during which the Galaxy S4 Active will be shown in more detail.
