Samsung is everywhere, it’s difficult to escape it, be it the promo adverts or fans carrying around their phones and tablets. And while the Korean tech giant likes to serve its consumers with everything, they’re moving the ruggedized phones direction and are reportedly prepping a rugged version of Galaxy S4.
The Wall Street Journal has been top of this news, Samsung will be releasing a ruggedized version of the Galaxy S4 and naming it Galaxy S4 Active. This product is going to be waterproof and dustproof. The design inspiration for it will be derived from Galaxy S 4. The device is expected to be released in July of 2013.
The fact to note is this isn’t a rumor, or hype, in the recent release of Galaxy S4 in Dubai (UAE), the President of Samsung Gulf Electronics Mr. Young Soo Kim confirmed that the Galaxy S4 active is on its way into the market. Even though the two featured mentioned by him, are those the Sony Xperia Z already possesses. We’ll just have to wait for the end product and see what edge Samsung will have over Sony Xperia Z.
Ruggedised phones are the future, we need to have phones that can handle some rough times, especially with the touch screens and high prices. What do you think of this move by Samsung?
