Samsung-Galaxy-S4-Active-is-official-thin-waterproof-5-Full-HD-goodness[1]Samsung isn’t leaving much for its June 20th London event, it seems. After announcing the Intel-powered Galaxy Tab 3 set, it now made the rugged Galaxy S4 Active official.

the Active has a 5″ 1080×1920 pixels Full HD LCD display in a 9mm thin phone, a quad-core 1.9 GHz processor, 2 GB of RAM, an 8 MP camera on the back, LTE/HSPA+ radio, infrared beamer, 16 GB of internal memory plus a microSD slot, a decent 2600 mAh battery, and Android 4.2.2 to run it all, with all the goodies of the latest TouchWiz Nature UX.

The unit has IP67 certification, making the phone dust- and water-proof up to three feet deep for up to 30 minutes. Samsung has thrown in the “Glove Touch” mode, which lets you operate the display with mittens on, and the “Aqua Mode” in the camera app interface, which helps make better underwater pictures and video. Long-press the volume key up, and the powerful LED light becomes a torch, and that same volume rocker down can be used as a camera shutter key directly from locked mode.

The Active will be available for purchase beginning this summer, with initial retail in the U.S. and Sweden. It will be offered in three different color options: Urban Grey, Dive Blue and Orange Flare. Specific availability will vary depending on the market.”

No pricing details were announced today, but the phone will be previewed at the June 20th London event of Samsung, and we think it is heading to AT&T here in the states.
