It appears that the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active has made its way to Malaysia. The rugged smartphone, which boasts IP67 rating for water and dust resistance, has been spotted retailing locally for RM1899.
First announced in June, the Galaxy S4 Active made its official appearance at the Samsung Premiere event later that same month alongside the other GS4 variants including the Galaxy S4, Galaxy S4 Mini and Galaxy S4 Zoom. Besides the robust chassis, the GS4 Active sports the same 1.9GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 chipset used in the LTE variant of the GS4 and retains pretty much the same specs as the regular GS4, with the exception of a TFT 5-inch Full HD screen and an 8MP rear camera (over the Super AMOLED screen and 13MP shooter found on the regular S4).
When asked, a Samsung Malaysia representative has stated that the S4 Active is not yet available officially, but that more details will be available in the next week or two. It is most likely that the GS4 Active available now has been brought in via third party distributors, but we suspect that the official retail price of the GS4 Active may not stray far from what we’ve seen today.
