Samsung have finally launched the Galaxy S4 Active in the UK today. The water and dust-proof variant of Samsung’s flagship device of the year was initially scheduled to arrive sometime in June but due to to some undisclosed reasons, the device was unveiled today. The SIM-free versions can now be purchased from multiple retailers including Carphone Warehouse for £529.95, Unlocked-mobiles £494.98 and Clove UK. Our friends in the US got their hands on the device last month when AT&T announced their own version of the S4 Active available for $199 on a two year contract.
As far as the specs are concerned, the Active has a 5 inch 1080p Super AMOLED FULL HD display, 1.9 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, 16 GB of storage , 8-megapixel camera, 2GB of RAM, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, a 2,600 battery, LTE and just like the original GS4 will be running Android 4.2.2 with Samsung’s Nature TouchWiz UX UI. The Galaxy S4 Active is available in Urban Gray, Dive Blue and Orange Flame colors and can be submerged in three feet of water for half an hour.
