    The Galaxy S4 Active, with its ruggedized exterior, was no doubt a hit for Samsung, since they thought it important enough to give it an upgrade that would put a Snapdragon 800 processor underneath. But was it enough of a hit to make Samsung start working on a low-cost variant of the device? Well, that seems to be the case, as a mid-range device – sporting model number GT-I8580 – with the S4 Active's looks has popped up on numerous places.

    Chinese certification forum Tenaa has published a photo of a device that has the ruggedized back, home, and menu buttons as seen on the standard S4 Active – there's little chance this will have S4 Active in its name, but it does serve as an indicator of Samsung's newfound interest in rugged devices. The specs, as revealed by a listing on GFXBench, include a rather low-resolution 4.65-inch screen (800×480), dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor, 1GB of RAM, 5-megapixel rear camera, 0.3-megapixel front-camera, and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

    Expect this one to launch before the year ends, though whether an international launch outside Korea and China will happen remains to be seen.

    Soon after launching its 2013 flagship called the Galaxy S4, Samsung released a “rugged” variant of the same smartphone. It was called the Galaxy S4 Active only because of the fact that it is water and dust resistant, making it a good device to take up against the elements. It was never claimed that the […]
