Message Text: Samsung today announced the GALAXY S4 Active, designed for active users who want to stay connected while exploring environments.

The GALAXY S4 Active has qualified protection from dust and water (IP67). The fully sealed design keeps dust particles out and protects against water damage for up to 30 minutes of submergence at a depth of one meter. Equipped with a water-resistant earphone jack, the GALAXY S4 Active frees you to use earphones in more adventurous conditions, in the same way you've used them in normal ones.

Under the hood, the device is featuring a 1.9 GHZ Quad-Core processor and 2,600mAh battery. It comes with a 5.0" Full HD TFT LCD screen (443 PPI) with 'Glove Touch', enabling you to operate the touchscreen while wearing gloves. The smartphone is also equipped with an 8-megapixel rear camera, featuring the 'Aqua Mode', which can be used to increase clarity for enhanced underwater images and video. The volume key located on the side of the device can be used as a camera key. Additionally, the camera transforms into a LED flash light to assist in low-light and nighttime activities with a long press of the volume key.



The GALAXY S4 Active also incorporates features of the GALAXY S4, including 'S Travel (Trip Advisor)' and 'S Translator'. The camera interface is designed to make capturing and sharing more engaging with multiple shooting modes including 'Drama Shot,' and 'Sound & Shot,' which stores sound and voice together with the image to capture the moment in a visual/audio format. With 'Story Album', photos taken with the GALAXY S4 Active are collected and sorted according to a user's timeline, geo-tagging information or a specific event to create an organized photo album. To help facilitate sharing, users can also use the 'Group Play' function to enjoy music, photos, documents and games together and across various devices.

'Samsung Smart Pause' enables users to control of the screen using optical cues. While watching a video, the video pauses when you look away and starts right up again when returning to view, saving vital battery life and time spent rewinding. 'Air View' lets you preview the content of an email by simply hovering your fingers over the screen, which saves time and data. With 'Air Gesture', you can change the music track, scroll up and down on a web page, or accept a call with a simple wave of the hand. Additionally, 'S Health' helps you keep track of your personal health statistics.

Using the 'Samsung Hub,' users can access music, videos, books, games and engaging educational content. Users can also control their TV through Samsung WatchON's IR remote, which transforms the GALAXY S4 Active into a remote control for TVs, set-top boxes, and DVD players. Through 'WatchON', the GALAXY S4 Active also offers a selection of entertainment content including live TV, cable TV and video on demand, facilitated by the digital context provided by Samsung's EPG (Electronic Program Guide) system. 'ChatON' connects and facilitates group chats, media sharing and interacting in creative new ways using pictures, hand drawings or figures across mobile devices. Further enhancing the device?s sharing capabilities, users can use 'Samsung Link' to share and sync content across multiple Samsung digital devices.

The GALAXY S4 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.
