This Summer, Samsung Galaxy S4 Active is a waterproof S4 .

Samsung's long-rumored Galaxy S4 Active has entered the realm of officialdom at last, and will be out in the UK this summer, Samsung has confirmed.

The S4 Active is a rugged version of the regular S4, aimed at outdoorsy types who don't want a phone that will faint at the first sight of dust or water. The phone has a sealed design that - Samsung promises-- will protect the S4 Active from water damage for up to 30 minutes of submergence at a depth of one meter.

More than enough protection against dropping it in your pint , then but Samsung  also reckons you''ll be able to take underwater photos using the Active's 8--megapixel camera , and a new 'Aqua Mode'.

Unlike the disappointing Galaxy S4 Mini, the Active's specifications actually bear plenty of relation to the regular S4, You get a 1.9GHz quad-core processor and a 5-inch 1080p screen, with the only notable difference being the 8-megapixel camera, down from 13 megapixel on the normal S4.

It's a little chunkier, thanks to the bulky protective casing ,but for those worried about smashing their phone, that's not much of a sacrifice . Personally I quite like the exposed screws and industrial styling  you get on the S4 Active's rear casing .

Samsung S4 Active will be out in the UK this summer. Phones 4u has confirmed they'll be selling the phone.
