We’ve heard about an upgraded Galaxy S4 Active quite a few times over the past couple of months, and now Samsung has made the revamped S4 Active official in its home country. The Galaxy S4 Active LTE-A is now available in South Korea, with support with SK Telecom’s LTE-Advanced data speeds of up to 150 mbps and a Snapdragon 800 processor under the hood.
Unlike the Galaxy S4 LTE-A, the Galaxy S4 Active LTE-A sports more than just a faster processor and network speeds – Samsung has upgraded the camera on the device as well, and it now sports a 13-megapixel camera as the Galaxy Note 3 and S4, though it remains to be seen if it’s exactly the same in image quality as well. Other specs remain the same as the standard S4 Active – the device is still IP67-certified for dust- and water-resistance, has a 5-inch 1080p LCD display, 32GB of storage and a microSD slot, hardened home, back, and menu keys, and a 2,600 mAh battery.
The Galaxy S4 Active LTE-A will be a South Korean exclusive for now and is priced at 900,000 won (around $855). An international launch could happen somewhere down the line as it did for the Galaxy S4 LTE-A, but it would be best not to be too hopeful about that.
