Samsung launches Snapdragon 800 variant of the Galaxy S4 Active

Galaxy S4 Active Snapdragon 800Samsung has just launched the updated version of the Galaxy S4 Active in South Korea. This new version of the water-resistant handset now features a 2.3 GHz quad core Snapdragon 800 SoC and an upgraded 13MP camera sensor. The smartphone also comes with support for local LTE-A networks in the region. Apart from these two changes, the rest of the hardware remains unchanged and it still packs the same 5 inch 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and a 2,600 mAh battery. The new Galaxy S4 Active is 4 grams lighter than the standard Galaxy S4 Active, which is a noteworthy change. The smartphone is launching through SK Telecom in South Korea.

The Galaxy S4 Active has had a very limited release as it was only available in a handful of locations outside the U.S., so we’re not too optimistic about a global release of this new variant. The AT&T Galaxy S4 Active in the U.S. went under some criticism after complaints of water damage started to rise. However, those reports were put to rest after the carrier promised to replace damaged units.
