The Galaxy S4 Active hasn't officially been announced by Samsung but details of its existence have been leaked over the past few weeks.

The device appears to be a rugged version of the Galaxy S4 with "dustproof covers and a rugged exterior", according to the video. The phone featured in the video was apparently supplied by "a source who got his hands on the device overseas".

The Galaxy S4 Active appears to be using the GT-I9295 model number. It has a dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus (MSM8960) processor and an 8-megapixel camera, the only major specification changes from the regular Galaxy S4.

According to the leak, the Galaxy S4 Active features all the functions found on the standard Galaxy S4 in a case that is dust and water resistant.

The video doesn't reveal much of the phone, only showing the "About" screen in the settings menu. The shape of the handset looks almost identical to the regular Galaxy S4, though the menu, home and back keys below the screen appear to be physical buttons rather than the capacitive, touch-sensitive keys of the regular model.

The video of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active can be seen below.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
