Samsung Galaxy S4 Active coming to SA

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Active is expected to become available through Vodacom, a spokesperson for the network has told MyBroadband.

Pricing and launch dates will only be available closer to the launch, Vodacom said.

Samsung announced the Active in a press statement earlier this month (June 2013), promising a device with the same dust and water resistance rating (IP67) as the Sony Xperia Z.

Other than the environmental resistance and an 8 megapixel camera, the Galaxy S4 Active appears to sport the same specifications as the LTE version of the original Galaxy S4.

A quad-core processor clocked at 1.9GHz, 5-inch full HD display, 2GB RAM, and a 2,600mAh battery. The Active is only set to come in 16GB, while the Galaxy S4 has 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB models.

Cell C, MTN, and Telkom Mobile were asked about their plans for the Samsung Galaxy S4, but did not respond by the time of publication.
