Samsung Galaxy S4 Active chip updated – Specs Review


Earlier this year, Samsung had launched the Galaxy S4 Active, which is a water-resistant and thick skinned version of its flagship Galaxy S4.

However, to provide a rugged exterior the company was forced to cut off a little on its specs. Now, the tech giant is determined to release an improved version of the Galaxy S4 Active with better components to bring its power at level with its flagship brother.

It has been reported that the originally used Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor has now been replaced with a much more powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC, while the internal storage has also been increased from 16GB to 32GB.

Even the previously used 8 megapixels camera has been replaced by a 13 megapixels camera and support for South Korea’s Advanced LTE network has also been introduced.

The original S4 Active was already a hot device in the market because of its sleek blue design and a waterproof build and now with these improved specifications it has become even more appealing and a definite choice for a smartphone user who spends most of his time in outdoor activities.

There had been certain issues that the S4 Active wasn’t as waterproof as the company claims so it’s also possible that the company will also update the internal components to make them more waterproof.

Other than this, the S4 Active has a 2.3 GHz quad-core processor which is complimented by an Adreno 330 GPU. It also sports a 5 inch Full HD display and a 2600 mAh battery.
