Samsung Galaxy S4 Active for AT&T Press Render Leaked


Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S4 Active that should be revealed at their London event on June 20, is now confirmed for AT&T thanks to a leaked press render. This variant of the GS4 Active looks incredibly different from past looks we have seen of the device, as this one sports a mono grey tone around the entirety of its body, with no other color accents except for a darker shade of matte grey along the bottom and top. The Active we have seen in photos and video was red and black with a more glossy tone.

While some folks may not need a ruggedized version of this year’s most popular phone, it definitely isn’t the ugliest phone we have ever seen.

According to @evleaks, this variant of the device will feature an 8MP back-facing camera, Snapdragon 600 chipset, a Super AMOLED Full HD display, as well as full AT&T 4G LTE connectivity.

Thoughts on the look?

    Galaxy S4 Active is now officially confirmed. And it will be released by the end of this month. For now Sony only launched water resistant phones but now Active will be the first water proof phone by Samsung.


  • I’d take this phone if I had the dough.

  • Taylor Levesque

    I see value in this considering your normal rugged phones are low-end pieces of crap

  • Armus

    I still want to see a 32gb S4 on vzw

  • CaptainHowdy13

    I’m “intrigued”. The camera is still good, even if its < 13MP. For what i would use it for, it would be golden.

  • Spencer

    Ew ew ew ew ew. No, that phone really does look terrible. Plain ugly.

    • David

      You sound like a chick.

      • He’s probably gay

        • Amir

          Wow I didn’t realize someone’s sexuality could decided by their comment on a phone’s appearance -_-

          • Lol just pointing out how it would sounded if it was spoken out loud….

  • chris125

    actually like the 3 buttons on this compared to just the one large home button and 2 capacative keys.

  • CisternaChyli

    The processor and chipset are the same (Snapdragon 600 quad core, with Adreno 320)…

    • Hans Dirk Kwazneski

      same. exact. Camera is different and the rest isn’t 100% confirmed….

  • CisternaChyli

    The specs look equivalent to the regular Galaxy S4 being sold here, why would development be any different?

  • Rocketjrb

    The back…. Yes!!!
    The front…. No!!!

    • Sean Royce

      The whole phones looks awesome IMO.


    Now why couldn’t the GS4 look like this?

    • David

      Because the iPhone doesn’t look like that.

  • Butters619

    If this had on screen keys instead of physical, I would take it over the SGS4 any day.

    • Joe

      That’s a pretty stupid reason to not get a phone.

      • Diablo81588

        It’s a perfectly good reason. Just because you don’t care doesn’t mean others won’t.

  • Tony Byatt

    That thing looks tough…

  • Eric

    AT&T sure is getting a lot of decent devices these days…can’t say the same about VZW.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      At&t pushes to get ALL high end devices. And the More Exclusive the better. That’s they only way they’ll be able to LURE folks away from Verizon because they do the complete opposite

      • Tim242

        Verizon customers are perfectly happy with the Galaxies, Droids, and iPhones…regardless of what a few on this blog claims. Verizon is gaining record subs every quarter.

        • XphoneTroll

          You are right about that!

          This is true. People can bitch all they want about Verizon on message boards, but the cold hard Bluth is that they’re doing something right in order to keep adding record amounts of customers and win customer satisfaction surveys (JD). I guess coverage does matter.

          • Tim242

            I’m not happy with all of the decisions that Verizon makes. The fact that I had to do what I had to do to get Google Wallet working on my Verizon S4 is a sad fact. However, I do what I have to. They provide the best service, and have plenty of phones for the masses.

        • Hack Pyre

          im not happy with just that. give me more phones and an unlocked bootloader then ill be happy.

    • dawn patterson

      I’ve created $64,000 thus far this year operating on-line and i am a full time student. Im victimisation a web business chance I detected concerning and i have created such nice cash. It’s very user friendly and i am with great care happy that I noted concerning it. Heres what I do, http://www.pro67.com

  • jaybar

    back looks nice, but how are physical keys more dust/water resistant than capacitive?

    • Detonation

      Maybe not more resistant, but they might be considered more rugged because they work without needing bare skin, like while wearing gloves.

      • Daistaar

        I though one of the GS4’s better features was that it could detect your touches even with gloves on?

    • feztheforeigner

      Or on screen keys

    • Open1Your1Eyes0

      Capacitive/on-screen keys don’t work under water.

    • michael arazan

      Can’t wait to see all the physical test done to this phone, especially if they do a test on the active and sg4 at same time

  • DroidJ

    No, I’m going to go ahead and say it…that’s an ugly phone. Especially with those physical buttons.

  • Kyle Cordiano

    Looks nice.

  • Michael Contreras

    Dem physical keys…

  • Tim, I think the only thing this post is missing is the crickets. haha I don’t see very many people like us being interested in this. This is especially true because I’m sure most of us would agree that the Active will probably not get updates nearly as frequently as the Galaxy S4 would.

    • The device looks good, but doesn’t exactly interest me or anyone I know. It’s cool, but will probably be met with dismal sales.

      • I’d definitely agree on the dismal sales. That phone would cater to a very niche market…mainly people who work outdoors and people who want a phone they can go running with.

        • Eric

          I can run just fine with my current device.

          • But if you drop a naked S4 while running, it’s toast.

          • Eric

            I don’t use my device naked while running…though I might be given the circumstance 😉

          • Daniel Pogue

            Literally dropped my N4 running today. I always have it naked too. Not a damn thing happened, I guess i’m pretty lucky.

          • Why are you running with a naked phone? I always have mine in a slim case, but i have dropped and thrown my s3 MANY times (several while running) and nothing has ever happened. Ever

  • valapsp

    Those physical buttons ….

  • valapsp

    I can’t say whether it’s beautiful or ugly! But at least I can say they dumped that cheap plastic.

    • Tim242

      Does the plastic battery cover bother you that much? The front of the device is premium Gorilla Glass 3. The sides are premium polycarbonate that fooled many reviewers, including this very site, to think it was metal.

      • DainLaguna

        Huh? Every review ive read says its metal look plastic.

        • Tim242

          The sides are premium poly carbonate. It looks and feels like metal. There was some confusion in the early reviews/first impressions. Some called it metal. Kellen called it metal as well.
