Samsung Galaxy S4 Active with Snapdragon 800 processor to be launched next month?
According to Naver (in Korean), the upgraded Galaxy S4 Active could be launched in South Korea in October via SK Telecom.
The S4 Active that’s currently available around the world – pictured below – has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor. It costs around €500 in Europe, and around $600 (unlocked) in the US.
The Snapdragon 800 chipset is obviously faster than the 600, and also benefits from a more powerful GPU (Adreno 330 vs. Adreno 320).
The Galaxy S4 Active is Samsung’s first high-end waterproof (IP67 certified) smartphone. Its features include a 5 inch Full HD display, LTE, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory (expandable via MicroSD), 8MP rear camera with LED flash, 2MP front-facing camera, and a 2,600 mAh battery.
There is no word if the S4 Active with Snapdragon 800 CPU will be available globally. We’ll bring more on this when new details arrive.
