Samsung Galaxy S4 Active

The Samsung I9295 Galaxy S4 Active has been in our rumor mill for quite some time. The latest leaked shots reveal that the Active will be a tougher dust and water resistant version of the Galaxy S4 flagship.
The specs are expected to be the same and the live pictures below confirm it – the device is running on a quad-core 1.9GHz processor with Adreno 320 GPU, which most definitely means a Snapdragon 600 chipset. The screen supposedly has the same size and resolution as the original Galaxy S4 – a 5.0-inch 1080p unit, though it’s unclear if it’s a Super AMOLED one or not. Strangely enough, the reported pixel density of the phone is 480ppi, so the display might actually be smaller.
Our tipster also confirmed to us that the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active has an 8MP rear camera, which is a downgrade from the 13MP sensor of the Galaxy S4.

Despite the similar specs, the Galaxy S4 Active looks nothing like the original. It comes in a metallic shell with bolts on the back, and there are also three hardware buttons below the screen.
There is no official info on the Galaxy S4 Active yet, but as it turns out the handset has been showcased recently in Croatia, so an announcement is imminent.

Samsung Galaxy S4 mini leaks in new photos

Samsung may have managed to keep the Galaxy S4 under wraps until the premiere, but it seems the company isn’t even trying to keep the Galaxy S4 mini a secret. The device entered our rumor mill in April, a few days later we saw its face and yesterday we even learned more about its chipset.
Today, we were treated to a new batch of live images of the upcoming smartphone. You can clearly see it the Galaxy S4 mini uses a design very similar to its bigger brother, the Galaxy S4.

Judging by the homescreen, we bet the Galaxy S4 mini is running on the same Android 4.2.2 version and TouchWiz UX 5.0 as the Galaxy S4 flagship. We can see the S4 mini supports eye-tracking (the icon next to the network bars), so we might even see the awesome Air gestures, too.
So far we know the Galaxy S4 mini will be powered by Samsung’s own Exynos 5210 chipset with a dual-core 1.6GHz processor and 1GB of RAM. The rest of the specs include a 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display, an 8MP rear camera with dual-video recording, and at least 8GB internal storage expandable via a microSD card slot.
The official announcement is expected to happen by the end of this month.
