Rugged Samsung Galaxy S4 Active leaks on video: Snapdragon S4 Plus, 8 MP camera

Yesterday we had the tough Galaxy S4 Active iteration appear in leaked photos from the confines of Croatia, and today the rugged version of the venerable S4 was briefly examined on video, at least the front side.

Dual-core Snapdragon S4 Plus processor gets confirmed, as well as an 8 MP camera and bolted elements-resistant chassis. Judging from the specs, Samsung is aiming to still keep a distance from the flagship Galaxy S4, rather than create a mirror rugged version of it.

The big unknown seems to be the screen type - if Samsung went with the same wide-gamut Full HD Super AMOLED panel, the rugged handset is unlikely to come affordable, despite the lower-grade specs than the original S4, considering the eventual IP certifications it will adhere to.
