Samsung must have noticed the success that the Xperia Z in terms of its being water-proof and it is really something that the Korean company has not delved in yet. There are talks that the company is keen on developing an S 4 rugged variant that will possibly be dust, shock and/or water resistant.
There is indeed a market for devices that could withstand intense conditions and those that require better specs to go with the "invincibility" of the device and the rugged Galaxy S 4 just might be it.
Furthermore, according to rumors, Samsung might actually unveil one in the coming weeks. Apparently, a high-ranking Samsung official has mentioned the possibility in a press conference in the Gulf.
