Few days ago, there were rumors online that the water-proof Samsung's Galaxy S4 is indeed in the making, and it might hit the shelves starting July. At least that's what The Wall Street Journal is reporting.
There was no rugged version of the Samsung Galaxy S3, but there was an S3 Mini. Sadly, despite the name, the S3 Mini wasn't a smaller version of the powerful phone, but a disappointing mid-range phone slapped with the S brand.
It's not yet known just how rugged the phone, which is apparently tentatively dubbed the Galaxy S4 Active, is just yet. But we'd be surprised if it didn't at least match the similarly hard-wearing, four million-selling Sony Xperia Z, which can be submerged under water for 30 minutes without affecting it.
The WSJ also reports that the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini will be along around the same time, offering a slimmer alternative to the shrinking demographic of consumers who aren't sold on huge screen-toting handsets.
