Last summer Samsung Electronics introduced a ruggedized variant of the flagship smartphone Galaxy S4, in the form of Galaxy S4 Active. While the original model comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 CPU, the newly announced LTE-Advanced variant comes as an exclusive for SK Telecom in South Korea, dubbed Galaxy S4 Active LTE (SHV-E470S) that packs under the waterproof hood, a rather more powerful processor, the Snapdragon 800 clocked at 2.3GHz, And this is not the only improvement added to the Galaxy S4 Active LTE, a 13MP camera has also been added, replacing the 8MP camera, plus a Flashlight feature, useful to those adventurous enough.

The rest of the specs remain the same: a 5-inch Full HD display, 2GB of RAM, 32GB built-in storage, 2,600 mAh battery and some software features, including Aqua Mode for underwater photography.

The price tag of the new Galaxy S4 Active LTE is 890 000 won / $845 USD and it is available in two colors: Black or White.
