s4-active-leakSamsung is supposedly preparing a rugged version of the Galaxy S4, that will carry the name ‘Active’ . Internally known as ‘Project J’, this version of the Galaxy S4 should keep the same look and fell as the S4 while also getting waterproof and dust proof additions.

We can expect the launch of the rugged device to be in the near future, but meanwhile we have spotted the first leaked images of it thanks to a tipper on GSMArena. You will see that the overall design isn’t changed, but the build is totally different with a few bolts and a tougher metallic case on the back of the device, meant to keep the device really tight. Apparently the capacitive buttons are not meant for water exposure, so Samsung decided to install physical buttons at the bottom of the device.

The GT-I9295, according to the leaked image, will run on a quad-core ARMv7 CPU by Qualcomm and an Adreno 320 GPU. This basically matches the performance of the Snapdragon 600 inside the regular S4. The rest of the specs are the same for now, Android 4.2.2, 480 ppi at 1080×1920 resolution screen and so on. One thing that the tipper on GSMArena pointed out is the fact that the camera will be an 8MP one, weaker than the 13MP one used on the regular S4, but we’ll have to wait and see that when the device is released.
