Singapore– July 10, 2013 – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, a global leader in mobile technology and digital solutions, today announced the launch of the GALAXY S4 ACTIVE With LTE in Singapore. The phone is designed to enhance life experiences of the active user who wants to stay connected while exploring environments from the most rugged mountain trails to the roughest rivers.
“The GALAXY S4 ACTIVE With LTE is a new addition to the GALAXY series and is purposefully designed for active users who love the outdoors,” said Irene Ng, Vice President, Marketing, Samsung Asia Pte Ltd. “Samsung has taken the innovative features of the GALAXY S4 and added breakthrough protective design elements to create a device that thrives in an active environment and is built for a lifestyle of travel and exploration.”
Recognizing the demands of a dynamic lifestyle, the GALAXY S4 ACTIVE With LTE was engineered to keep active users connected as they explore and experience the world around them.
The GALAXY S4 ACTIVE With LTE has qualified protection from dust and water (IP67＊), so you never have to leave the device at home during a long day at the beach or a dusty hike. The fully sealed design keeps dust particles out and protects against water damage for up to 30 minutes of submergence at a depth of one meter. Equipped with a water-resistant earphone jack, the GALAXY S4 ACTIVE With LTE frees you to use earphones above water when the phone is wet or in water. Whether capturing every moment of a wild rafting trip or taking a great underwater photo in the pool, the device’s unique construction lets users capture amazing moments previously impossible using a regular smartphone.
Explore Longer with Powerful Performance
An active lifestyle requires plenty of energy, and the GALAXY S4 ACTIVE With LTE offers a long-lasting and powerful user experience.
Featuring a 1.9 GHZ Quad-Core processor and 2,600mAh battery, the GALAXY S4 ACTIVE With LTE can handle the most intensive tasks with ease and precision. Striking color and stunning resolution on the device’s beautiful 5.0’’ Full HD TFT LCD screen (443 PPI) makes playing the newest games or watching hours of video easy on the eyes. And with ‘Glove Touch’, the touchscreen can be fully operated while wearing gloves so you can use the touchscreen functions in the same way you have always done even with your golf or bike gloves.
With an 8-megapixel rear camera, users can easily share their vivid experiences while on the go. Unique to the GALAXY S4 ACTIVE With LTE camera, ‘Aqua Mode’ can be used to increase visual quality and clarity for enhanced underwater images and video. The volume key located on the side of the device can be used as a camera key, allowing users to easily and quickly open the camera application to capture photo and video the moment it happens. Additionally, the camera transforms into a powerful LED flash light to assist in low-light and nighttime activities with a simple long press of the volume key.
Richer & Fuller Life Experience

‘Trip Advisor’ offers travel assistance, local information, and recommendations to provide a more seamless experience in an unfamiliar environment. ‘S Translator¹’ makes international travel easy by providing instant text or voice translation for emails and text messages.
The camera interface is designed to make capturing and sharing meaningful moments intuitive and more engaging with multiple shooting modes including ‘Drama Shot’, which allows users to see all the action in one continuous time-lapse, and ‘Sound & Shot’, which uniquely stores sound and voice together with the image to capture the moment in an immersive visual/audio format. With ‘Story Album’, photos taken with the GALAXY S4 ACTIVE With LTE are collected and sorted according to a user’s timeline, geo-tagging information or a specific event to instantly create an organized photo album.
