You might want to hold off a few weeks if you’re worried the Galaxy S4 is too delicate for your lifestyle.
At a Q&A conference in Dubai, President of Samsung Gulf, Young Soo Kim, claimed that a ruggedized version of its latest flagship phone was in the works and would be officially announced in the coming weeks. The statement was made in response to a question asking why Samsung hadn’t yet made waterproof devices.
This new rugged Galaxy S4 will both be dust proof and waterproof, which we imagine will add a considerable amount of bulk to the phone. We’re curious if Samsung will knock out some of the higher-end hardware specs, too. Unfortunately we don’t know much else about a release date or pricing just yet.
