According to previous reports, the Galaxy S4 is also known as Project J internally, and the Project J family also contains a Project J Active device, supposedly the Galaxy S4 Active the WSJ mentions. At the time we first heard about it, Project J Active was believed to be a smartwatch.
The rugged Galaxy S4′s name is not final though, as the product is only “tentatively called the Galaxy S4 Active.” According to a “person familiar with the matter,” Samsung wants the new phone to “maintain the look and feel of the S4,” while getting waterproof and dust proof powers.
The publication did not reveal any other details about this Galaxy S4 Active, but did say that it could hit stores at some point in July.
Galaxy S4 Mini
The Galaxy S4 Mini has not been mentioned by name, as the WSJ refers to it as “a compact version” of the Galaxy S4 that will sport a 4.3-inch in July, when it’s also apparently set to launch.

While the company doesn’t mention the Galaxy Tab 3 product name, it seems logical that this unreleased device would be part of Samsung’s new Galaxy Tab generation. In addition to the 8-inch model, we could also see other Galaxy Tab 3 sizes, although the WSJ doesn’t talk about those either.
Instead, it says that the new 8-inch model would be “adding to the seven-inch and 10.1-inch versions on the market.” Currently, Samsung sells Galaxy Tab 2 models that match that description.
With all that in mind, it looks like Samsung still plans to release a wide variety of products in the coming months, basically flooding stores with new models after new models of smartphones and tablets. This strategy has paid off so far, bringing lots of cash to Samsung’s coffers, and helping it get a more than healthy lead on competitors in the Android ecosystem.
