After seeing a version of the Samsung Galaxy S 4 Active with a Snapdragon 800 processor pop up in some benchmark testing, we are finally treated to some news about when the device may hit the market. Reports indicate the faster version of the ruggedized smartphone is set for an October launch on Korean carrier SK Telecom with an estimated price of 900,000 won ($840 USD). In addition to the upgraded processor, the new version will support SK Telecom’s LTE-A network, much like the Galaxy S 4 sibling already announced that supports LTE-A.
Perhaps the biggest mystery surrounding the device is what version of Android it may ship with out of the box. There is no indication of any other markets that may see this variation of the device.
