Samsung’s first high-end waterproof smartphone – the Galaxy S4 Active – is now available in the UK (a bit later than initially expected).
Customers can buy the handset SIM-free from various retailers, including Carphone Warehouse (for £529.95), Unlocked-mobiles (£494.98), and Clove (£486.00 – this is the lowest price I’ve seen so far).
As you may already know, the Galaxy S4 Active has been available in the US since last month, when AT&T launched it, asking $199.99 for it on contract. The handset runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, and features a 5 inch Full HD display, 8MP rear camera, 2GB of RAM, 1..9GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, 16GB of expandable internal memory, and a 2,600 battery.
Another new Samsung Galaxy that’s about to make its debut in the UK very soon is the Galaxy S4 Zoom. Both Carphone Warehouse and Clove are saying the 16MP camera-smartphone hybrid will be released on July 11. While Carphone doesn’t provide pricing details, Clove is asking £442.80 for the device.
