The Galaxy S4 Active hasn't officially been announced by Samsung but details of its existence have been leaked over the past few weeks.

The device appears to be a rugged version of the Galaxy S4 with "dustproof covers and a rugged exterior", according to the video. The phone featured in the video was apparently supplied by "a source who got his hands on the device overseas".

The Galaxy S4 Active appears to be using the GT-I9295 model number. It has a dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus (MSM8960) processor and an 8-megapixel camera, the only major specification changes from the regular Galaxy S4.

According to the leak, the Galaxy S4 Active features all the functions found on the standard Galaxy S4 in a case that is dust and water resistant.

The video doesn't reveal much of the phone, only showing the "About" screen in the settings menu. The shape of the handset looks almost identical to the regular Galaxy S4, though the menu, home and back keys below the screen appear to be physical buttons rather than the capacitive, touch-sensitive keys of the regular model.

The video of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active can be seen below.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
