Report: Samsung working on 'rugged' Galaxy S4 The WSJ has reported that Samsung is working on building a "rugged" version of its Galaxy S4 smartphone.
Supposedly the phone will be called the S4 Active and will be both waterproof and dust-proof.

Besides the added durability, the phone will be the same in appearance and specs as the flagship S4.

According to the report, Samsung is targeting a July release although it is unclear where the phone will be first released, and which carriers will offer it.

Additionally, the report also claims the company is building another 8-inch tablet that will likely not be part of the Note series.

They should all be 'rugged'.
When you're shelling out the sort of cash these things go for the least you ought to be able to expect is decent durability.

you get the rugged version... but it will contain even more bloatware to offset the cost.
