Another tougher S4 is already in the works.
The Galaxy S4 is one of the most hotly anticipated phones of the spring. Announced on March 14, Samsung has certainly given us quite enough time to drool over the phone prior to its release. However, with the phone finally ready to hit store shelves, it is possible there could be another version of the Galaxy S4 just around the corner?
CNet cites Samsung itself as saying it is planning a waterproof and dust-proof version of the S4. Not only that, but it will apparently arrive in a matter of weeks. It's not clear if this will be marketed or branded as a completely separate phone, or even if it will be available across all markets. Samsung already has different versions of the phone for different territories. The UK, for example, will get a quad-core Galaxy S4 while the North American market will get the octa-core version talked about at the New York City launch in March.
The current model of Galaxy S4, which is launching Friday, April 26, packs a 5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED PenTile display, either an octa-core Exynos 5 or quad-crore Snapdragon CPU (depending on the region in which you're buying the device), 2GB of RAM, 13-megapixel camera, a 2-megapixel camera up front, 16GB or 32GB of storage, and a 2,600mAh battery.
