Samsung Galaxy S4 Waterproof Version to Hit Stores in July

The rumored waterproof version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 will be released in July.

Reports of this water-resistant model of the Samsung flagship began surfacing last week. Now it appears that Samsung has some kind of an idea of when it will it launch, according to The Wall Street Journal.

The tentative name for the device is the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active. The report also states that Samsung will be launching the Galaxy S4 Mini around the same time. The company hopes to appease those customers who are unsatisfied with the larger devices currently being offered by most companies.

Samsung will also be introducing its Dual-SIM Galaxy Core I8262 in the very near future.

Specifications for this smartphone leaked around two months ago and now it appears that the company is finally ready to launch the device, according to YouMobile. The Galaxy Core is much different from the Mega series the company is prepared to release in May.

The device is rumored to feature a dual-core processor at 1.2GHz. An older video from Pastimers shows more of the leaked specifications for the Galaxy Core. The video points to the device having a 4.3-inch display, and having a blue outer shell.

A Russian site known as claims to have information on the smartphone's release date in their country. If their date is correct, the device should begin launching in the rest of the world shortly after.

The Dual-SIM feature is an interesting concept and is something Samsung also tried out when it launched the Galaxy Grand last year. The capability allows the owner of the smartphone to use two separate phone numbers at the same time while operating the phone.

"For the dual SIM version, its innovative dual SIM feature provides total communication flexibility, allowing users to manage two phone numbers from a single phone," said Samsung regarding the Grand. "It is possible to receive calls on one SIM number while taking a call from the other ensuring efficient management of personal and work commitments without ever missing a call."
