    [Rumor] Partially Ruggedized Version of the Galaxy S4 Confirmed by Samsung Exec


    Here's a strange one to be calling a rumor, since it apparently comes directly from a Samsung exec. Supposedly, Young Soo Kim, Samsung Gulf Electronics president recently made a statement at a Dubai conference confirming that there will be a partially ruggedized version of the Galaxy S4 coming. Kim specifically indicated a water-proof and dust-proof version of the device would be coming eventually. Not other details were shared, but we will keep an eye out to find out if this was simply a misunderstanding or if it turns out to be accurate.

    Sounds promising, but in doing so, the ruggedizing may cause there device to become bulky and awkward to put in your pocket. Might be a feature that can be optional with a case...

    Supposedly it will only become water and dust proof, not necessarily shock resistant. It's possible they plan to use something like Liquipel to achieve this result which would mean the physical design doesn't change at all. Of course, I am just speculating.

    I've held my Razr under running water, I don't see why they wouldn't be able to incorporate some kind of technology like moto did.

    I would love a more rugged version of my S3. That would be awesome.
