Galaxy S4 Active gets FCC certified, more S4 Zoom rumors

The Galaxy S4 mini was just made official and according to rumors there will be two more S4 family members joining the party soon the Galaxy S4 Active and the Galaxy S4 Zoom.

The Galaxy S4 Active will be an IP57-certified version of the regular S4 unlike the mini, it will pack almost the all of the high-end specs like a 5" Super AMOLED display with FullHD resolution, quad-core Snapdragon 600 chipset, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and LTE connectivity.

The main camera has been stepped down to 8MP, but the rest should be the same, a 2,600mAh battery, 16GB of built-in storage, microSD card slot, dual-band Wi-Fi and so on.

The AT&T version of the phone just passed FCC certification as the I537. While the FCC docs don't have a proper picture, these leaked images already revealed what the Active looks like.

The rumors continue with the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom. It's allegedly an S4 mini variant with the same 4.3" qHD Super AMOLED display, Android Jelly Bean, 8GB of storage and microSD card, 1,900mAh battery, but with a different processor clocked at 1.6GHz (presumably an Exynos 5 model). It's odd that the rumor states there won't be LTE connectivity on the S4 Zoom, as both the Galaxy Camera and Galaxy S4 mini have LTE.

Anyway, the camera is the headline feature of the Galaxy S4 Zoom a 16MP shooter with 10x optical zoom. This is also the hardest to believe bit of the rumor, but we've heard the same thing in the past and we'll see what happens on June 20 when Samsung will announce new Galaxy and Ativ devices.
