AT&T officially announced that it will be launching the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active exclusively in the US. The carrier dunked a unit in water to celebrate, relying on the IP67-certified hardware to keep going.
Pre-orders will be starting tomorrow, Friday, with the first Galaxy S4 Active units expected to hit AT&T stores (both brick and mortar and online) about a week later on June 21. The price is set at $200 with a 2-year contract.
The Galaxy S4 Active for AT&T will be available in two color versions: Urban Gray and Dive Blue. The Orange Flare color option – which is the one we used for our preview – is not available.d

There's more – IR blaster to control your TV, Air Gestures, SAFE certification for security-conscious business types and all sorts of other features. Here are the highlights, presented in 60 seconds:
