Rugged, Zooming, Mini and Blue Galaxy S4 Models Set to Flood Planet Samsung

By Gary Cutlack on at

Samsung's never been shy about releasing new kinds of mobile phone, but it's taking things to the next level with its extending of the Galaxy S4 range. Four new S4 tweaks are now known to be on the way, as the Galaxy range expands faster than the universe.

First up we have more on the previously spotted Galaxy S4 Zoom. This model, which supposedly features a 10x optical zoom, has now popped up in a product listing on the Bluetooth SIG site, which is a BT compatibility database where lots of phones often break cover first. So we're happy that's a real thing we'll see in shops soon enough, as is the "rugged" Galaxy S4 Active, which is also up on the Bluetooth site under the expected model number GT-I9295.

Meanwhile, an "Arctic Blue" version of the Galaxy S4 has been spotted in listings for Japanese network NTT, alongside newly leaked images of the Galaxy S4 Mini (pictured above), with the latter said to contain a 4.3" AMOLED display running at the qHD resolution of 960 x 540.
