After much speculation and anticipation, Samsung finally unveiled the Galaxy S4 a while back. The phone’s all set to hit the U.S markets soon, but looks like the rumor mills are still busy coming up with news about this smartphone. The latest we’re hearing is that the Korean manufacturer could come up with a waterproof version of its flagship smartphone to take on the Sony Xperia Z.

Sony’s flagship smartphone made quite a splash into the world of smartphones earlier this year and is doing quite well in the market. With rugged features, Sony has managed to sell over 4.5 million units of the phone in just 40 days.

The news came to light at a recent press conference of the Samsung Galaxy S4 held in Dubai. The Samsung Gulf president remarked that the company could make an announcement about a dust and water resistant Galaxy S4 in the coming weeks. We’re tuned in for sure!
