samsung-galaxy-s4-activeI don’t usually do this, but I’d like to organize a little contest today. Let’s see who can name the most Galaxy S4 variants in under a minute. Ready, set, go.

I have… deep breath… the original Snapdragon 600 S4, Exynos S4, S4 Active, S4 Zoom, S4 Mini, S4 LTE-A and Google Play Edition. Oh, and the S4 Active with Snapdragon 800. Never heard of that last one? Don’t sweat it, it’s not yet official.

But it should become pretty soon, since it has been spotted in GFXBench’s database, carrying the SHV-E470S model number. That means it’s headed to Korea’s SK Telecom and probably no other carrier in the world (à la GS4 LTE-A).

It’s obviously way too early to try to sketch out a spec sheet for this SHV-E470S thing, but if I were a betting man, I’d put a lot of money on it being identical to the original Galaxy S4 Active, save for the processor and the addition of LTE-Advanced speeds.

That means that, aside from a beefed-up 2.3 GHz quad-core chip, the phone should pack 2 GB of RAM, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, a 2,600 mAh battery, 8 MP rear camera, 5-inch Full HD display, plus resistance to water and dust. Not bad, but does the world really need yet another Galaxy S4 flavor?

Let me rephrase that, does anyone want a new Galaxy S4 with just a couple of minor upgrades?
