Put simply, there are far too many Samsung “flagships” around. And yes, choice is (almost) always a good thing, but in this particular case Sammy is dazing and confusing its fans and customers more than anything.

The original Galaxy S4 is a mere six months old and there’s already an “Active” version out and about, plus an S4 Zoom, an S800-powered S4 (aka the S4 LTE-A), not to mention the Galaxy Note 3, which in turn might come in several slightly tweaked flavors and variations.

And now you can add one more name to the list – a Snapdragon 800 version of the Galaxy S4 Active. Carrying the model number SHV-E470S, this thing has been recently seen making its first benchmarking rounds and is now tipped to land as soon as next month.

Fortunately, Korea is the only market set to get this new Samsung spearhead. Or is it? Well, many “insiders” seem to think so, but I think we all remember the S4 LTE-A was initially launched as a Korea-exclusive and now all signs point to it coming to Europe too. Oh, boy, I think I’m about to get a splitting headache.
