The Galaxy S8 Active is designed around a metal frame with an improved and rugged structure.
The Galaxy S8 Active variant packs the flawless blend of glass and metal design, durability, ruggedness and performance, which are all associated with the Samsung and Galaxy brand. The carrier has a short exclusive where it's only available from them, but we expect Sprint and potentially others to offer it in the near future.
Samsung has finally taken the wraps off its long-rumoured Galaxy S8 Active, announcing pre-orders will go live in the USA as of Tuesday.
The S8 Active has the same specs as the standard S8, including a 5.8-inch display, 12-megapixel rear camera, and a 8-megapixel front-facing camera.
As for its design, Samsung's new phone carries a MIL-STD-810G rating, being shatter/dust/water resistant.
As you can see, the design is a little more industrial than other Galaxy S8 smartphones.
The Galaxy S8 Active has now been spotted on an official Samsung website.
As usual, the company has managed to insert a larger battery into the new Active device - 4000mAh.
The 5.8-inches long screen has a 2K Super AMOLED display with 18.5:9 aspect ratio.
The smartphone will be available in Meteor Grey and Titanium Gold colour variants, and the biggest highlight is its military grade shielding. Furthermore, the smartphone's display has been coated in Corning Gorilla Glass 5 which enhances its scratch and crack resistance. The phone was also confirmed by Samsung website and before this week's launch, a demo video, actual photos, and the manual were leaked. To go with your Galaxy S8 Active, you get the option of purchasing a Gear S2 for $1 or a Gear S3 for $50 with a 2-year plan. Also, Bixby doesn't support voice commands yet.
