Samsung’s Galaxy S8 Active has appeared in a recent leak with few blurred images. The design, therefore, couldn’t be claimed much neatly and the best presentation this leak has is a full mention of its specifications. And then quite dramatically, after a few hours of this leak, close ups and clearer image of the alleged Galaxy S8 Active was too spotted online. That showed no significant changes in design as was known already.
The design remains the same: No Home button, meaning that a rear fingerprint sensor is included. A 5.8-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display with 18.5: aspect ratio and Gorilla Glass is for display and the smartphone is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 SoC processor paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage. For optics, the Galaxy S8 Active could feature a 12-megapixel rear camera with dual-pixel phase-detection autofocus, OIS, f/1.7 aperture, and 4K video recording. Up front, an 8-megapixel camera with autofocus, f/1.7 aperture, and QHD video recording.
S8 Active will be an Android 7.0 Nougat based phone with 4,000mAh battery whose connectivity options will be Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi, NFC, GPS, and GLONASS. IP68 certification for dust and water resistance, considering it will be a rugged smartphone, is expected as well. The smartphone could be launched in two colors of Meteor Gray and Titanium Gold.
The smartphone is approved by the FCC in the US and the Wi-Fi Alliance and its launch is expected anytime soon. Samsung’s almost all Galaxy flagship versions are given a rugged treatment for a special edition of the phone, however, if history keeps repeating itself. S8 Active will be a carrier exclusive phone. It is slightly thicker with a protective layer on the sides making it a ‘rugged’ device.
