Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy S8 Active smartphone anytime soon thanks to numerous leaks flowing in suggesting an official launch sometime soon. Samsung has produced the Galaxy ACtive series devices as a rugged version of their flagship device and the Galaxy Active handsets have been exclusive in the U.S. to AT&T. Galaxy S8 Active is the expected to be the next in that series as a rugged version of Galaxy S8.
Today, real life photos of Samsung Galaxy S8 Active has surfaced on the web revealing the design and other details of the device including the battery capacity. Even a video was uploaded with a hands on with the S8 active which is now deleted and hence not available.Galaxy S8 Active packs with Snapdragon 835 on board along with 4GB of RAM. Looking at the images of the alleged S8 active, we can see that it comes with the same infinite display as Galaxy S8 with 18.5:9 aspect ratio with on-screen navigation buttons on the front though it lacks the curved 3D glass edges, along with the fingerprint sensor at the back panel just the way we saw in Galaxy S8. The display is protected with the polycarbonate layer on top.
One of the leaked images reveals the capacity of the battery as 4,000 mAh which is the same capacity battery in Galaxy S7 Active last year though the existing flagships come with 3,500 mAh on the Galaxy S8 Plus and 3,000 mAh on the Galaxy S8. There is no “Active” key on the phone though Bixby button is present.
We still do not have any official confirmation of the launch date of S8 Active. As with any other leak, take this with a pinch of salt. Stay tuned at Androidpure and we will keep you updated.
