The Galaxy S8 Active will be the extremely durable edition of the delicate Galaxy S8/S8+.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 has been a super duper hit all over the world. In fact, Samsung is finding it hard to cope with the excessive demand of its highly desirable phone. Despite that, Samsung is readying the rugged version of the S8 for people who wish to take that incredible hardware in their adventure trips.
According to a post by Wireless Power consortium, the Galaxy S8 Active is retaining the bezel-less display without the curves. In fact, the phone is more akin to the LG G6 than any version of S8. It features a robust body with IP68 certification, making it suitable for use in harsh conditions.
The phone also retains the iris scanner and the front camera from the original S8/S8+. The corners of the phone seem to be reinforced to protect the delicate parts of the S8 Active.
Unfortunately, the rear of the phone hasn’t been revealed in the photo which could house the fingerprint scanner. However, it seems that the S8 Active will have a 5.8-inch screen with a resolution of 2,960 x 1,440 pixels. There could be a Snapdragon 835 chipset under the hood along with 4GB of RAM. The battery could be larger than the standard S8, like last year S7 Active.
