After releasing a flagship phone, it has been a tradition for Samsung to follow it up with a rugged version; a phone better equipped at facing whatever life has to throw at it. It carries the “Active” moniker and usually has a larger battery to boot. It seems like the Galaxy S8 Active will be launched very soon as it was spotted recently on Geekbench, exposing essential hardware information.
The Galaxy S8 Active will be taking on the code name SM-G892A and will have an 8-core Snapdragon 835 chipset, along with 4 gigs of RAM. Running Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, it got a score very similar to the S8 and S8+. It’s also expected to pack in a larger battery, like its predecessors. Experience tells us it will not have the famed Galaxy S8 “Infinity Display” curved screen and will most probably have side bezels to better support the active lifestyle. Like the previous “Active” Galaxy phones, it will most probably be made exclusive to American Mobile Network AT&T.
