Samsung Galaxy S8 Active Hinted By Company's Website; Handset Not Getting An Infinity Display?
Talks have been going around for the longest time about Samsung's tougher version of the Galaxy S8 - the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active. The hype about the sturdy smartphone has been reignited anew as the tech giant has hinted the handset's existence.
The Galaxy S8 Active - bearing the model number SM-G892A - has been spotted on Samsung Knox's website alongside other devices of the company that is slated for National Information Assurance Partnership's (NIAP) certification. However further details about the rumored handset are still under wraps.
If rumors are anything to go by, it suggests that the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active could be an AT&T exclusive just like its predecessor. Moreover, the phone's Geekbench results were also spotted early on claiming that it will be no different from the current S8 in the market, Slash Gear noted.
The phone is said to be carrying Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 chipset with 4GB of RAM. The Galaxy S8 Active is also believed to be arriving with other features such as the Bixby assistant, Samsung Pay, and the DeX docking station.
A bit of a heads up though, fans should not be expecting that the Galaxy S8 Active will have the same Infinity Display like the ones found on its two current renders. Early leaked photos of the alleged handset have made rounds online and the rugged S8 render is almost no different from LG's G6, according to The Verge.
Samsung has yet to make an official statement as to when the Galaxy S8 Active will be released. However, if it were to base the company's penchant of releasing such iteration, it may well seem that the phone could be seeing the light of day sometime in June or July.
