Samsung Galaxy S8 Active's Leaked Photos Now Making Rounds; No Underwater Mode
Samsung's current flagship handset - the Galaxy S8 - has been an impressive piece of premium device as of late. That being said, the company will carry on with the tradition as recent leaks suggest that the phone's buffed up brother - the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active - is coming.
The latest spy shots of the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active are coming in hot as the images fit perfectly in the bag with the ones that were previously leaked. Unlike the much sleeker S8 and S8+, the upcoming rugged render of the phone will veer away from such aesthetics and streamlined features.
According to GSM Arena, the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active will not be having a curved edge Infinity Display. Instead, it will be a flat one not making the sturdy handset closely similar to LG's G6. Moreover, it is said that it will be 1.5x thicker as compared to the regular S8. Its signature Active button has been replaced by the Bixby button, though it has been reported that the feature is not yet operational. Meanwhile, other notable components such as the 3.5 mm headphone jack, speaker grille, and the USB Type-C are all found at the bottom.
Under its hood, the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active will be carrying 4GB of RAM alongside a Snapdragon 835 SoC from Qualcomm. The phone will also be preloaded with an Android 7.0 (Nougat) operating system and is said to have a decent 64GB of storage space. The downside though that it has been discovered that the device has ditched the underwater mode that might irk some fans, Android Police noted.
The company, on the other hand, has yet to announce Samsung Galaxy S8 Active's price tag including its release date. In the meantime, check out a video about this upcoming addition to the Galaxy S lineup:
