The Samsung Galaxy S8 Active aka SM-G892A got WiFi certified last month. It has now popped up on Geekbench, hinting towards a launch in the coming few weeks.
Gizchina News of the week
As the name suggests, the Galaxy S8 Active is the S8’s brother with extreme durability, since rumors say that it will be MIL-STD-810G standard compliant. From the spec sheet on Geekbench, it is clear that the Galaxy S8 Active will be powered by the octa core Snapdragon 835 clocked at 2.3GHz. The phone is supposed to have a 5.4 inch display with a resolution of 2008 x 1080. It will house 4GB of RAM and 64GB of ROM. The camera on the rear is a 12MP sensor with dual tone LED flash and the front has an 8MP shooter.
There is no word whether this phone will have a Bixby button or not. As for the launch, we expect it to happen in the coming weeks. Rumors claim that the phone will be able to survive drops, water and even fire damage, thanks to the MIL-STD-810G compliance.
We don’t know yet whether it’ll follow the same design as the S8, but we are speculating that it might be different as making a phone durable does need a lot of structural changes. Stay tuned for more!
