While there is much indication suggesting that Samsung will be seen taking the wraps off its Galaxy Note 8 smartphone on 23rd August; there are a lot of other leading rumors that suggest that the firm will also be introducing its Galaxy S8 Active alongside the former. The upcoming Galaxy S8 Active smartphone is expected to feature a rugged design, and will probably be AT&T exclusive. Several reports claim that the smartphone might only be available for purchase solely in the US markets; however, that seems far from happening especially given the fan base that Samsung has all over the world including its home-market, South Korea. The details regarding the device remain vague at the moment but here’s a complete compilation of the top specifications that can be expected from the upcoming Galaxy S8 Active smartphone.

Design and the price

According to a report published by TechRadar, the upcoming Galaxy S8 Active is going to come packed with a tough-look and rugged features, in order to ensure the durability of the same. The smartphone is expected to be introduced towards the end of this month, presumably on 23rd August as the firm itself announced their plans on launching the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus smartphones.

Most of the features in the upcoming Galaxy S8 Active smartphone are going to be quite similar to Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus smartphones that were introduced earlier this year. If the leading reports are believed to be true, then the upcoming smartphone will be priced at around $850, that makes it $150 cheaper than what the Galaxy Note 8 is expected to come at. As for the display specifications of the smartphone, the device will probably pack a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED display with 1,440 x 2,960 pixels resolution.

The smartphone won’t pack a curved screen but will come with an added protection of Corning’s Gorilla 5 glass, making the device shatter-resistant. The smartphone will also possibly sport an IP68 certification, thereby making the smartphone dust and water resistant.

A powerful device

As far as the other specifications of the smartphone are concerned, the device might pack a 12MP single rear sensor complemented by an 8MP front shooter as well. The smartphone is expected to be powered by a 4,000mAh battery — but the firm needs to be extra careful with its battery power, referring to the Galaxy note 7 fiasco. The smartphone will pack the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 system-on-chip, complemented by 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
