It has been a couple of months since Samsung launched the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. As we’ve seen in the past couple of years, the company comes out with an “Active” variant of the new flagship a few months later. Over the past few weeks, we have heard rumors and reports about the Galaxy S8 Active even though it hasn’t been announced as yet by the company. The Galaxy S8 Active has now been spotted listed on Samsung’s own website.
The Galaxy S8 Active bearing model number SM-G892A has been mentioned in a document that’s available on Samsung’s website. The document details all of the apps that this handset is going to ship with when it’s ultimately released.
Given that this document has emerged on Samsung’s website now, it may only be a matter of time before Samsung officially unveils the Galaxy S8 Active.
As has been the case with previous Active devices, it’s quite likely that the Galaxy S8 Active will be an AT&T exclusive in the United States as well. No other carrier in the country sells it except AT&T.
Recent leaks suggest that the Galaxy S8 Active is going to have a flat 5.8 inch display, an Exynos 8895 processor with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, a body that’s durable to the MIL-STD-810G standard as well as a slightly larger battery than the 3,500mAh cell found in the Galaxy S8+.
No word as yet on the pricing and release date.
