Samsung’s Galaxy S “Active” handsets have always been exclusive to AT&T in the United States ever since the first one, the Galaxy S4 Active, was launched in the country. It was reported earlier this year that AT&T might no longer be the exclusive home of the Galaxy S8 Active. While this handset was launched on the country’s second-largest carrier several weeks ago, it’s possible that T-Mobile might launch the Galaxy S8 Active soon.
Just like its predecessors, the Galaxy S8 Active was recently launched as an AT&T exclusive. However, Samsung had said at that time that this handset would be available only from AT&T for a limited time.
This left the door open to the possibility of some other carrier eventually offering the Galaxy S8 Active to its customers. It appears that the other carrier is going to be T-Mobile, the country’s third-largest mobile carrier.
According to VentureBeat, the T-Mobile Galaxy S8 Active release is going to take place soon. The variant it launches will have the version number SM-G892T. It will be sold in Meteor Gray and Titanium Gold colors, the same that are available on AT&T right now.
The report doesn’t mention precisely when T-Mobile is going to officially launch the Galaxy S8 Active on its network but it may not be long before it does that.
