About two months ago, Samsung reported that the company was working on the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active with the codename Cruiser. Similarly, to the S7 Active, the phone will be an AT&T exclusive because of the model number ending in “A” (SM-G892A), which has recently confirmed by Geekbench benchmark scores.
To keep the device in the competition, Samsung will launch it with the price tag of $700, which is in the same ballpark as the standard S8.
According to Geekbench, the Galaxy S8 Active is expected to come with 5.4 inches, with a unique 2,008 x 1,080 resolution and the aspect ratio of 16:9.5. But you should note that Benchmark scores don’t always report accurate specs. The Infinity Display on S8 Active will have some changes, as it’ll be flat with rounded corners like that on LG G6.
The first leaked image of the Galaxy S8 Active is of the Wireless Power Consortium as it shows the front of the device. Although the curved display will no longer appear, the rounded corners are here to retain. While the bezels are slightly wider, the front is still mainly screen.
The S8 Active also has big bumpers around the sides to prevent shock when being dropped. But hopefully the bumper won’t make it look too bulky, instead look more like a phone case.
Performance: Along with the same Snapdragon 835 SoC of the Galaxy S8 for the US market, the S8 Active is rumored to be equipped with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of inbuilt storage for the same performance level.
Camera: The Galaxy S8 Active is expected to be the same as the S8’s cameras with a 12 MP rear camera, and an 8 MP front-facing camera.
Battery: Active Galaxy variants always comes with a large battery capacity, so it’snot surprise as the Galaxy S8 Active will be powered by a bigger battery than the S8, and even the S8+.
Software: According to the Geekbench scores, the S8 Active will be shipped with Android 7.0 Nougat OS.
