We’ve long been reading about the Galaxy S8 Active (SM-G892A), a possibly rugged version of the Galaxy S8 for AT&T’s network. The phone was certified by the FCC two days ago, and its rear design was revealed in the documents. It also appeared in Wi-Fi certification documents. Now, the phone has been confirmed as it has appeared in the changelog of an app from Samsung.
The Galaxy S8 Active (codenamed Cruiser) has appeared in the recent changelog of Samsung Video Library in the Play Store. Two other new devices – Galaxy J7 Reloaded (SM-J710F) and Galaxy Tab A2 S – were also mentioned. This confirms that the Galaxy S8 Active will be released on AT&T’s network in the US. The phone was spotted earlier in Geekbench’s database running Android 7.0.
The Galaxy S8 Active is believed to feature a 5.8-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED display, Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB RAM, 64GB internal storage, a 12-megapixel primary camera with dual-pixel PDAF and 4K video recording, and an 8-megapixel secondary camera with autofocus. The device will also be IP68 and MIL-STD-810G compliant for dust, shock, and water resistance.
We don’t have any information about the design, release date, or specifications of the Galaxy J7 Reloaded and the Galaxy Tab A2 S. However, we’ll report back as and when we receive more information about these two devices.
Thanks for the tip, Hashim!
