We exclusively reported three months ago that Samsung had the Galaxy S8 Active in the pipeline. Like previous “Active” variants before it, the Galaxy S8 Active codenamed “Cruiser” will be exclusive to AT&T in the United States.
We’ve only ever seen leaked renders of the Galaxy S8 Active and while they have given us a good idea of what to expect from the device, nothing beats images of the actual device itself. Several live pictures of the Galaxy S8 Active have now been leaked online.
The sturdy device has the same internals as the regular Galaxy S8 packed inside a durable body built to the MIL-STD-810G standard. It has the same Exynos 8895 processor, however, it swaps the dual-edge curved display for a 5.8-inch flat AMOLED display.
It may not be long before Samsung officially announces the Galaxy S8 Active. Over the past couple of weeks, we’ve seen it surface on benchmarking websites multiple times. The handset has also received its FCC approval and various certifications.
The Galaxy S8 Active will be exclusive to AT&T so the pricing and availability details will be confirmed by the carrier itself. No word as yet on how much the carrier is going to charge for this device.
