T-Mobile Galaxy S8 Active launch seems like a possibility


Last updated: September 28th, 2017 at 23:22 UTC+02:00

According to a new report, the T-Mobile Galaxy S8 Active launch seems like a possibility now. Ever since the first “Active” handset was launched by Samsung back in 2013, all of the rugged Galaxy S handsets that have followed have been exclusive to AT&T in the US.

It started with the Galaxy S4 but it looks like AT&T’s exclusivity will end with the Galaxy S8. It was reported previously that AT&T might lose its exclusivity over the latest Active handset from Samsung. While the Galaxy S8 Active was released on AT&T first earlier this year, it may soon be released by T-Mobile.

VentureBeat has seen marketing material which suggests that the T-Mobile Galaxy S8 Active launch isn’t far off. The handset will have model number SM-G892T. That’s not surprising as the AT&T version has model number SM-G892A.

The Galaxy S8 Active will reportedly be available in the same Meteor Gray and Titanium Gold colors as it is on AT&T. It merits mentioning here that this handset hasn’t been spotted anywhere at the usual suspects so far.

No FCC filings or Bluetooth/Wi-Fi certifications for this variant have been spotted. This could mean that it might take a few months before this handset is released by T-Mobile. We did spot an unlocked model of the handset recently.

Everything else will likely remain the same so don’t keep your fingers crossed for any major changes. We’ll update you once there’s more information about the T-Mobile Galaxy S8 Active launch.
