Samsung Galaxy S8 Active Specs Confirmed: Aug. 11 Release Date Coming

The extra-rugged, flat-screened, non-Infinity take on the gorgeous yet fragile S8 is today properly unveiled by AT&T at last, and... why should we care about it again?

Samsung has traditionally followed up the release of its flagship line of Galaxy S-series smartphones with a more robust version for business users. It comes as no surprise then that the Galaxy S8 Active is being tipped as Samsung' toughest Galaxy phone yet.

Perhaps most notable about the announcement, however, is the fact that AT&T says that it will exclusively offer the Galaxy S8 Active "for a limited time".

Outside of specs, since this phone was made specifically for AT&T, you get access to all of AT&T's services including 5G Evolution (where available), NymberSync, WiFi, HD, and video calling, and their advanced messaging.

Trump says he hopes for 'honest' outcome of Russia probe
There's a lot going on in that sentence so let's unpack it a bit. " Grand jury matters are typically secret". But in an unusually nuanced approach, he attacked Democrats rather than taking on Mueller head on.

The Galaxy S8 Active will be available on its Next plans with prices starting at $28 per month for 30 months.

The images suggest the screen of the device will be 6.3-inches across but will appear to be the same size as the S8 thanks to a lack of bezels. The fingerprint scanner is still located at the rear, and the phone also comes with Samsung's Bixby virtual assistant. Further, the upcoming phones like Galaxy Note 8, Nokia 8, LG V30 are also expected to be powered by the same processor.

The rivals will have to battle it out for the top spot in the market, but Samsung's handset is believed to boast a new design, cutting-edge software and will likely cost less than the iPhone 8. There is a bumper around the frame that helps the device in absorbing shock.

Keeping aside the display and the look of the handset, what makes the phone out-of-the-box is its massive battery setup, which the company claims to deliver a long lasting battery backup.
