After a grand success of Galaxy S8, the Samsung is now planning for an another version of the same device with name Galaxy S8 Active, which is believed to get a flat display, unlike the Galaxy S8 that comes with a curved display at sides. Few leaked images have appeared online, which explain that the Galaxy S8 Active would get 5.8 inches of flat AMOLED display, making its look similar to LG G6.
Now, one thing to notice here is, the display has rounded edges but the top bezel is way thicker than the original S8, which in my personal view doesn’t look much attractive. On the top bezel, the device gets a front facing camera. The bottom bezel looks similar to the original S8 with on-screen buttons. Additionally, the phone would get Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection, IP68 certification (water and dust resistant).
Another major change, which is believed in Galaxy S8 Active is its battery. As per as leaked reports, this device would pack a massive battery of 4000mAh, which is way more than the original S8. Additionally, this device would feature Qi wireless charging and also run on latest Android Nougat, out of the box.
As far as other specifications are concerned, the Galaxy S8 Active would get a Snapdragon 835 chipset coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.Coming to the cameras, the device would feature a 12MP shooter at the back and an 8MP shooter at the front. Now, reports also say that the rear camera would be capable of recording 4K videos.
The Galaxy S8 Active would be available in three color variants, Camo Green, Titanium Gray, Sandy Gold. Additionally, this device would get Type C support, OTG, Iris Scanner, back mounted fingerprint scanner, Samsung Pay support. As of now, there is no information about its price.
