The Samsung Galaxy S series smartphones have been hailed for their performance over the years. Samsung’s flagship smartphones, the S-series phones have been coming out in two variants over the past few years. However, a third, tougher version usually comes out with the suffix ‘Active’. AT&T and Samsung are working together in creating the AT&T Samsung Galaxy S8 Active smartphone.
The AT&T Samsung Galaxy S8 Active is currently being built under the model number: SM-G892A codenamed Cruiser. The phone is expected to be quite like the regular Samsung Galaxy S8, but will be more durable – a rough and tough device for those who are either adventurous and outgoing or quite clumsy. While AT&T hasn’t made any official announcements regarding the phone so far, but SamMobile reports indicate that it is indeed expected to come out in the months to follow.
As of now we do not know if AT&T plans to release it only for the 5.8 inched S8, or the larger, 6.2 inched S8 Plus as well. The AT&T Samsung Galaxy S8 Active is not only going to be tougher and more durable, it is also expected to come out with a stronger battery. The AT&T Samsung Galaxy S8 Active will not immediately follow the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, but would release a few months later.
The Active branded smartphones in the past used to come out with the MIL-STD-810G military standard durability. Same is expected to be the case with the AT&T Samsung Galaxy S8 Active. It will also be quite curious to see if Samsung releases the phone with an ‘Active’ button, which has usually been a part of these devices for quite a while. Considering that even the regular S8 and S8 Plus come with 4 buttons already, it would be interesting to see where, if at all, Samsung place the fifth button.
