For the past few years, Samsung has been releasing an “Active” variant of its Galaxy S series flagships. The Active variant is always an AT&T exclusive in the United States so it won’t surprise anyone if the Galaxy S8 Active makes its way to AT&T at some point this year. A User Agent String has revealed the existence of the AT&T-bound Galaxy S8 Active.
Model number SM-G892A has been revealed by the User Agent String which suggests, unsurprisingly, that this device will be heading to AT&T.
Reports suggest that the Galaxy S8 Active is going to have MIL-STD-810G standard certification which means that it will be capable of handling bumps and drops of serious nature. It will also have IP68 water and dust resistance certification for enhanced durability.
The specs are likely going to remain the same but we’ve seen Active variants in the past come with slightly larger batteries so it won’t be surprising if the Galaxy S8 Active has a battery bigger than the 3,000mAh battery pack that comes with the normal Galaxy S8.
AT&T and Samsung have not yet made an official announcement about this device. Active variants normally arrive a couple of months after the initial launch so we may not see the Galaxy S8 Active being launched officially until June or July this year.
