Images and hands-on video of the Galaxy S8 Active leaked

It looks better than its predecessor, no doubt.

News Writer - Details here

Less than a week ago, we had the new Galaxy S8 Active as billed for launch by the end of July. We're still eight days before the month comes to a close but we've already gotten live images, a hands-on video, and an AMA from a user of the S8 Active. The video has been taken down but users managed to salvage screenshots.

The source of the leak? A Redditor who got his hands on the device by unknown means. A surprise, but a welcome one nonetheless. 

The leak confirmed a few things we've known about the device for a while, most notable being its battery and build. The S8 Active is a rugged version of the S8, which means it forgoes the S8's infinity display and delicate build for something a bit more solid. 

The leak also confirmed that the S8 Active has the same software as the S8, with it also running on Android 7.0, which is a bit disappointing. While its build may be different, it apparently retains the same screen size as the S8, and also houses a non-customizable Bixby button. It abandons the Active button, though.

Here's a rundown of some confirmed details.

  • Snapdragon 835
  • 5.8" QHD display
  • 4000mAh battery
  • 4GB of RAM
  • 64GB of storage
  • Polycarbonate back, metal sides

It also seems to be carrier-locked to AT&T, just like we reported a few months ago.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
