As you can see, the Galaxy S8 Active comes with a flat display panel like the previous S Active models. It’s understandable as Samsung ditches the curved sides in a more rugged build. However, unlike its predecessors, intead of the physical keys, the S8 Active sports capacitive keys for navigation. The Bixby button is also brought into the S8 line. The double SIM card holders with the hybrid one for the microSD card slot is placed on the back side. The device is expected to be made of polycarbonate and covered by metallic sides, which would be comfortable while handling the device; a contrast to the fragility of the S8 siblings.
The S8 Active, of course, would absolutely be thicker than the S8 and S8+, because of its larger 4000mAh battery. Other rest of its specifications is expected to be mostly similar to the Galaxy S8. The S8 Active is rumored to be provided by AT&T, but the leaked images did not mention the carrier on the hardware.
