Samsung has a brand new version of the Galaxy S8 version you can finally buy, one that you’ve seen featured in countless leaks so far: The Galaxy S8 Active.Intended to be more durable than the regular Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, the Active model is finally official. As expected, AT&T is the place to buy it, just like all Active models before it.
Just as expected, the Galaxy S8 Active will have a flat screen. And while the display isn’t as big as the normal Galaxy S8’s, it still occupies most of the front of the phone. The screen measures 5.8 inches, and it’s a 2K Super AMOLED display with 18.5:9 aspect ratio.
The phone sports a metal frame and a polycarbonate back, which means it’ll handle accidental drops much better than the normal S8, which is the most fragile smartphone SquareTrade has ever tested. The S8 Active is dust and water resistant, just like the Galaxy S8 models, but it also comes with military certification (MIL-STD-810G).
The phone will get you the same specs as the Galaxy S8 model, except for the battery, which is significantly bigger at 4,000 mAh. Bixby support is also included out of the box. Samsung’s Galaxy S8 Active will be available for preorder on August 8th, hitting stores on August 11th. AT&T will charge you $28.34 per month for 30 months for the new phone, which totals $850.
