• Samsung Galaxy S8 Active


    The Samsung Galaxy S8 Active shares most of its internals with the regular S8, but it's got a tougher, different-looking exterior. That means you still get the Snapdragon 835 chip, paired with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB, the cameras are also the same as in the S8 (12 MP rear and 8 MP front). The new phone's 5.8-inch, 1440 x 2960 pixels display is flat and protected by raised margins, while a "durable metal frame" makes the device shock-resistant. Overall, the S8 Active will be a bit taller, wider, thicker, and heavier than the regular S8 - not only because of its rugged design, but also because it packs a larger (4000 mAh) battery.

    This device is also known as Samsung SM-G892A
