Leaked Specs of Samsung Galaxy S8 Active

Technology

The memory combo is 4 GB RAM + 64 GB storage with microSD slot for up to 256 GB more. The cameras are the same as the other two phones from the S8 family – 12 MP on the back, 8 MP on the front, both of them with f/1.7 aperture.

Since the Galaxy S8 Active comes with a polycarbonate back and metal rims it will retain the support for wireless charging. It’s key advantage over the its far prettier Galaxy S8 siblings is the MIL-STD-810G-certified shock resistance, which should give clumsier users a piece of mind.

As a downside the added ruggedness and larger battery have significantly boosted the weight to 208g – that’s over 50g more than the vanilla Galaxy S8. Thickness has also increased to 9.9mm.

The Galaxy S8 Active will have a 5.8” Super AMOLED screen with 2960×1440 pixel resolution. That matches the specs of the Galaxy S8 panel, but there won’t be curved edges this time around. Similarities continue with Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and the Snapdragon 835 chipset.

The big difference is battery capacity – the Galaxy S8 Active will offer a huge 4,000 juice pack, compared to the 3,000mAh battery of the Galaxy S8.
