There have been some rumors for a while, and also a confirmation for the rugged version of the Galaxy S8, the Galaxy S8 Active. Also, we do know that it will be released during this summer. Since the Galaxy S4, every version since then, has had its own rugged version.
As we are in a search for more information, we have a leak from AT&T itself which has proven that the Galaxy S8 Active is real. Also, the device is most likely to be coming soon.
As an AT&T promo page says, the Galaxy S8 Active will be under the terms and conditions for a %500-off promo on Samsung TVs when purchasing an eligible phone. What is written on the AT&T’s site is next “You must upgrade or add a new Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ or Galaxy S8 Active purchased on AT&T Next Every Year with eligible postpaid and data wireless service.” With this, as they mention the Galaxy S8 Active, it most surely means that the device will be coming for real.
The TV promotion will be ending by the end of August, so we can be expecting the Galaxy S8 Active until then perhaps. Samsung have already set an unveil date for the Note 8, which will be happening on August 23rd this year, but will they surprise us with the Galaxy S8 Active as well?
From previous rumors, we know that the Galaxy S8 Active will be the most streamlined rugged phone that the company has ever launched.
