It has been a while since the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus was released which means we can start expecting the release of its Active version soon. There are rumors online about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 Active and we will discuss all about it right here. Before we get to the specs, let’s take a look at the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active Dubai price first. It will cost around 3000 to AED 3200 right after the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active release date UAE. Keep reading to find out what to expect inside.
One of the major changes in the Active version is its rugged body and flat display. There are rumors suggesting that the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active will be packing a flat display to make the phone stronger and sturdier. The glass back will be replaced as it will be MIL-STD-810G certified which will make it solar radiation, humidity, thermal shock resistant and more. It will be also dust and water proof which is not really a new feature as the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus are IP68 certified. There won’t be any home button and it will be also near bezel-less like it’s brothers. We will be able to find out more about its design after the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active release date UAE or it’s official announcement.
Everyone loved the rear camera of the latest Samsung Galaxy S series phones and no changes are expected in this department. It will be the same 12-megapixel rear camera and 8-megapixel front camera that we have already seen. The rear camera is capable of capturing 2160p videos at 30fps and 1080p videos at 60fps. For storing the captured contents, there will be 64GB built-in storage. There is nothing to worry about if that doesn’t sound enough as there will be a microSD card slot as well. There is also the iPhone 7 Plus and Google Pixel XL if you are interested to check out some more camera focused phones. These are also in the same pricing range as the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active Dubai price.
One of the best features of the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active will be its bigger battery. It’s rumored to be a big 4000mAh battery which will support Quick Charge 2.0 as well. All the other specs will remain the same: Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core processor, 4GB of RAM, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, iris scanner, fingerprint sensor and Samsung DeX support. There is also the Asus Zenfone 3 Zoom that comes with a big 5000mAh battery.
As the phone has not been officially revealed yet, it’s too early to guess it’s release date. However, it should show up sometimes in August or September, 2017. While it’s not as beautiful as the original Galaxy S8 phones, it’s definitely worth checking out if it’s a rugged phone you are after.
