Just like the previous S active phones, the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active will be resistant to salt, dust, humidity, rain, vibration, solar radiation, transport and thermal shock. Moreover, the phone will have Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection both on front and back.
In the leaks, the phone looks exactly like the Samsung Galaxy S8 but the screen on this one is flat. Which could mean that it will not feature the Samsung‘s’ Infinity Display but the screen size and resolution might be the same. However, a flat screen will make it easier to put covers and cases on the device.

The internal storage will 64GB which can be expanded by a Micro SD card. Unlike the Galaxy S8, the S8 Active will come with a 4,000 mAh battery, just like the last year’s S7 active, which means the juice will last significantly longer.
