It is however unclear whether the Active will be released with the Active key or the Bixby button. Aside from this, the smartphone should have the same internals as the Galaxy S8, meaning that it will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 platform, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
Nevertheless, the Galaxy S8 Active is expected to come with a battery larger than the one found on the Galaxy S8+, a 4,000mAh juicer, similar to the one on the Galaxy S7 Active. It’s also said to feature MIL-STD-810G certification for enhanced protection against damage, aside from its IP68 protection against water and dust damages, also found on the Galaxy S8 and S8+. The smartphone was also recently spotted in the User Agent String with the code number SM-G892A.
