Samsung introduced the rugged Galaxy S4 Active line up back in 2013, and since then, the handset was exclusive to AT&T in the United States.
However, it seems things are about to change in the near future as T-Mobile is expected to launch the Galaxy S8 Active in the coming weeks.
Recently, the folks at VentureBeat managed to get their handset on the marketing material for the Galaxy S8 Active, hinting at the launch of the handset on the Magenta carrier. The device is expected to come with model number SM-G892T (compared to AT&T which is G892A). The handset will launch in Meteor Gray and Titanium Gold color options.
Unfortunately, there’s no exact availability date available at the moment, but the handset has apparently passed FCC and Bluetooth SIG certifications.
The handset comes with a similar set of specifications as the Galaxy S8, featuring a 5.8-inch display sporting a resolution of 2960 by 1440 pixels resolution, a Snapdragon 835 processor paired with 4GB of RAM and 64Gb of internal storage coupled with a microSD card slot. There’s a 12MP camera for photos and videos, 8MP front-facing camera, a monstrous 4,000 mAh battery and ships with Android 7.0 Nougat as its operating system.
