AT&T confirms the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active, forgets to provide launch details

8

There's no doubt that Samsung Galaxy S8 Active is real and that it will make its debut in the United States pretty soon. We've been able to learn everything there is to know about the rugged smartphone, but not when it will be launched.

AT&T is still mum on the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active's availability, but the carrier made a mistake earlier today and confirmed it would start selling the smartphone soon.

The unannounced rugged handset appears in a new promotion that offers customers who switch to DirecTV and buy a Galaxy S8 with AT&T's Next plan, a $500 discount on their next Samsung TV purchase.

At the bottom of the webpage, there's a FAQ that explains which phones are eligible for the promotion, as well as other information about the deal.



Well, it appears that to benefit from the promo, you'll need to upgrade or add a new Galaxy S8/S8+ or Galaxy S8 Active purchased on AT&T Next or AT&T Next Every Year.

So, even if AT&T admits that it will carry the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active at some point, it overlooks one important aspect that many consumers may be interested in: the launch date.
