Alleged Galaxy S8 Active presentation lists full specs, including a 4,000 mAh battery

The Samsung Galaxy S8 Active is a thing we've been hearing a lot about recently — there's been photos, a video in action, benchmark listings, and more. And now, an alleged presentation outlining most of its key specs, as well as the differences between it and the regular S8 model, has just surfaced on Chinese social media platform Weibo.
The slides conform to pretty much everything we have already heard about the device — it will have the same specs as the S8, save for an increased battery capacity of 4,000 mAh and the rugged body. There's just one problem with the presentation: it lists an "Infinity edge display," which we've seen a number of times is not actually the case. However, given that there's several previously unseen renders of the device as well, we'll let that one slide (get it?)
Also included are the full dimensions of the S8 Active: 5.99" x 2.95" x 0.39", which are unsurprisingly larger than the S8's 5.86" x 2.68" x 0.31". The phone will also weigh 7.30 oz., which is considerably heavier than last year's Galaxy S7 Active and its 6.53 oz.
Also, the S8 Active has a shatter-resistant display, just like its predecessor from a year ago. It's IP68 certified, just like the regular S8 duo, but has a military-grade MIL-STD-810G certification on top of that. It will come in two colors: "Meteor Gray" and "Titanium Gold." Oh and it will come with Android 7.0 out of the box, so it appears Samsung still hasn't figured out the whole software thing just yet.
- Display 5.8" 1440 x 2960 pixels
- Camera 12 MP / 8 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, Octa-core, 2350 MHz
- Storage 64 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 4000 mAh

Samsung please get a clue and make this a universally unlocked phone. What the hell are you guys doing? This is probably one of the best phones that no one knows about. Stop making this a damn AT&T exclusive.

Do people understand that AT&T PAYS to keep this phone exclusive? in other words Samsung isnt losing any money by not selling it unlocked because they're paid well for each one they produce. But hey start a petition or something

That's what most people do not get. Why would Samsung decide to make a product exclusive to one carrier if Samsung had nothing to gain from it? But yay, a petition would be fun!

Still sometimes gotta make you wonder; like how f***ing much does AT&T make it worth Samsung's while to keep it exclusive every damn time though. I'd gladly pay more for this over the mainstream S8 any day.

This is the perfect phone for me, only wish the battery was larger and that the screen was 1080p (forget Sammy's resolution changer, doesn't do much).

You don't need 1080p for good battery Anandtech just released their battery tests and it shows up that the 5.8in S8 had better battery life than the S7 despite having a larger screen + higher resolution
