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.
