Rugged Samsung Galaxy S8 Active receives a green light from the FCC
The device carries a model number of SM-G892A, and even though the phone carries similar specs as the Galaxy S8, the handset will have a slightly different look. Traditionally, the rugged version of Samsung's latest flagship phone features a strong protective casing that can protect it from falls and drops. With its IP68 certification rating, the Galaxy S8 Active can be submerged in water to a depth of nearly 5-feet for as long as 30-minutes.
Now that the FCC has certified the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active, it shouldn't be terribly long before the handset is officially unveiled. If you're the butterfingers type that can't seem to hold on to his/her phone, the Galaxy S8 Active can't arrive soon enough.
