Rugged Samsung Galaxy S8 Active to be launched by Sprint

Rugged Samsung Galaxy S8 Active to be launched by Sprint
Currently available only on AT&T, the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active should soon be released not just by T-Mobile (as recently reported), but also by Sprint. We're saying this because a render of a Sprint-bound Galaxy S8 Active was revealed today on Twitter by Evan Blass (aka @evleaks).


Sprint may plan to start selling the S8 Active on November 17, as this is the date that's seen on the smartphone's home screen (for a closer look, zoom in on the image embedded on the left). However, for now, there's no confirmation on this.


Most likely, Sprint's Samsung Galaxy S8 Active will offer the same features that the AT&T version has, including a Snapdragon 835 processor, fingerprint scanner, a 5.8-inch flat display with 1440 x 2960 pixels, and a very capable 12 MP rear camera. Plus, of course, the phone should be water-resistant and drop-resistant (from up to 5 feet).


Like AT&T, Sprint will probably sell the Galaxy S8 Active for around $800. In case you're wondering, this won't be Sprint's first high-end rugged phone from Samsung, as the carrier also had a Galaxy S5 Sport some years back.
