Samsung Galaxy S8 Active clears Wi-Fi certification on its way to AT&T


The rugged version of Samsung Galaxy S8 is expected to arrive at AT&T any moment now. We've been hearing about the smartphone for two months now, so there's no doubt the Galaxy S8 Active will make its debut in the United States very soon.

The smartphone has been spotted on User Agent String last week, and now it's been listed at Wi-Fi Alliance with the same model number: Samsung SM-G892A. The smartphone has received its Wi-Fi certification, which means it's one step closer to market release.

Aside from the model number, no other information about the rugged handset has been revealed by the listing at Wi-Fi Alliance. Obviously, it will offer MIL-STD-810G and IP68 certifications since this is a rugged smartphone.

Specs-wise, we're expecting the Galaxy S8 Active to have dumbed-down features and a mid-range price. Rumor has it, the smartphone will be launched at AT&T sometime in June, but the carrier has yet to announce an exact release date for the rugged handset.
