Samsung app update confirms Galaxy S8 Active, J7 Reloaded, and Galaxy Tab A2 S

News of Samsung’s 3 impending devices – the Galaxy S8 active, Galaxy J7 Reloaded, and Tab Active 2 – has ramped up a bit lately. The S8 made its way through the FCC and until now only reports of the upcoming Tab Active 2 had surfaced. It looks like we can now be a lot more certain about their inevitable releases.


The latest update for Samsung Video Library, an app the company offers for on-board video aggregation, has revealed added support for the “Cruiser US AT&T” (Cruiser is the Active’s nickname) as well as the Galaxy J7 Reloaded and Tab A2 S. This update could point to a possible July or August release for most of these devices, likely precluding the Tab A2.


The mid-range J series has been released in Europe, while the J7 Reloaded has yet to make its official debut. The S8 Active has been a device we’ve anticipated for a few months now, and with its recent rumblings, we’re hoping for a release during the summer. News of the Tab A2 has been scarcer, however, with some reports pointing to a potential fall release.

That app update doesn't even mention S8 Active. PhoneArena stop the click bait!

"Cruiser US AT&T" refers to the Galaxy S8 Active. This is referenced in the post. Check the Source link for further info. Thanks!

There is such a lack of communication in this website. I used to come here all the time, but the articles are usually inaccurate. "Upon its release, reports indicate at least one U.S. carrier – Cricket Mobile – will have the J7 for its customers." Hmm, did we forget the article we just wrote, Samsung Galaxy Halo is Cricket Wireless' newest Android Nougat phone. Come on, let's corrolate our articles a bit.

Apologies! This was meant to reference the J7 Reloaded! You're correct, the J7 is out and was also released on AT&T. The article has been corrected and should reflect the update shortly! Thanks!

Now it makes sense that Wi-Fi Alliance certification that was recently reported on the site: Bad for those who thought the Galaxy J7 2015 would receive the Android Nougat.
