See the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active in action in this leaked hands-on video

Another rugged version of a Samsung flagship is expected to land in the United States in the not so distant future, the Galaxy S8 Active. A plethora of hands-on pictures leaked recently, so you might already know what the phone looks like if you've following our news feed.

Fortunately for us tech-savvies, the same source who leaked the images has just uploaded a hands-on video with the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active, so if you want to see the smartphone in action, you can watch the video above.

Unlike the previous rugged smartphones (Galaxy S6 and S7 Active) carried by AT&T, the Galaxy S8 Active is more akin to the standard model, as bezels are thinner and there's no Home button on the front. Sadly, that means the positioning of the fingerprint sensor remains awkward.

Specs-wise, Samsung Galaxy S8 Active keeps the MIL-STD-810G certification just like the predecessor, as well as the massive 4,000 mAh battery.

The Galaxy S8 Active doesn't look like a standard bulky, rugged smartphone since Samsung tried to make it as thin and light as the Galaxy S8 and S8+ models. Of course, the much larger battery and the special certification requires a thicker and heavier body, but it doesn't look that way from the hands-on video.

Here is what the phone's owner had to say about the overall design of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 Active, soon to hit the shelves at AT&T:
