Galaxy S8 Active HerstellerGalaxy S8 Active Specs and PricesSamsung has officially unveiled the outdoor version of the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8 Active.

Although already the current Samsung Galaxy S8 is protected against water and dust, the manufacturer starts again an outdoor variant. The Galaxy S8 Active is even more robust and also offers the military standard MIL-STD-810G.

The Galaxy S8 Active is supposed to be the most resistant Galaxy smartphone of the manufacturer. It was tested in 21 sub-tests, including low temperatures, vibrations and high air pressure.

Technical specifications of the Galaxy S8 Active

The outdoor smartphone is operated via a 5.8 inch AMOLED display in the format 18.5: 9 with a QHD + resolution. Otherwise the equipment is similar to the “normal” Galaxy S8. However, the screen is not bent sideways. Probably an edge display would not have been compatible with military standards. The drive is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor with 4 gigabytes of memory and 64 gigabytes of flash memory.

The main camera with 12-megapixel corresponds to the Galaxy S8. For sufficient running time a 4,000 mAh strong battery is integrated. In the Galaxy S8 is a 3.000 mAh strong Energiespender responsible. At the US operator AT & T, the Galaxy S8 Active can be pre-ordered for a single price of 849 US dollars (circa 720 Euro). A market launch in Germany is still questionable.
