The Galaxy S8 Active is heading to AT&T

Review: Galaxy S8 gives Samsung a shot at reputation rehabilitation

Taking into account the risk design of the Samsung Galaxy S8, especially in its front, we are completely unaware of how the South Korean firm will manage to give its new creation a high degree of resistance without leaving aside the futuristic appearance that defines its new line of devices.

While do check the links we have provided for your region to know about the pre-order offers in your region. The Galaxy S Active lineup of phones is generally inspired by the company's S-flagship device of the year and is known for carrying a rugged body intended for outdoor use. After Apple, Huawei, and LG launched flagship handsets with a dual-camera setup, Samsung was also tipped to do the same.

The S8 will have a 5.8-inch display with no physical phone button, rather an invisible home button, while the S8+ will have a 6.2-inch screen. For instance, the S7 Active comes with a shatter-resistant screen along with IP68 water resistance. The Samsung chip is slated to have outperformed Qualcomm variant in the US.

This seems to work for the company as the Galaxy Edge phones enjoyed rather good sales and the Galaxy S8 already looks like a victor. They run Android 7.0 Nougat. As of now, there's no info whether the Samsung Bixby assistant will be available to Indian market or now.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 has specifications that could possibly outsmart the LG G6 other than its battery. Interestingly enough, there is no fingerprint scanner at the back of the device in this photo, which could not only mean that this variant is from the early stages of development when Samsung hoped it would be able to incorporate the fingerprint scanner in the display itself, it could also hint at the Galaxy Note8's design. Comparing the prices, both the devices may cost above Rs. 50,000 in India. Samsung may launch the DeX dock station in India on the same day.
