Samsung Galaxy S8 Active rugged smartphone announced in U.S. on AT&T

Most notably, the Galaxy S8 Active comes coated in a thicker frame with metal sides and a polycarbonate material on the back. This device series has been the front-runner in the fight against the Apple iPhone, and with the newest iteration of the iPhone debuting this fall, Samsung has to make its stand in what could be a challenging market.

The Galaxy S8 Active will be available on its Next plans with prices starting at $28 per month for 30 months. Meteor Gray and Titanium Gold are the color options available for the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active in the USA, exclusively available at AT&T NEXT for $28.34/month for 30 months.

'Our new Samsung Galaxy S8 Active is designed with tested durability and strength to address the needs of consumers who need a more rugged device for their lifestyle, ' said Tim Baxter, President and CEO, Samsung Electronics North America. What you do get, however, is a 5.8-inch shatter-resistant Quad HD Super AMOLED display sporting an aspect ratio of 18.5:9.

Samsung has finally announced the rugged version of its flagship smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active. It comes as no surprise then that the Galaxy S8 Active is being tipped as Samsung' toughest Galaxy phone yet.

Leaked photos have also revealed that the Note 8 could be the first Samsung device to incorporate a dual-lens camera. The smartphone is still powered with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 System-on-chip paired by four gigs of RAM. While that likely means other United States carriers will get the phone soon, that would be a first for the Active range. The Galaxy S8 Active will be available in two different colors when it arrives later this week: Meteor Gray and Titanium Gold.

Another reason why you might pick this over another Galaxy phone is the battery.
