There have been numerous leaks and news going around about Samsung S8 Active but nothing was confirm and it still is not. Well sort of. As we have just received the leaked pictures of Samsung S8 Active, supposedly bought by someone in AC Forums with AT&T network in the united states.
The user who owns the Samsung S8 Active posted photos online and answer some of the questions by forum’s users. The poster continues for a few more posts and tells us that the phone has a 4,000mAh battery and all the buttons and various ports and holes in the case are in an identical spot to the Galaxy S8+. The user instantly deleted most of the information he posted.

One of the tech website, android police was able to grab some of the information including the pictures and even some of the questioning answering by users and the Samsung S8 Active user. Following is what they spoke about.
- How did you get the S8 Active? I’m guessing it’s for AT&T only?
- Connection with Samsung. Poster goes on to confirm his unit is SIM-locked to AT&T
- Does it scratch easily? Does screen have plastic layer on top?
- No it doesn’t scratch easily. No plastic layer.
- Is the active button still there or is it replaced with Bixby? Is the Active/Bixby button customizable for shortcuts?
- only bixby button. 6 no customization
- What are the materials made of? (Metal bezels, rubberized plastic back?)
- Metal frame, bumpers feel like metal polymer mkx that’s screwed into the sides. Middle of back feels like last year’s.
- How thick is it compared to regular S8?
- it’s about 1.5x thick at the normal s8.
- How slim are the bezels?
- The bezels aren’t thin at all. I’ll post a pic.
- Is the display 100% flat, meaning easier to install screen protector? (None of that 2.5d glass curve?)
- Yes screen is completely flat.
- No answer given.
- Any underwater camera features?
- No underwater mode that I can see, it’s the exact same camera software as on my s8+.
