Galaxy S8 Active now one step closer to its release

At the beginning of the month, we reported that Samsung is gearing up to launch a ruggedized variant of the Galaxy S8 — and now it looks like it will hit the shelves a lot sooner than we initially thought.

On Monday, the long-rumored Galaxy S8 Active was certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance, bearing the model number SM-G892A, which we believe to be assigned to the AT&T-branded version of the handset.

Sadly, we don’t know a great deal about the Galaxy S8 Active

Aside from expecting the Galaxy S8 Active to adhere to the MIL-STD-810G standard of durability (that’s a no-brainer, right?), we’re guessing it will also sport similar internals to the standard Galaxy S8.

If this turns out to be the case, the device will feature a 5.8-inch display, an Exynos 8895/Snapdragon 835 processor, a 12MP rear-facing camera, an 8MP selfie shooter and a 3,000mAh battery.
