Galaxy S8 Active spotted in clearest images yet — and looks like a beast

Over the weekend, a number of hands-on images surfaced online showing off the design of the much-rumored Galaxy S8 Active — and now we have a few more pictures to feast our eyes upon.

This time, the images come courtesy of a different source, who fortunately focused the camera before hitting the shutter button unlike some of the earliest leaks.

In line with previous Active variants, the Galaxy S8 Active sports a flat screen that’s protected by a protruding metal frame; the rest of the handset is constructed from military-grade polycarbonate, apparently.

The biggest difference between the regular Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Active, aside from the increased durability, is battery capacity. The former has a measly 3,000mAh cell, while the latter is driven by a colossal 4,000mAh pack.

There’s also a dedicated Bixby button

Seeing as Bixby Voice is now live in the United States and the Galaxy S8 Active is tipped to be available exclusively through AT&T in the region, potential customers shouldn’t be too disappointed to hear that the handset also features a dedicated Bixby button.
