    If we talk about the Galaxy S7 Active, it has the same specs lineup as the regular version except for the battery size. The Galaxy S7 came with a 3000mAh battery, while the former packs a large 4000mAh battery inside. So presumably, the Galaxy S8 Active might ship with a bigger battery than the regular Galaxy S8.

    Coming to the design aspect, the Galaxy S8 Active is expected to feature physical buttons on its front since all the Active variants have them. We might as well as see the device in different color variants.

    Rest of the specs will remain unchanged in the Galaxy S8 Active, which means that it will sport a 5.8-inch quad HD display with the resolution of 1440×2960 pixels.

    It will feature 4GB of RAM bundled with a Snapdragon 835 chipset. The storage will be taken care of by 64GB of inbuilt storage. In terms of optics, the device will be boasting a 12MP primary shooter along with a 5MP front-facing camera.

    Considering the past launching patterns of Samsung, the Galaxy S8 could be unveiled in June.
