New render of the Galaxy S8 Active showcases its rugged design


Details about the AT&T-exclusive Galaxy S8 Active have been trickling out for weeks now, but now an official press render for the phone has leaked online, courtesy of noted leaker Evan Blass. It appears to be a pretty different departure from the Otter Box feel of the Galaxy S7 Active.

Just last week we got our first sneak peek at the Galaxy S8 Active, with a leaked photo of the back and a hands-on video being shared on YouTube. Of course, the curved screen of the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ is ditched in favor of a flat version, which should please those of you who wanted a flat Galaxy S8. This is it, but you’ll need to be on AT&T in order to use it.
