The Samsung Galaxy Active line has been AT&T-exclusive since it was first introduced with the Galaxy S4 Active, but that appears to be changing. A new report suggests that T-Mobile will be receiving stock of the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active. The model number reflects this, as it will be SM-G892T in T-Mobile’s system, while it is branded as SM-G892A for AT&T.
The marketing materials reviewed by the source suggests that the phone will be available in both Meteor Gray and Titanium Gold, both of which were revealed for AT&T. No release date has been revealed yet and there are no FCC documents to corroborate the marketing materials, so it could be a few months before we see this device outside of AT&T.

It’s worth noting that the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active features a flat screen instead of the subtly curved screen on both the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus, so it could be a viable option for those who don’t like the new curved screen trend that manufacturers have gone for this year.
What do you think, will you get the Galaxy S8 Active if it comes to T-Mobile?
