Customary of what we do best, we have gotten down to the bottom of all the latest Samsung Galaxy S8 Active rumors. In determining reality from fiction, we now know what to expect from Samsung’s rugged flagship that is set to launch during Q2 of 2017. With more changes to the entire concept to make the S8 Active more appealing to a wider array of users, those looking for a high quality phone that was built to last will want to check out Sammy’s latest.
The Galaxy S8 Active is still a way off, but that hasn’t stopped some of the most intriguing rumors from taking shape. We’ve determined what to expect from Samsung’s upcoming flagship, and what we know so far it’ll definitely be the best Galaxy S Active yet.
One of the most prevalent rumors is the idea the Galaxy S8 Active will sport an iris scanner. This rumor sounds more like a reality as we already know that Sammy is looking to integrate the next gen technology in all of their upcoming flagships. Debuting in the Note 7, an iris scanner significantly improves security.
This is expected to help pave the way for mobile payments such as Samsung Pay and Google Pay. Both have become more widely used at merchants internationally, and with added security it’ll only become more widespread.
One of the biggest disappointments with the Galaxy S7 Active was the lack of expandable memory. This seems to be a thing of the past as we’re hearing the S8 Active will have dual micro SD card slots. This will add 128GB memory per slot giving users at least 300GB of onboard memory. This means more downloads, images, video recording, and much more that you can store onboard.
Women’s Color Options
Since launching years ago, the Galaxy S Active series has become more accepted by men than women. Many people believe this is partly because of the lack of women’s color options such as a blue and pink, but rumors suggest this is a thing of the past. We’re hearing both blue and pink will be seen in the S8 Active along with the typical colors including gold, grey, black and titanium.
Another rumor on the GS8 Active suggests we’ll see an upgraded version of Corning Glass. The current models sports Corning Gorilla Glass 4, but the 5th generation is said to be a nearly indestructible screen. This will bode well for consumers as the screen will match the rugged nature of the phone itself creating one amazing concept.
