AT&T erroneously revealed the presence of the Galaxy S8 Active without publicly making a statement about it but as of right now, the flagship is official and starting from tomorrow, customers can start making pre-orders of the smartphone.

The Galaxy S8 Active has nothing more regarding specs than the typical S8, despite the physical appearance. Designed around a metal frame with an improved, rugged structure, this device is shock-, shatter-, water-, and dust-resistant. It will also feature its fingerprint scanner on its rear panel. The S8 Active is powered by the same Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage found in the original. There's also Bixby on board (with a dedicated button), plus an Activity Zone app (including stuff like stopwatch, compass, barometer, and flashlight). You can drop, and you can dunk it. Samsung says the Galaxy S8 Active is built to withstand "almost anything" due to military-grade design. This device series has been the front-runner in the fight against the Apple iPhone, and with the newest iteration of the iPhone debuting this fall, Samsung has to make its stand in what could be a challenging market. The back of the phone is textured for a better grip, and a bumper on all four sides offers added resistance from tumbles. All in all, the Galaxy S8 Active seems to be a worthy successor to Samsung's previous rugged Active smartphones.

Pre-orders begin Tuesday, and a full release is scheduled for Friday. You'll be able to buy the S8 Active in Titanium Gold or Meteor Gray for as low as $28.34 per month for 30 months.

Shortly following this launch will be the much-anticipated Galaxy Note 8. While that likely means other United States carriers will get the phone soon, that would be a first for the Active range.
