Galaxy Note 8 - Samsung is Ready to Redeem Itself


Either way, it's safe to assume the Galaxy S8 Active will be able to withstand the occasional drop, shock, fumble and stumble, as well as extreme temperatures and whatnot, though the sleek, fashionable angle of the regular S8 takes a pretty big hit as a direct effect. Both phones are IP68 certified dust and water resistant, but the Galaxy S8 Active also apparently meets the MIL-STD-810G United States military standard, meaning it can survive harsher environments and treatment than your average phone, including the likes of very high and low temperatures. The latter certification means that the device can survive extreme temperatures, very high humidity, rain, and transport shock. The S8 Active is compatible with fast charging too, so if you do get through battery quickly, it can recharged just as fast. The device will be released in two colour options- Meteor Gray and Titanium Gold. Besides, the company would be spending significant money on marketing the Note 8, which would further decline the profits earned. In fact, a video of the same phone recently leaked, giving us full details of what to expect when the phone comes out in the coming days or weeks for that matter.

Speaking of the design, Samsung has opted for a flat display in Galaxy S8 Active as against the Infinity Display found on Galaxy S8 and S8+. Considering the Galaxy S7 Active was only available on AT&T, we'd say there's some weight behind this suggestion. Being a USA -based model, the phone will use a Snapdragon 835 chipset mated with 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage, which will still be expandable via a microSD card. The upcoming handset will be featuring a 12MP camera on the rear and will sport an 8MP camera on the front.

The Galaxy S8 Active will have a Bixby button mapped to various functions such as Activity Zone, quick access to apps, proactive reminders etc.

A ministry official attributed the narrowing gap to Samsung C&T pursuing a more conservative business strategy in recent months compared with Hyundai E&C's more active approach.
