Fans of rugged Samsung phones rejoice, the company is said to be working on an Active variant of the Galaxy S8.
The Galaxy S8 Active (code-named Cruiser, model number SM-G892A) will be sold exclusively by AT&T, SamMobile is reporting. Active variants are repurposed versions of flagship devices that are beefed up to handle drops and water submersion better than the original.
The idea of a Galaxy S8 Active is curious because of the S8 has a wrap-around glass display and lacks a physical home button. Making it rugged would involve addressing major parts of the S8's design.
Samsung didn't immediately respond to a request to comment.
