Latest Upcoming Smartphone Samsung Galaxy S8, LG G6

And this is not an understatement when I say this, but the Galaxy S8 is possibly the most gorgeous smartphone till date.

Although there were doubts about Samsung releasing the Galaxy S8 Active this time around, a report from SamMobile claimed that the device indeed exists.

Market sources in India reveal that the Galaxy S8 may be available for Indian consumers between Rs 50,000 and Rs 60,000, but Samsung India has not officially commented on local prices.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 come with a 3000mAh battery unit, while the S8+ has a beefy 3500mAh unit.

Unlike past Galaxy S sets which took the pricing to about $100 expensive than last year, this year, with the Galaxy S8, Samsung hasn't pushed the price by that much when compared to Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge respectively. We've seen such devices from Apple, HTC, LG, and Huawei, just to name a few.

Samsung is working on a new Galaxy S8 Active model now codenamed Cruiser, Samsung-tracking site SamMobile is reporting, citing sources who claim to have knowledge of the company's plans.

With each new edition of its flagship line, Samsung is used to launch an ultra-resistant variant called Active.

To remind you of the smartphone's specifications, the Samsung Galaxy S8 sports a 5.8-inch QHD+ curved Super AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection.

There has been some debate over what Samsung has planned for a possible "active" version of its Galaxy S8. However, the spokesperson disclosed the number of pre-orders for the S8 and S8 Plus in home market of South Korea, which were recorded at more than 728,000.

What is known about the Galaxy S8 Active is that it indeed exists.

The Galaxy S8 and S8+ also feature some of the most advanced types of security features. Rumor has it that Samsung has revved up its research and development in order release a small supply of Galaxy X smartphones by the end of this year. The device will be IP68 certified for dust and water resistance as devices in the Active lineup usually do.
