Samsung Galaxy S8 Active appears to be headed for Sprint

The Samsung Galaxy S8 Active should soon be released not just by T-Mobile but also by Sprint, judging by a tweet by @evleaks. We’re saying this because a render of a Sprint-bound Galaxy S8 Active was revealed today on Twitter by Evan Blass.

Samsung’s Active versions of the flagships have typically been exclusive to AT&T in the US, but this is set to change this year.

That would bring the number of carriers in the US to offer the Active smartphone to 3 after the S8 Active launched on AT&T and a recent post by the blass suggested T-Mobile will follow.

Most likely, Sprint’s Galaxy S8 Active will offer the same features that the AT&T version has, including a SDC 835 processor, fingerprint scanner, a 5.8-inch flat display with 1440 x 2960 pixels, and a very capable 12 MP rear camera. Like AT&T, Sprint will probably sell the Galaxy S8 Active for around $800.

Sprint may plan to start selling the S8 Active on November 17, as this is the date that’s seen on the phone home screen. However, for now, there’s no confirmation on this.
