Samsung Galaxy S8 Has A New Version And Its Specs Just Leaked On Geekbench
Samsung is known for its intriguing tactic of releasing different versions of its flagship smartphone. Last year, the Korean conglomerate followed the Samsung Galaxy S7 with the Galaxy S7 Active. A recent leak points to a new version of the Galaxy S8 - the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active.
As the name implies, the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active will be a ruggedized version of the highly popular 2017 flagship. Just as it did in recent years, Samsung will release a new version of its flagship phone that is more suitable for the harsh environment and rough use.
According to BGR, there have been rumors that Samsung is planning on releasing the Galaxy S8 Active. The first time the Galaxy S8 Active hit the rumor mill was when a supposed image of the device was leaked late last month. The recent Geekbench 4 test results seem to confirm this rumor.
As per GSMArena, the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active is likely nearing its release. GSMArena based its assumption on the said recent benchmark leak showcasing the device. The leak which was uploaded on June 13 and posted on "Slashleaks" indicates that a device that goes by model number SM-G892A went through the Geekbench test and performed well.
The supposed Samsung Galaxy S8 Active scored 1842 in the single-core category while it got a 6394 multi-core score. The scores of the Galaxy S8 Active are impressive, especially when compared with other smartphones with the latest Snapdragon processor. In fact, it ranks just below the Galaxy S8 and the Xiaomi Mi 6 and as good as the HTC U 11 and the Galaxy S8 Plus.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 Active is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor and will run on the Android 7.0 Nougat operating system. The device will also have 4GB of RAM. It's expected to ditch the curved edges as it adopts a more rugged design and body.
