Fans and lovers of Samsung can now pre-order the Galaxy S8 Active through telecommunication giant AT&T. The device will be available for $28.34 per month for 30 months, which adds up to around $850.
According to Samsung, it’s the toughest and most rugged Galaxy smartphone yet which features a rugged design and military-grade screen that makes it shock, shatter, water, and dust resistant.
The device is bound by a metal frame and a bumper to shield it from shocks, while the back cover has a rugged, tough texture for a secure grip. The phone also features Bixby with the voice assistant’s home screen including quick access to a stopwatch, barometer, compass, and flashlight.
In a statement, Tim Baxter, president and CEO of Samsung Electronics North America said: “Our new Samsung Galaxy S8 Active is designed with tested durability and strength to address the needs of consumers who need a more rugged device for their lifestyle.”
The device will come in Meteor Gray or Titanium Gold and will be available in-store from August 11.
