Samsung Galaxy S9 Active Alleged Specs Revealed Online

Samsung Galaxy S9 Active Alleged Specs Revealed Online

Previous Active variants of Samsung's flagship smartphones were limited to AT&T in the United States, but that changed a year ago when the Galaxy S8 Active was also launched on T-Mobile and Sprint.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 benefits from its smaller screen, though.

As has been the case in years past, Samsung is reportedly working on a ruggedized version of its flagship Galaxy S9 smartphone. For one, the S9 Active is said to receive a 4,000mAh battery instead of the 3,000mAh on the standard model.

Coming to the other specifications of the handset, the Samsung Galaxy S9 Active is expected to sport a 5.8-inch QHD+ display with a resolution of 1140 X 2960 pixels. Dubbed the Galaxy S9 Active, the new phone is expected to include most or all of the Galaxy S9's key features, but it'll also offer a new design as well as improved water, dust, and impact resistance.

Several reports of disappointing sales have popped up in the month and a half since the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ were released. "Samsung has made significant improvements to its go-to-market strategy, with wider availability of the S9 in more markets at launch".

In terms of optics, the smartphone will be equipped with a 12-megapixel rear sensor with dual aperture. It will have a 5.8-inch flat panel and will be powered by the Snapdragon 845 chip from Qualcomm with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.

The source says that the Galaxy S9 Active will be launched sometime in the July-September period. It's in line with the series as the Galaxy S8 Active is SM-G892 and the Galaxy S7 Active's model number is SM-G891. However, if Samsung is indeed making a Galaxy S9 Active, we would love to see these internals.
