Galaxy S8 Active on AT&T?

6 November, 2017 Samsung

If the title did not strike you as odd, then that's because you probably don't know about the history of Samsung Galaxy S Active series. Till date, AT&T has been the only carrier to launch and sell the Galaxy S Active series of smartphones. However, according to a recent report by Evan Blass and a number of other rumors, Samsung is about to break the Active series out of the exclusive partnership deal with AT&T to make the S8 Active also available on other carriers such as Sprint and T-Mobile.

The Galaxy S8 Active (SM-G892A) became available for purchase from AT&T back in August, but it seems like the rugged handset will become available across other networks by the time the Holidays arrive (or sooner). Interestingly, we have also seen another model of the S8 Active appear on Wi-Fi Alliance for testing purposes, which had the model number SM-G892U. As "U" most likely stands for "Unlocked," we wouldn't be surprised if Samsung is planning to release an unlocked version of the durable handset as well.
