Leak: Samsung might bring back its Active line of smartphones

Android Headlines

According to a recent leak from Android Headlines, Samsung will bring back its Active line of rugged smartphones with the simply-titled Samsung Galaxy Active.

Unlike previous Active smartphones, the Galaxy Active will reportedly not be based on a Galaxy S flagship. That means the phone will not be a rugged version of the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 Plus, or Galaxy S10e. It certainly shows in the leaked image above, which shows three physical buttons below the display and sizable bezels surrounding the display.

Curiously, the leaked render looks identical to the rugged Samsung smartphone spotted during Mobile World Congress in February. Leaked specifications include a 5.2-inch display with 2,540 x 1,440 resolution, an 8MP selfie camera, 12.2MP primary camera, a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, Samsung’s in-house Exynos 9610 processor, a 4,500mAh battery, and Android 8.1 Oreo.

There’s talk of the rumored Samsung Galaxy Active being a re-purposed version of the reportedly-cancelled Galaxy S9 Active. Backing up that talk are the selfie and primary cameras reportedly coming from the Galaxy S9. The mid-range Exynos 9610 processor means the Galaxy Active’s image quality won’t be as good as the Galaxy S9’s, however.

The Galaxy S8 Active

As for when we can expect the Galaxy Active, the report pegged an August 9 launch. The report also stated AT&T will carry the phone. AT&T previously carried the Galaxy S4 Active through the Galaxy S8 Active, the last flagship Active smartphone.

Instead of being marketed to the masses, the Galaxy Active is reportedly aimed at fire and police departments, along with other agencies. That doesn’t mean regular people won’t be able to buy the phone, but don’t expect AT&T to push it to the masses.

This is an unconfirmed report, so take it with a grain of salt. That said, let us know in the comments if the Samsung Galaxy Active is for you.
