The Samsung Galaxy S8 Active just leaked in exceptionally cryptic style

The Samsung Galaxy S8 Active, codenamed Cruiser, has been spied in a User Agent String, meaning it could be nearly ready to launch.

It’s difficult to find fault with Samsung’s latest smartphone efforts, the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, but the South Korean electronics giant is unlikely to stop there, as it typically launches a slew of spin-off handsets derived from its S-series flagships.

That means devices such as an ultra-ruggedised Galaxy S8 Active are likely to be incoming over the summer, at least if a recently spied User Agent String is any indication.

The find comes to us from respected mobile tipster Roland Quandt via Twitter:


Now, tying to decipher a User Agent String is a bit like attempting to read Cyrillic, but the bit that matters here is the model number ‘SM-G892A’, which is believed to refer to a Galaxy S8 Active variant being readied for US mobile network AT&T (H/T SamMobile).

That’s all we know for now – the S8 Active’s specs are still a mystery, though they’ll be close to the S8’s in all likelihood – but Samsung usually starts rolling out its new Active phones in June, so we’re likely to learn more then.
