Samsung is known for releasing the Active editions of its flagship phones, and today we might have got the first look of the rugged Samsung Galaxy S8.

Dominique Henderson, a user on the Android Central forums, started a thread last night, claiming they have a Galaxy S8 Active. The thread contained both pictures and a hands-on video, though the video has since been taken down.

From the images, the handset looks very similar to the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, but it seems to lack the 3D curved glass edge. It does have the 18:5:9 aspect ratio though. According to the poster, the screen is covered with a polycarbonate layer on top. The Active version comes with severely thicker bezels on all sides, probably for better protection of the display and internals of the phone. The frame itself is reportedly metal, with metal and polymer bumpers in all four corners.

This version of the phone will also have an increased battery, of 4000 mAh, as opposed to the 3,500 mAh power pack on the Galaxy S8 Plus and the 3,000 mAh one on the Galaxy S8. However, the phone will be missing some software features unique to previous Active models. For example, the user says the S8 Active's camera app lacks last year's Aqua mode, which was meant for shooting photos and videos underwater. However, this is a preproduction unit, so there is time for improvement.
