Samsung has an exclusive rough and tough Galaxy S8 in the pipeline for AT&T.

Samsung’s Galaxy S8 is a wonderful social device of the 21st century. It is also completely wrapped in glass which can get all sorts of nicks and cuts and scratches on it. That is a big drawback of this baby.

So Samsung is busy making a tougher version for AT&T. The people who will buy this hardy smartphone will not have to worry about damaging it. It is a foolproof smartphone that is resistant to all sorts of bumps, crashes and falls.

Termed the Galaxy S8 Active, this smartphone is in the cards and will be the center of attraction on a platform such as AT&T. Beyond this teaser there are little if any details on the deal and what is going on among the insiders.

One scrap of information that has been leaked is the code name for the rogue phone that Samsung has chosen after much forethought. It is “Cruiser” which almost seems to be a wordplay on Hollywood actor Tom Cruise and his tough guy image of someone who is at least physically invincible.

Samsung has floated Active versions of its Galaxy smartphones over the past several years. Yet there were quite a few transformations in the gap between the S7 and S8. Thus what it has in store for eager consumers who have active lifestyles remains somewhat of a mystery.

All erstwhile Active smartphones had three front buttons yet all this might change in 2017. On-screen controls will see to it that this lousy feature undergoes erasure. Also a hard-to-kill-as-grass smartphone will have a curved screen which will add a solid dose of beauty to the boldness.

There is a slim possibility that Samsung will make the changeover to a flat screen but that will radically transform the structure of the smartphone, according to SamMobile.

Samsung has made plain models of its S7 in the past. Alternatives may be worth a gander this year though. While the details regarding the S8 are currently not available, the S7 Active’s main features include an unshatterable screen and a huge battery.

Besides being water-resistant, this smartphone is also dustproof. What else could anyone want? The exact time frame within which the S8 Active will be launched remains an enigma.

If Samsung’s history is anything to go by, it may be in the hot-as-hell month of June. Also the exclusivity that will be lent to AT&T is something which is not about to change.
