The leak sheds a lot of light on the smartphone’s specifications such as the fact that the it will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset with the CPU clocked at 2.3GHz coupled with an Adreno 540 GPU. The chipset would be coupled with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage. Up front, the Samsung Galaxy S8 features a 5.4-inch display with a 2008 x1080 resolution although this cannot be confirmed till we get another leak from a credible source since GFXBench has been wrong on this front. The camera at the back is a 12-megapixel sensor with support for autofocus, touch focus, HDR and will feature a dedicated flash. For selfies, Samsung has provided the Galaxy S8 Active with an 8-megapixel with the capability to capture full-HD (1920 x1080) video content.

GFXBench tells us that the handset would be running on Android v.7.0, Nougat with the company’s TouchWiz UI on top. The Galaxy S8 Active comes with the following sensors, an accelerometer, Bluetooth, Compass, GPS, Gyroscope, Light sensor, NFC, WiFi, Pedometer, a proximity sensor and is listed with a single-SIM slot.
