    Looks pretty good so far (thanks to the FLAT screen). Not happy that they are ditching physical keys but I guess it's better because the software is already finished for the regular S8 to have on screen buttons. Not going to be pretty but at least not fragile like glass back S8s. Everyone puts a case on their phone anyway so it doesn't matter. What do you think? Definitely more practical than the regular S8. I'm assuming battery capacity will be 4000 or 4500 mAh (typically 30 bigger).

    If it looks like that, I would be a happy customer. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ I think people who are purchasing the active version are not looking for something super flashy and rather something that has a lot of protection and long battery life. Still looks like the bezels are quite small.

    Looks like the G6. Which is a good thing. Depending on final reveal, this is my next phone. If not, G6.

    "Camera" button seems to be in a strange place to me though.

    Finally A FLAT SCREEN OPTION for those who WANT A FLAT SCREEN! Screen protector install will be a breeze, and phone will be more durable.

    That is one of the downsides to having a curved display. While nice, it does pose problems for screen protectors and obviously the edges are more fragile when dropped. Flat screens are nice but ever since I moved to a curved display, can't imagine going back ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    That being said, I do think having a flat screen option is important. Having choice is always good.

    It will definitely have the standard IP68 water and dust resistance, but I'm also expecting some sort of screen 'shatter' resistance. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Nothing military grade but just an improvement. It's designed to be rugged so excited to see what Samsung brings to the table.

    It's supposed to be MIL-STD-810G and IP68 certified.

    Last year, the S7 Active was rated MOST DURABLE smartphone of 2016. There was a YouTube drop test and the guy dropped it over 50 times until he got tired. YouTube it. I'm certain the S8 Active will look pretty similar to last year's design with the rubberized plastic back and an extra layer of polycarbonate on the glass.

    The plastic layer on the screen really sucks.

    It does, though it's the reason why it can survive many drops. You can actually remove the plastic layer off, though it's tricky.

    Probably will be a hybrid Bixby button and Active button, customizable. Probably could disable it all together.
