Samsung’s yearly cycle of following up its major flagship Galaxy smartphone release in the form of Active variant looks likely to continue as the company gets ready to launch the more rugged version of Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ phones. Details of the specs have been kept under tight wrap to avoid leaks. But these days its getting increasingly harder for companies to protect secrets related to their upcoming products from surfacing online. If you are in the market looking for a new top-of-the-line Android phone, you might want to wait and look at the leaked specs of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9 Active before making the final purchase decision. Maybe these alleged leaked hardware specifications convince you to hold back your purchase decision until the release of the 2018 version of Galaxy Active series.
The South Korean electronic giant appears anxious to stem the drop in sales due to lukewarm reception that its 2018 lineup of flagship Galaxy devices has received in major markets. The Galaxy S9 Active seems a step in that direction. Although both Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are amazing devices and are highly recommended if you are on the lookout for a new high end Android smartphone, but if you do not find their aesthetics to your linking, the upcoming S9 Active might just be what you are looking for.
Android smartphone market is getting over-saturated due to new manufacturers entering the already crowded space. Google’s Pixel 2 is being hailed as amazing smartphone with great camera quality. Essential phone is a new entry as it looks to disrupt the prevailing dominance of established players in the business. Gap between major Android phone makers and new companies is shrinking with each passing year. That said, there is still a long way to go before others could match the brilliance of Samsung’s flagship devices in terms offering a complete overall package in one phone. The display, camera, software, exclusive apps, services, and snappy experience of the high end Galaxy phones is unmatched in Android sphere.
Samsung is rumored to be working on the Active version of its new flagship phone. It differs in hardware quality as the body of the Galaxy Active variant tends to be rugged with slight tweaks to the existing Galaxy S9 design. The new Galaxy S9 Active might just be the shot in the arm that Samsung needs to pull back lagging sale numbers of this year’s Galaxy flagship.
This brings us to our topic of leaked specs of the Active phone posted by the folks over there at Ready Ricks. They have uploaded a picture showing the alleged specs of an unannounced smartphone. But upon a glimpse of the leaked image, it becomes abundantly clear which device it is referring to. The site itself pointed that the image “surfaced online”, indicating that they are not the prime source of the leak.
But still, specs seem in line with what you would expect to be included in the SM-G893 Galaxy S9 Active model number.
If this picture is to be believed, then the Galaxy S9 Active will feature a Snapdragon 845 chip, a 12-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front-facing lens for selfies. A 4,000mAh battery and the 5.8-inch Super AMOLED display round up the leaked specs sheet.
