You can get a Samsung Galaxy S8 Active at 50% off if you switch to Sprint


Last week, when Samsung announced the upcoming release of
the Galaxy S8 Active on T-Mobile and Sprint, only T-Mobile revealed the
handset’s launch date and price (November 17, $820 outright). As it turns out, Sprint
will start selling this rugged handset on exactly the same day – which, by the
way, is tomorrow.

 

Sprint has a pretty attractive offer for consumers willing
to switch from another carrier, offering the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active for half
the price on an 18-month Flex lease program. If you switch to Sprint, you can
pay just $17.71 per month for the S8 Active (that’s a total …


Rugged Samsung Galaxy S8 Active to be launched by Sprint

Currently available only on AT&T, the Samsung Galaxy S8
Active should soon be released not just by T-Mobile (as recently reported), but
also by Sprint. We’re saying this because a render of a Sprint-bound Galaxy S8
Active was revealed today on Twitter by Evan Blass (aka @evleaks).

 

Sprint may plan to start selling the S8 Active on November 17, as
this is the date that’s seen on the smartphone’s home screen (for a closer look, zoom in on the image embedded on the left). However, for now, there’s
no confirmation on this.

 

Most likely, Sprint’s Samsung Galaxy S8 Active will offer

Deal: Samsung Active InEar headphones are on sale for only $12 (60% off) on Amazon

Samsung’s Active InEar headphones for smartphones are getting cheaper with each passing month. Three weeks ago, the earphones went on sale at Amazon for just $14.50, but if you missed that deal or decided that it’s still a little bit too much to pay for them, you’re in luck.

Amazon is running another sale on the Samsung Active InEar headphones, but this time the retailer has slashed 60% off the MSRP. Basically, you’ll be paying just $12 for the earphones, which usually cost around $30.

There’s a catch though: only the Black Sapphire variant is discounted …

The Samsung Galaxy S8 Active will be Sammy's first phone to support T-Mobile's new 600MHz Band?

Back in April, T-Mobile spent nearly $8 billion to win 31MHz of 600MHz low-frequency spectrum that was part of an FCC auction. Also known as Band 71, the low frequency airwaves travel farther and penetrate buildings better than higher frequency spectrum. Only one handset, the LG V30, currently is available with support for Band 71. Now, FCC documents reveal which handset will be the first from Samsung to work with the 600MHz spectrum.

A new version of the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active (SM-G892U) has been certified by the FCC. This is the rugged version of the Samsung Galaxy S8, better able to …

Rugged Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2 is now official; tablet will launch later this month

Just a few days ago, we passed along some images of the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2. Today, the tablet has been officially introduced by Samsung. With the Active name attached to the slate, you can expect the device to survive “excessive pressure, temperatures, environments, vibration and drops.” The Galaxy Tab Active 2 is certified to meet military specifications. And with an IP certification rating of IP68, the tablet can be submerged in up to nearly 5-feet of water for up to 30-minutes and escape unscathed. The display will even work with wet fingers.

Rugged Samsung Galaxy S8 Active to be released by T-Mobile


T-Mobile may soon release its very first rugged Galaxy S
smartphone. According to VentureBeat, some leaked marketing material (which,
unfortunately, can’t be publicly shared) reveals that T-Mobile is planning to
launch the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active – currently available as an
AT&T-exclusive device, pictured above.

 

T-Mobile’s Galaxy S8 Active (model number SM-G892T) should
be available in the same two color variants that the AT&T variant (SM-G892A)
has: Titanium Gold and Meteor Gray. Things should be similar when it comes to
features, too, which means T-Mobile’s S8 Active will …

Samsung Galaxy S8 Active Review

Introduction

Samsung’s Galaxy Active series, and increasingly ruggedized wearables, have helped establish the company’s prowess as the only true champion for more active (or careless) mobile consumers. Starting with the Galaxy S4 Active, Samsung began offering IP67 waterproofing – years before it was a flagship standard – and rugged design, which has now expanded to military standard certifications in drop tests, extreme temperatures, and IP68 waterproofing. Year after year these Active variants have been released shortly after Samsung’s Galaxy flagship, often tweaking small aspects …

Samsung Galaxy S8 Active unboxing and first look

Samsung’s Galaxy Active series, and increasingly ruggedized
wearables, have helped establish the company as a true champion of outdoors-people and athletes. Or perhaps just the more careless mobile consumer. Starting with the Galaxy S4 Active, Samsung began offering IP67 waterproofing –
years before it was a flagship standard – as well as a rugged design, which has now expanded
to military standard certifications in drop tests, extreme temperatures, and
IP68 waterproofing. Today we take a look at the latest in the “Active” series, the Galaxy S8 Active. Retailing for $849.99 as an …

Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2's leaked specs suggest it's not an entry-level tablet

Samsung has one more ace under its sleeve for those looking to buy a decent Android tablet for outdoor use. That ace is called Galaxy Tab Active 2, a rugged tablet that we’ve learned about for the first time back in June. However, it was only last week that we’ve been able to dig a few details about the slate and find out that it will soon be introduced.

Since information about its specs was scarce, we’re happy to report that the Galaxy Tab Active 2 made it to GFXBench, the app that stores benchmark results for old, new and unreleased smartphones and tablet.

According to the listing, …

Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2 gets certified, expect it to launch very soon


We reported a few months ago that the sequel to the entry-level rugged tablet by Samsung, the Galaxy Tab Active is in the works and that it might be coming soon. Well, it looks like the slate is now one more step closer to release, although we doubt Samsung will hold a launch event just for the Galaxy Tab Active 2.

The US regulatory commission (FCC) has just certified Samsung’s Galaxy Tab Active 2, which goes by model numbers SM-T390 (LTE) and SM-T395 (Wi-Fi only). For the time being, it’s the Wi-Fi only version that got approved by the Federal Communications Commission, but we’re confident …
