AT&T has been offering the Active versions of Galaxy S flagships for years and this year is expected to be no different.
While the report doesn't specifically state this, it seems likely that AT&T will only retail an Active variant of the 5.8-inch Galaxy S8, while the 6.2-inch Galaxy S8 Plus won't get the same treatment, just like a year ago when Samsung only released an AT&T-exclusive Galaxy S7 Active. The Note 7 debacle previous year certainly was a bad situation to be in, making the tech giant skip the Mobile World Congress and delay the Galaxy S8 launch.More news: Rumor: Intel Will Launch Coffee Lake, Basin Falls Earlier Than Expected
The reports come from "sources close to Samsung" via thebell.co.kr, and reveal that Galaxy S9 display panel samples could be ready as early as mid-April 2017. With the Galaxy S8 featuring a radical design with its Infinity display, it will be interesting to see how Samsung adopts that, or if at all it does, into the device.

Samsung's mobile business chief Koh Dong-jin introduce Galaxy S8. Samsung Galaxy S8 series smartphones will pack Exynos 8995 octa-core processor in India, instead of Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, which is limited to the U.S. and other select markets. It is now set to launch in India on April 19, as reports suggests. Both the phones feature 64GB of internal storage with support for storage expansion via dedicated microSD card slot. We'll have to wait and watch how Samsung decides to price its flagship smartphones in India. As far as protection is concerned, one can only assume that the Galaxy S8's IP68 certification will remain on the handset, but it will most likely arrive with a beefier shell that will protect it from drops. The duo run on Android Nougat based TouchWiz UI on top. Meeting its expectations, the Galaxy S8 has already drawn 728,000 preorders over the last six days since its launch, and the number is expected to exceed 1 million by next Monday.More news: 'Supercard' Startup Plastc Goes Belly Up, Screwing Thousands Of Backers
