The rugged version of Samsung’s 2017 flagship will be available in Meteor Gray or Titanium Gold color options.

The device will also have a flat display instead of Samsung’s flagship signature dual-edge curved display. However, the Galaxy S8 Active will include an 18.5:9 aspect ratio and on-screen home button. It will also feature its fingerprint scanner on its rear panel.
