A leaked image containing the specs of the upcoming Samsung phone that has a model number of SM-G893 has been leaked. The model number of the Galaxy S7 Active from 2016 was SM-G891 and the model number of Galaxy S8 Active from last year was SM-G892. This indicates that the SM-G893 Samsung phone is the upcoming Galaxy S9 Active.
The leaked image states that the Galaxy S9 Active has a 5.8-inch display that produces QHD+ resolution of 2960 x 1440 pixels. The screen resolution suggests that the handset will be offering an aspect ratio of 18.5:9. Like the Galaxy S8 Active, its successor is unlikely to feature a dual edge curved display but will continue to sport Infinity Display design.
The Snapdragon 845 chipset will be powering the Galaxy S9 Active along with 4 GB of RAM. It will feature a native storage of 64 GB. For photography, it will be equipped with a single camera of 12-megapixel that will offer variable aperture to the user. The Galaxy S9 Active is expected to house the same rear camera that is available on the Galaxy S9. Hence, it will allow users to manually adjust the aperture between f/1.5 and f/2.4. For shooting selfies, it will be fitted with an f/1.7 aperture 8-megapixel that is likely to carry support for autofocus. Like its predecessor, the S9 Active is expected to be packed with a massive battery of 4,000mAh capacity.
It is advisable to take the report with the pinch of salt as it is quite easy to create a specs sheet of an upcoming phone and make it appear like a leak. There is no information available on the launch date of the Galaxy S9 Active. Samsung had launched the S8 Active in August last year. Hence, the S9 Active may arrive at the end of Q2 or at the beginning of Q3. Like the predecessor Active models, S9 Active is expected to be exclusively available through AT&T in the U.S.
Since the launch of S9 Active seems to be few months away, the rumor mill is likely to reveal more information on it along with its leaked renders.
