If the rumors are to be believed, you can expect an imminent launch of the Samsung Galaxy S8 because the handset has surfaced on Geekbench bearing Snapdragon 835 processor. If a smartphone hits the Geekbench benchmarking portal, then the phone will hit retail shelves very soon.

With model number samsung SM-G892A, the rumored Galaxy S8 Active handset ships with Snapdragon processor running at 1.90GHz. Moreover, the chipset includes 8 cores, which ensures lag free performance. Although the processor name is not mentioned, we can guess that it should be Snapdragon 835.

Moreover, the motherboard ID is tagged as msm8998 with 3332 MB RAM. You can infer the capacity of the RAM as 4GB since benchmarking specifications will be lower than the actual capacity. While the single-core score grabs a value of 1842, the multi-core is tagged with a massive score of 6394.

Expected to ship with the same specifications as the Galaxy S8, the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active will not feature curved edges. However, the upcoming smartphone will ship with a rugged design to resist falls.

When Chinese companies are investing hard in the rugged category, Samsung is not concentrating on the development of rugged smartphones. If the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active is really a rugged design, then the company will set new benchmarks in the smartphone segment.
