With the common Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus nonetheless comparatively new gadgets, we haven’t heard an excessive amount of about their rugged counterpart, the Galaxy S8 Lively. Earlier rumors have indicated that it’s certainly coming, however at present a brand new itemizing with the Wi-fi Energy Consortium is taking all the pieces one step additional by really displaying us a picture of the machine. As anticipated, it seems a good bit totally different from the usual Galaxy S8.
After all, that’s as a result of this telephone must be considerably extra rugged than the Galaxy S8 is. Whereas the usual S8 is IP68 rated, making it waterproof to an extent, its curved show and tiny bezels don’t precisely make for a telephone that may stand as much as abuse. With that in thoughts, it isn’t a lot of a shocker to see a wholly flat show on this picture of the Galaxy S8 Lively.
Certainly, there isn’t any fancy curved show right here, only a telephone that appears extra like a conventional slate. The bodily residence button remains to be lacking, so we will nearly actually sit up for the identical software program implementation we’ve in the usual Galaxy S8. Apart from these two notable options, there isn’t a complete lot we will glean from this picture.
One factor to notice, nonetheless, is that the bezels nonetheless appear to be comparatively small. Whereas the Galaxy S8 Lively might not have an edge-to-edge show just like the Galaxy S8 does, it appears that evidently we will nonetheless sit up for a show that takes up a lot of the entrance of the telephone. We will additionally see the devoted Bixby button on the left aspect of the machine, which is one other function that implies we’re certainly wanting on the Galaxy S8 Lively right here.
Clearly, take this with the grain of salt – even when that is the Galaxy S8 Lively, the telephone that will get an precise reveal may find yourself wanting totally different. The picture isn’t accompanied by some other important data, so we’ll simply have to attend on Samsung for that. When the telephone does arrive, although, count on it to launch at AT&T – earlier telephones within the Lively line have been unique to that provider within the US. We’ll maintain our eyes peeled for extra data, so keep tuned.
