Samsung's new smartphone can withstand 'anything'

Samsung's new smartphone can withstand "almost anything".

The multinational technology company have unveiled their latest mobile phone, the Samsung Galaxy S8 Active, which is "more rugged" than other smartphones.

Explaining the features of the phone, they wrote: "Constructed with military-grade materials for the utmost durability, this shatter, dust and water-resistant smartphone has a metal frame and bumper to protect against shock, abrasion, tilting or twisting. The back cover also has a rugged, tough texture for a secure grip.

"It has a shatter-resistant screen that provides a protective layer for the 5.8-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED Display. The screen's 18.5:9 aspect ratio provides an expansive display making the device easier to hold, so you can enjoy bright, vivid colors while watching your favorite shows and movies on DIRECTV NOW."

The smartphone also promises longer battery life with the large 4,000 mAh battery that can be powered up wirelessly.

It also benefits from Bixby, an "intelligent interface that learns from you to help you get more done".

Talking about the software, they added: "Bixby includes intelligent vision, voice, a personalized home page and smart reminders. It's like having a personal and intelligent voice assistant at your fingertips.

"With a simple swipe or press of a button, the Hello Bixby home screen greets you with quick access to active lifestyle features such as a stopwatch, barometer, compass, and flashlight. This makes Bixby a great companion for your outdoor adventures."

Tim Baxter, President and CEO of Samsung Electronics North America, added: "Our new Samsung Galaxy S8 Active is designed with tested durability and strength to address the needs of consumers who need a more rugged device for their lifestyle. We are thrilled to introduce the fifth-generation Galaxy Active, which offers the best of Galaxy features in a tougher package."
