New phone, 5.8-inch, 1440 x 2960 pixel display protected flat and raised margin, while the "durable metal frame" makes a shockproof device. In General, Active S8 will be a bit taller, wider, thicker and heavier than conventional C8 - not only because of its rugged construction, but also because it packs more (4000 mAh) battery.
