The post has recently passed through the FCC and along with the product document is a diagram showing the design of the phone from the back, which corresponds to the display of these leaked images.

However this image does not come from the official Samsung, but this image has been leaked by users who have earned this phone as a preliminary test unit. On the back of this phone clearly visible words Galaxy S8 Active.
One of the images shows this device comes with a 4,000mAh battery. While the display of the phone screen shows other useful details like the software version, even though the top of the image is covered.

Galaxy S8 Active supports USB Type C and has a 3.5mm audio port on the bottom and is on the left of the charging port. Also at the bottom there is a single speaker.

Just as it was described in previous leaks, Galaxy S8 Active has signs of the device series. For the design, bumper-style frames appear to protect the rugged corner and composite materials used for the back of the phone. This is different from the back of glass used on Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 +.
The dual camera module remains the same, just as the fingerprint sensor is facing backwards. The phone comes in black, which is likely to be the only color offered by Samsung and AT & T (exclusive operator of the device).

Snapdragon 835, the first 10nm Qualcomm SoC equipped with eight Kryo 280 cores, has a maximum frequency of 2.45GHz, and the Adreno 540 GPU. If the router offers hardware with an identical base clock, then this chip will have energy efficiency like Snapdragon 835 in everyday use , Although its performance is stronger under heavy loads.

Snapdragon 836 itself recently reported to have improved performance compared to Snapdragon 835, similar to how Snapdragon 821 was upgraded from Snapdragon 820 last year.
NASA: Drones Voice Is Very Disturbing
If you are familiar with the drone, surely you know what sound the unmanned drone sound produced. At first glance, drone sound when operated like a sound on a computer. It's not too hard, but for NASA, the sound of drones is considered very disturbing.

According to research conducted by the US space agency to 38 unmanned vehicle subjects, the results show that drones are unmanned vehicles that have the most annoying sound.

As reported by Digital Trends, this research is done by playing the sound of 38 subjects recording, ranging from cars, drones, vans, to trucks. NASA then gave the ratings of vehicles rated as disturbing to the most disturbing.

"What we found was that the sound of this unmanned drone produced a systematic noise that would be bigger, compared to car sounds, when we compared it with the same volume," said NASA research engineer Andrew Christian.

Nevertheless, Christian hopes that this research does not inhibit the presence of drones for any field, not just for goods delivery only. We do not mean that, "he said.

According to him, drone sound is not good to hear and humans are not accustomed to hear the sound of this kind of vehicle. However, in the next 30 years, it can change.

"I think everyone has different views, and at the airport, people might think the aircraft sounds very noisy, but not for those who live near the runway, they're used to it," he said.

Intel Says that Qualcomm Monopolized the Market
Qualcomm is unremittingly sued by various companies, and this time it is Intel's reporter, who calls Qualcomm abusing its position as the ruler of the mobile processor market.

Qualcomm called fixing licensing rates for technology usage too high, at least five times more expensive. While they offer a cheaper price for the purchase of chips by mobile phone manufacturers.

Intel also asked the International Trade Commission (ITC) to investigate Qualcomm over the tariffs on the use of that license is too high. In a statement, Intel calls itself a victim of the monopoly practice of mobile chips.
Qualcomm itself calls Intel infringes his patents on the use of LTE modems that exist in a number of devices made by Apple. Qualcomm also accused Apple of deliberately making the modem work more slowly than made by Intel.

Ironically, Intel itself had previously been in the position of perpetrators of monopolistic practices. Intel has been fined for $ 1.4 billion in 2014 because of the practice of PC chip monopoly over AMD, as quoted by Engadget.
