    1. Most likely, yes.
      Samsung is working towards making any of their phones running Andriod Nogaut (Andriod 7.0) daydream VR ready, so it will support VR. This includes the Galaxy S8, S8+, and Galaxy S8 active, which will all release with Andriod 7.0. Also, I currently use a Galaxy S7 active as my daily driver, and it’s running Andriod 7.0 (Not VR supported). This does show hope for the VR support in the future as they will be able to use this as a ‘test run’ for future development with the Galaxy S Active series.
      Sadly, not much was officially confirmed about the Galaxy S8 active compared to the S8 and S8+, so nothing is set in stone. We can hope that Samsung will please their customers and make it VR ready.
