The Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2 has been 0fficiailly launched by the company. The tablet, which comes with a rugged body design, has been announced by Samsung in Netherlands.
The new Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2 has a rugged body with military-standard MIL-STD-810 certification, which means that it is strong enough to survive extreme pressures, temperatures, climates, shocks and traps.
Just like its predecessor, this one too comes with a 1.2-meter anti-shock protective cover. It also has an IP68 rating for water and dust resistance and comes with better display technology for use with gloves and wet fingers.
The rumours related to the tablet, which is intended for the business use, were making rounds since August this year. Recently, the device appeared on GFXBench benchmarking site and its user manual revealed that the tablet will come with a removable back cover.
As of the specifications, the device comes with an 8-inch LCD display with screen resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels, which is quite disappointing. It is powered by Exynos 7880 chipset clocked at 1.6GHz, along with 3GB of RAM.
In terms of internal storage, the tablet comes with just 16GB of onboard memory, but there is a microSD card slot, allowing users to expand storage capacity.
There is an 8-megapixel rear facing camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. The company is also offering S Pen with the device and also supports Bixby (Home and Voice).
On the front, there are three buttons — Recent Apps, Home and Back. The home button has an integrated fingerprint sensor, which, as per the company, is a newly improved version.
It will be available in two options — Wi-Fi only and 4G. The Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2 4G will be available in Balck colour in the Netherlands by the end of November, at a price of €500.
While it will be first available in Europe and Latin America, the tablet is expected to be made available in Asia and North America.
