Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2 Announced With a Military Standard Body

Korean manufacturer Samsung has decided to revamp its Android Galaxy tablet series considering the reduced number of tablet users. The company has wrapped off its new Galaxy Tab Active 2, a successor to the Galaxy Tab Active, launched in September 2014, almost three years ago. What’s unique is that the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2 comes with a rugged body with military-standard MIL-STD-810 certification, which means it can survive in extreme conditions(pressure, IP68 water resistance, dust, temperature, shock protection for up to 1.2 meters or 3.9 feet drops, etc.).

The new Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2 takes a few cues and inspirations from the Samsung Note 8. The device features an 8-inch TFT LCD with a screen resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels and 480 nits of brightness. The display also features a high-sensitivity mode; we can use gloves on the tablet. It also has a Wacom digitizer, which makes it easy for the new stylus. The new fingerprint sensor is embedded in the physical home button.

Inside the hood, we will find an octa-core Exynos 7880 processor(featuring on Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A7 2017 ) clocked at 1.6 GHz paired with 3 GB of RAM and 16GB internal storage further expandable by a micro SD card up to 128GB. On the rear, it sports an 8 MP autofocus camera with LED flash, while a 5 MP camera is on the front. The device is powered by a 4,450 mAh battery, the same as the previous version. Connectivity includes NFC (Near Field Communications), LTE support, USB Type-C, Bluetooth, and dual-band Wi-Fi. While the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2 runs Android 7.1 Nougat, an Android 8.0 Oreo version is expected soon.

Finally, we talk about the new stylus. The Galaxy Active tab 2 features an S Pen inside with which you can write, draw, scribble, and use shortcuts. The back panel is detachable so the battery can be removed and charged to the attached devices. The new tablet is a visible focus for business individuals sporting POGO pins for connecting third-party accessories like barcode readers. Samsung also provides an SDK (Software Developmental Kit) for it. As expected, the device supports Bixby (the first Samsung tablet), limited to a card-based contextual self. Also, it features Bixby home voice functionality powered by Bixby Voice.

The new device is priced at €500. The device will be released for sale in the Netherlands in November but is expected to have an international release soon.
