Back in August, Samsung announced the rugged version of its flagship device, the Galaxy S8 Active. The firm has now launched an extremely rugged tablet that can take a lot of abuse. Having MIL-STD-810 certification, the tablet can "survive excessive pressure, temperatures, environments, vibration, and drops". The tab also offers 1.2m anti-shock inbox protective cover and IP68 water, and dust resistance.
Galaxy Tab Active2 is powered by an Exynos 7870 processor and packs 3GB of RAM along with 16GB of internal storage, which is expandable up to 256GB through a microSD card. It has an 8MP rear camera and a 5MP front-facing shooter. The tablet offers an 8-inch display with a resolution of 1,280 x 800 pixels, which can also be used with gloved and wet hands.
The device packs a removable 4,450mAh battery, which supports reverse charging, meaning it can charge other devices. Moreover, it supports the S Pen, features a fingerprint sensor, has a USB type-C port, and comes with Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box.
The tablet will become available for purchase in select markets this month. The price of the device is not yet confirmed but it is expected to come around $500.
