Samsung has now added a new rugged tablet to its lineup. The Korean electronics giant is calling it the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2. The tablet is currently available only in Netherlands, but Samsung plans to introduce it in its other European markets soon.
The Samsung Tab Active 2 is a part of the company’s range of rugged electronics. Recently, Samsung announced its Galaxy S8 Active in the US. Just like the Galaxy S8 Active, this new tablet also comes with military standard MIL-STD 810G certification. Additionally, the display on the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2 is capable of accepting touches even when you have your gloves on. The tablet comes with IP68 water and dust proof certification.
Design-wise, the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2 shares a lot in common with the S8 Active. Both devices, have shock absorbing bumps on their four corners. It helps impact the military grade shock protection to the tablet. In terms of specifications, Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2 sports an 8-inch HD (1,280 x 720p) TFT display. Underneath the hood, the Galaxy Tab Active 2 is powered by an octa-core Exynos 7880 SoC and 3GB RAM. Besides, it rocks 16GB internal storage and up to 256GB external storage via MicroSD card.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2 comes with a 4,450mAh battery. Other features of the tablet include Bluetooth, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n and USB Type C port. One of the missing features in this tablet is the presence of a SIM slot. Samsung however, plans to introduce a tablet with voice calling facility in future. That said, the presence of an S-Pen and Bixby Voice Assistant are the two most exciting feature about this rugged tablet. The tablet is priced at EUR 500 ($590/Rs 38,900 approx.) in Netherlands.
