Today the company launched its rugged version of the Galaxy Tab, especially for those who work on the field a lot. The follow up to 2017’s Galaxy Tab Active 2 has finally arrived. Aptly named the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 3, the device brings in a lot of improvements than its predecessor with enhanced durability on top. Keep on reading to find out more about the Galaxy Tab Active 3, including the information about its price and availability in Nepal.
Galaxy Tab Active 3 Overview
Let’s start with the durability of the device as it is the major attraction factor of the device. The Tab Active 3 has a rubberized shell covering. This gives the device MIL-STD-810H compliance. Meaning, it can easily survive drops from up to 1.2 meters. Furthermore, it also has IP68 water and dust resistance rating. And if that wasn’t enough, the Tab Active 3 can be fitted with a rugged case that increases its durability height to 1.5 meters. Finally, the cherry-on-top is that its S-Pen also comes with an IP68 rating.
The device has an 8.0-inch IPS LCD screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The screen can be operated with gloved hands. However, to do that, you’ll have to turn on the touch sensitivity option in the settings.
Cameras are nothing to flex about on this device. It sports a 5MP selfie camera and a 13MP rear camera with auto-focus.
Under the hood, the Tab Active 3 is equipped with the Exynos 9810 SoC. It is the same chipset that we had seen on the Note 10 Lite. The chipset is complemented by 4GB of RAM and 128GB storage. Other features include NFC, Wi-Fi 6, GPS, Glonass, Beidou, and Galileo. Tab Active 3 will be available in both Wi-Fi and LTE versions.
The power system is pretty sleek too. It has a 5050mAh removable battery that can be charged with a USB-C cable. Or you can also charge it through the side-mounted POGO pins. Furthermore, it has a “No Battery” mode too. That means you can directly power the device from a power source without the battery.
