Samsung’s Rugged Galaxy Tab Active3 Was Built To Mil-Spec Standards

As capable as mobile electronics have become, they do have their Achilles heel: fragility in the field. For no matter how powerful you make the processor, it does little good to anyone if you can’t take the device out of the office. Well-versed in the world of Mil-Spec tech, Samsung is back with an update to their Galaxy Tab Active.

Now in its third iteration, the Galaxy Tab Active series is the outdoorsman’s answer to the popular Galaxy Tab platform. Like its predecessors, the Active3 comes Mil-Spec certified with IP68 dust- and water-resistance, so it’s ready to perform in the most extreme environments. However, for version three, it gains enhanced shock absorption, meaning this rugged tablet can now withstand drops of up to 1.5 meters. But the biggest updates come in the form of its user-interface. Featuring a far denser 1,920 x 1,080 pixel display, the image quality is better than ever. And with a powerful Exynos 9810 processor, 4GB RAM, and 128GB internal storage, the Tab Active3 boasts performance to match its package. Finally, it now supports “No Battery Mode,” which switches off the battery for plugged-in power. Though pricing hasn’t been announced yet, it’ll go on sale in Europe and Asia soon.
