Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 3 presented: rugged tablet for all cases

Galaxy Tab Active 3

With the Galaxy Tab Active 3, Samsung has presented a new generation of its rugged tablet for outdoor use, which is equipped with a new, more powerful CPU and better cameras. In contrast to practically all other tablets, you can even swap the battery here.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 3 is again equipped with an 8-inch display in 16:10 format, which offers a very high resolution of 1920×1200 pixels and is protected from knocks and scratches with Gorilla Glass.

As usual with the active tablets, there is a housing made of thick plastic that is certified to IP68 and the US military standard 810H.

Inside is the Samsung Exynos 9810 Octacore SoC, which with its eight cores achieves maximum clock rates of up to 2.7 gigahertz and was previously found in the Galaxy S10 smartphone, for example.

In addition, there are four gigabytes of RAM and 64 GB of internal flash memory with the option of expansion using a microSD card slot.

Improved cameras compared to the predecessor

The Galaxy Tab Active 3’s cameras have also been improved. The main sensor on the back has a resolution of 13 megapixels and offers an F / 1.9 aperture with a pixel edge length of 1.12 micrometers. Overall, it should therefore be one of the better cameras in the tablet market. On the front sits a very simple 5-megapixel camera with an F / 2.2 aperture, which even has autofocus.

The power supply is provided by a replaceable 5050mAh battery, which can be charged via fast charging via the USB Type-C port. Of course, if you wish, you can use LTE, ax-WLAN, Bluetooth, and NFC and there is also a 3.5 mm jack for headphones.

By the way, the Android 10 used here will again support Samsung DeX, which offers a PC-like interface when an external display is connected.

Samsung has equipped the Galaxy Tab Active 3 with an S-Pen stylus again, which is also IP68 certified and therefore resistant to water and dust. For corporate customers, there is also a large number of add-ons that the device can use to capture barcodes or perform other niche tasks.
