Samsung Announces Galaxy Tab Active

Samsung’s big announcements for IFA are through, the Note 4 and Note Edge have been made official, but this is Samsung we’re talking about. They are never quite done releasing new products. This morning Samsung made the Galaxy Tab Active a thing, a mid-range tablet with a rugged, water resistant build.

The 8-inch device is definitely a mid-range device packing mediocre specifications. The real story here is that the device is more resistant to drops, dust, and water.The design is reminiscent of the Galaxy S5 Active, and the Galaxy Tab 4. Interestingly the plastic back is removable as well as the battery. While that’s normal for Samsung phones, that’s not something we see on tablets very often. Based on the specifications of this device, this is pretty much a rugged Galaxy Tab 4 8″. Pricing or availability have not been announced yet, but variants with Wi-Fi and LTE have. The full specifications list is below.
