The Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 3, the “military-grade” 8-inch Android tablet, is now available in the US starting at $489.99.
It was announced globally back in September last year.
The Galaxy Tab Active 3 is a rugged 8-inch Android tablet that is designed primarily for manufacturing, retail, and construction sites. It comes with IP68 water and dust resistance rating. The tablet has even passed tests against 23 environmental conditions like vibrations and high altitude, to meet the MIL-STD-810 military-grade standard. The tablet comes with an IP68 Pen stylus and a case that protects against drops of up to 1.5 meters (approx. 5 feet.)
Because it is designed for ‘rugged’ use, the tablet’s touchscreen can even be used when wearing work gloves, but not “extremely heavy-duty gloves or mittens.” It also has three physical navigation buttons at the front bottom of the tablet as well as two programmable buttons that can act as shortcuts to the apps of your choice.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 3 has a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, both optimized for scanning barcodes. The 5,050mAh battery is removable, and it will sell with either 64GB or 128GB of internal storage that can be expanded with microSD. The tablet currently shops with Android 10 but Samsung has already announced an upgrade to Android 11 will be available soon.
It starts at $489.99 for a Wi-Fi only version and $589.99 for the LTE-enabled tablet, available now on Samsung.com.
