It has been 3 three years from now Samsung launched the original Galaxy Tab Active (Rugged Tablet), while finally we have rumors that Samsung is working on the New 2nd generation Galaxy Tab Active tablet. A well-known website for Samsung News, Sammobile wrote the story and suggested that Samsung may launch next generation Galaxy Tab Active only in Europe and South America. Sammobile revealed about 2 Galaxy Tab Active models named SM-T390 and SM-T395. While it also notes that SM-T390 is a Wifi-only variant and SM-T395 is an LTE + Wifi variant.
Galaxy Tab Active is a rugged tablet like first gen Galaxy Tab Active designed for individuals with an active lifestyle. It’s an 8-inch Android Tablet and would possibly based upon the Samsung Galaxy Tab A latest tablet like we saw in the 1st Gen. While we may see Android Nougat as OS on it.
The original model had come with mostly mid-range specs of that time like it has Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor, 16GB Internal Storage, 1.5GB RAM, a 3.1MP rear camera, 4,550 mAh battery which keeps the tablet alive for 8-10 hours of general usage. So, the new one would also be a midrange tablet.
Like the original Galaxy Tab Active it is targeted towards industrial and business use. We can expect the features like shock proof, dust and water resistance. It can survive a drop from 1.2 meters, a 30 minutes water submersion as well as can withstand extreme cold and hot temperatures. We may also see the option of pogo pin charging that’s why users could also be able to place it in a docking in their delivery van and get it charged or connected. While what other things to consider are NFC, GPS, GLONASS, C Pen, and barcode scanner.
However, it could prove as rare as all rugged tablets are for the consumer market, so that’s why we may see 2nd generation Active Tab later in additional markets too.
