The market for ultra-resistant or rugged tablets gains a new competitor with the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 3, a device with balanced hardware that offers an 8-inch screen, the processor of the Samsung Galaxy S9 (Exynos 9810) and everything you need to use the tablet in any condition.

High resistance mobiles are not the most popular on the market, but they do have their audience, especially those looking for a device capable of withstanding the hard work. And this also applies to tablets, as Samsung understands it with its new Active Tab 3, a device that has everything you need to succeed among professionals and those looking for a tablet to take with them anywhere. And without losing leading-edge features compared to a ‘normal’ tablet.

Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 3

The Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 3 is a tablet with more than decent hardware for this type of device, including the processor: Samsung has chosen a high-performance SoC for more than a couple of years in the market, the Exynos 9810. This SoC is accompanied by just 3 GB of RAM and two versions: 64 and 128 GB; always with the option to extend the storage with SD cards up to 1 TB.

The tablet itself is resistant, both to dust and water (IP68) and to scratches and bumps. Even so, Samsung adds a case with which to multiply that resistance. And without losing editing and writing capabilities since the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 3 includes an S Pen. This facilitates its professional use since it comes prepared to become a terminal for product administration. And with an unusual detail today: its 5,050 mAh battery is easily replaceable by the user. Not only that: the tablet can work in battery-free mode so that this is not damaged if the device is always plugged into the power.
