And here it is, a rugged Samsung Galaxy TabActive3. Samsung are true to themselves, updating the line every three years. Samsung Galaxy Tab Active2 appeared in 2017, Samsung Galaxy Tab Active in 2014, Samsung Galaxy Tab Active4 in 2023.
Newcomer Samsung Galaxy Tab Active3]], according to itsin fact, it is an extensive development of the Active2 model. More powerful hardware and cooler cameras, more memory and higher screen resolution. Appearance ... Slight cosmetic changes, nothing more.
Let's start with protection. The declared class is IP68. The device must withstand immersion to a depth of no more than one and a half meters for no longer than 30 minutes. Please note - we are talking only about clean and fresh water. In short, it will not suffer from the rain, it will most likely survive accidental falls into puddles. But swimming with him in the sea or taking mud baths clearly should not be.
Declared MIL-STD-810H Compliance(note - revision H, not G, like most Chinese smartphones). Alas, as usual, without specifying the list of passed tests. The only thing that is said about falls from a height of up to one and a half meters, and even then only if the tablet is in a standard case.
Iron. Chipset Exynos 9 Series 9810 two years ago. Bad? Okay. This is the flagship chipset, in particular, it was used in the Samsung Galaxy S9. Well, it's a little outdated, energy efficiency is lower than the current ones. So what? The power is still impressive, under 350 thousand AnTuTu points.
Memory. 4 GB of RAM, 64 or 128 GB of constant. There is support for Micro-SD memory cards. Fine.
Eight-inch PLS-screen, resolution 1200 × 1920 (283 ppi). Gloves can also be used. You can - and a stylus. The stylus is included (and, by the way, it is also IP68 water and dust resistant).
Medium battery - 5050 mAh. Two interesting points. First, the battery is replaceable. This, of course, is not a "hot swap", as some have managed to write in their news. But it is understood that, if necessary, the battery can be easily replaced and there is no need to contact the repairmen for this. Secondly, the tablet has a special “No Battery Mode” - powering directly from the outlet, bypassing the battery.
Single cameras. 13MP rear, 5MP front. Of course, nothing is clear about quality.
NFC, Wi-Fi number 6, USB Type-C, gyroscope, fingerprint scanner. Everything is. Only 5G is not.
On sale from day to day. I found prices for Holland - € 489 (₽43,800, $ 571). And for Italy - € 529 (₽47400, $ 617). Both are for the 4 + 64 GB version. Whether the tablet will reach Russia is still unknown.
