Samsung has announced that its latest rugged tablet, the Galaxy Tab Active3, is now up for grabs in the US market. The latest Samsung offering is aimed at front-line workers and comes with features such as a military-grade build, enhanced touch sensitivity for usage with gloves, a replaceable battery, no battery mode, and wireless DeX experience to name a few. To recall, the tablet was originally announced back in September last year.

It comes with an IP68-certified S Pen as well

Starting with the build, the Galaxy Tab Active3 has an IP68-rated and MIL-STD-810H certified build and comes with a sturdy external shell that also houses an IP68-certified S Pen at the top. The device is touted to survive accidental drops from a height of up to 1.5 meters. Notably, it comes with a user-replaceable battery and can also work without a battery when plugged into a charging source. 

A promise of three major Android upgrades and five years of security updates

Connectivity is handled by Wi-Fi 6 with MIMO support, and there is also a programmable key for enabling features such as push-to-talk, scanning barcodes using the Knox capture feature, or to perform any other critical task in a jiffy. The Galaxy Tab Active3 is also touted to be Enterprise Edition-ready out of the box, which means it will receive one year of Knox Suite, three assured Android upgrades, and five years of security updates.
