We got the confirmation today that the Samsung SM-T570 series tablet that’s been leaking since July, is a new rugged Android tablet from Samsung.
As we had already leaked that this is an 8-inch tablet, it doesn’t come as a surprise then that this rugged tablet is called the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 3 (though spelled Active3, in keeping with Samsung’s tradition for rugged tablets) in today’s official Bluetooth certification. It will succeed the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active2 that was announced in October 2017.
The new Samsung Galaxy Tab Active3 was also shown to come as three slightly different models in today’s Bluetooth 5.0 certification, with these being the Wi-Fi only SM-T570 model, and two cellular SM-T575 and SM-T577 4G LTE models.
The first 8-inch Tab Active was widely available in retail stores around the world, but Samsung would shift the focus much more towards the enterprise market with the Active Tab2, even though they would continue to sell it for the consumer market through major retail stores too.
Samsung Galaxy Tab Active3 is an 8-inch rugged Android 10 tablet powered by the octa-core 1.79 GHz Samsung Exynos 9 9810 processor, with 4GB RAM, a 5050 mAh battery, Wi-Fi 6, NFC, S Pen, and fast charge support.
The 8-inch screen is very likely to feature a Full HD display, and as we showed you last week, the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active3 features three physical buttons on the bezel.
Samsung Galaxy Tab Active3 has passed through all the necessary regulatory bodies, and even some of the support pages for it have been published by Samsung already. So we can expect a launch of it sometime between September and October.
