A few days ago, Samsung unveiled their new Galaxy Tab Active 5 tablet. Designed for enterprise and industrial use, this rugged tablet comes with features like a durable body and a removable battery. At first, Samsung didn’t disclose the price and availability, but they have now announced it. So let’s take a closer look at the details.
Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 5 Price
The base model of the Galaxy Tab Active 5, featuring LTE connectivity, starts at $548.99 in the US. The one with the 5G connectivity will be available at a higher price point. The tablet will arrive in US stores before the end of March 2024.
As aforementioned, the Galaxy Tab Active 5 is a tough tablet built for harsh environments. It’s MIL-STD-810H certified and comes with a protective case that can survive drops from 12 meters. It’s also dustproof, waterproof with an IP68 rating and scratch-resistant with the Gorilla Glass 5.
There is an 8-inch FHD display on the front with a 120Hz refresh rate. For photos, you get a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP selfie camera.
The performance side of things is handled by the Exynos 1380 chipset with 6GB/8GB RAM and 128GB/256GB storage. That latter is expandable via a microSD card. While Samsung has made a name for itself with timely software upgrades, the Tab Active 5 comes with older Android 12, though an upgrade is expected.
Keeping the lights on is a 5,050mAh battery, and there is a side fingerprint scanner for security. There is also a dedicated Active key on the side and connectivity features include dual SIM, 5G, pogo pin, USB-C, and Wi-Fi 6.
