The extremely durable Samsung Galaxy Tab Active which was introduced for the first time back in September last year is ready to make India its home, even as the tablet is all geared up to be launched in the country soon. This news comes right from the company’s mouth, and it has also revealed that the price of this tablet will be set somewhere around the Rs 52000 mark.
That’s a pretty steep asking amount, but the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active does offer some really good durability features to its customers. For one, it has the IP67 certification for dust and water resistance, and moreover, it even comes enclosed inside an anti-shock covering which helps it survive drops from up to 1.2 meters.
The Galaxy Tab Active bears an 8-inch 1280 x 800 pixel monitor that is of the TFT LCD type, and not of the Super AMOLED type which other high-end offerings from the South Korean manufacturer come equipped with. A 1.2GHz quad core processor fuels its operations, taking assistance from 1.5GB worth of RAM.
This Samsung tablet offers a 3.1MP main camera which sits pretty on its rear surface, and a 1.2MP front snapper for video calling and selfies. There’s 16GB of storage onboard the device, apart from a microSD card slot which supports an additional 64GB.
