The forthcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2 has surfaced on GFXBench ahead of its launch. The latest ruggedized tablet from Samsung will run its mid-range in-house Exynos 7870 octa-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz matched with 3 GB of RAM. While modest by current smartphone standards, the upgrade sees both the CPU core count and RAM double that of its predecessor. As before it, however, its 8-inch display has a relatively low resolution 1280 x 800 pixels with support for just five simultaneous touch inputs. 

The device is the only tablet in Samsung’s Android range to be developed specifically for outdoor use and the original device could withstand a drop of up to 1.2 meters. It was also IP67 rated for dust and water resistance allowing it to stay submerged in up to 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes. You can expect at least this level of dust and water resistance in its sequel although it could ramp things up to an IP68 rating. Unfortunately, this could come at the cost of the removable battery, which was a signature feature of the original.

When the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2 launches in the coming weeks as expected, it will ship with Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
