Samsung’s first water proof tablet was unveiled yesterday at IFA 2014. The Galaxy Tab Active is one for the tough hand users. The build of the phone is pretty strong and as per Samsung it can bear upto 1.2 meter direct fall.

As the tablet is water and dust proof it is IP56 certified. But Galaxy Tab Active maybe tough but its not the prettiest tablet on the block. The device has a hard-core rugged look compared toits  slim and elegant counterparts like Xperia tablets. The phone has a thick shock proof rubber covering very much similar to Galaxy S5 Active.


The device is powered by quad-core 1.2 GHz processor and 1.5 GB of RAM. There is 16 GB on-board memory with option of micro-SD expanding. The device is running the latest Android Kitkat 4.4 with a battery back-up of approximately 10 hours through it 4,450 mAh batteries. The display is 8-inch TFT display with 800 x 1200 pixels resolution. The tab has LTE connectivity with features like C-Pen, Samsung KNOX, 1.2 MP front-facing camera, and a 3.1 MP rear camera.


Still no news on pricing or the market launch of the device is given by Samsung. But if phones often do fall off your hands than Galaxy Tab Active is one to watch out for.
