We’ve known that Samsung has been working on a successor to the ruggedized Galaxy Tab Active for a while, and now esteemed leaker Roland Quandt has shared some information about the so-called Galaxy Tab Active 2.

There isn’t a huge difference between the Galaxy Tab Active and Galaxy Tab Active 2 in the design department, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some subtle differences; the latter’s more rounded and features cleaner buttons, for example.

Other notable specifications include an 8MP rear-facing camera, a 5MP front-facing shooter, Bluetooth 4.2, a fingerprint reader embedded in the physical home button, LTE capabilities (SM-T395), an S Pen and a 4,450mAh removable battery.
