    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.
