[Update: More images!] Galaxy Tab Active 2 could come with an Exynos 7880 CPU, 3GB of RAM

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.

Things get a lot more interesting when you take a look under the hood, however. The Galaxy Tab Active 2 allegedly sports an 8-inch TFT LCD display (1,280 x 800 pixels), a 1.6GHz Exynos 7880 CPU, 3GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable storage.

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.

Still waiting for a worthy successor to the galaxy note pro, with at least the same specs as the Note 8 !! And please, not with eMMc storage ! ( that’s what slowed down the responsiveness and performance of the Tab S3 ) but with at least 64 gb UFS 2.1 sorage…

16GB in 2017 – really?! This is an Active model, which are not compromises! great design but very disappointing specs – if they are to be believed. With S Pen support and Bixby, there is not gonna be much internal space left for apps
