Galaxy Tab Active 3 ready to debut as Samsung continues rugged push


Last updated: September 12th, 2020 at 21:09 UTC+02:00

The Galaxy Tab Active 3 appears to be verging on release, with Samsung securing the final product certification necessary for retailing it internationally earlier this week. So, while we had only just learned about its existence several days back, things are already happening pretty fast. Following the discovery of its Bluetooth SIG attestation, we can now confirm this rugged lineup of Android tablets also secured approval from the Wi-Fi Alliance.

WFA certified all three known Galaxy Tab Active 3 models, also known as the SM-T570, SM-T575, and SM-T577. Public records suggest these will primarily differ in terms of wireless connectivity; the SM-T570 will only offer Wi-Fi support, whereas the SM-T575 will complement it with LTE functionality. Finally, the SM-T577 appears to be a 5G variant of the device. All three will run One UI 2.x based on Android 10 out of the box.

Samsung doubling down on rugged Android devices

The entire range was already rated for interoperability with Bluetooth 5.0 devices, though the latest Wi-Fi standard – 802.11ax, AKA Wi-Fi 6 – won’t be part of the package. Which isn’t that surprising seeing how Samsung only started implementing it into its latest flagships last year, starting with the Galaxy S10. There’s still no word on the pricing, but if the 2017 Galaxy Tab Active 2 family is any indication, expect an introductory price of at least $500.

In case you’re not in the loop, Samsung’s been growing increasingly bullish on rugged mobile devices in recent years, so much that it even sees them as crucial to solving Brexit. While the jury is still out on their ability to navigate European politics, you can also count on them to reach the U.S. store shelves in the following weeks. As a number of recently published FCC certificates would seem to suggest.
