[Poll Results!] Do you agree that Samsung’s next flagship tablet should be water-resistant?
A shortcoming we pointed out in our Galaxy Tab S6 review, we feel that it’s about time that Samsung’s flagship tablets had an IP rating for dust and water resistance. Many of its flagship and mid-range smartphones already do, but the same does not hold true for its tablets.
Wouldn’t you like to use your tablet when you’re mindlessly floating in the pool? Or to not have that fear of dropping it when you’re using it in the bath? You wouldn’t know how much you’ve missed having this feature on a tablet once you start to take advantage of its benefits.
That can only be possible if Samsung decides to opt for an IP certification for its next flagship tablet, which is currently in development and may be launched as the Galaxy Tab S7 or Galaxy Tab S20.
In addition to providing additional value to customers, this functionality will also enable Samsung to get a leg up on the competition. Tablets generally don’t have an IP rating and that holds true for the Apple iPad as well. If Samsung were to lead the charge with this, it just might give a lot of people a reason to pick up a flagship Galaxy tablet instead.
