Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2's leaked specs suggest it's not an entry-level tablet


Samsung has one more ace under its sleeve for those looking to buy a decent Android tablet for outdoor use. That ace is called Galaxy Tab Active 2, a rugged tablet that we've learned about for the first time back in June. However, it was only last week that we've been able to dig a few details about the slate and find out that it will soon be introduced.

Since information about its specs was scarce, we're happy to report that the Galaxy Tab Active 2 made it to GFXBench, the app that stores benchmark results for old, new and unreleased smartphones and tablet.

According to the listing, the Galaxy Tab Active 2 has much better specs than what it was previously reported. For example, instead of the said 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor and 1.5GB RAM, the slate will pack a 1.5GHz octa-core Exynos 7870 processor and 3GB RAM.

Also, the rugged tablet is expected to feature 16GB expandable storage and an 8-inch display with 1280 x 800 pixels resolution. An 8-megapixel camera will be available on the back side, while the front side will include a secondary 5-megapixel selfie camera.

Finally, the Galaxy Tab Active 2 will run Android 7.1.1 Nougat right out of the box. Hopefully, Samsung will price it competitively enough to make it a good deal, but we have our doubts.
