Samsung wants to trademark Galaxy Tab4 Active, water-resistant tablet in the works?
Judging by Samsung's current flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S5, its ruggedized variation, the Galaxy S5 Active, and the Galaxy S4 Active from last year, such a tablet would probably come with an IP67 certification. This means that if you immerse it in a depth of 1m of water for up to 30 minutes, it will live to tell the tale.
Sony already has several dust- and water-resistant tablets – the Xperia Tablet Z and the Xperia Z2 Tablet. However, these are high-end slates, unlike the mid-range Galaxy Tab4 trio of devices that Samsung unveiled almost two months ago. Of course, Samsung could up the game of its rumored water-resistant slate and throw a more potent silicon inside the Tab4 Active.
All in all, we would take this information with a big pinch of salt, as it's highly unlikely.
Still, could Samsung's trademark application for the Galaxy Tab4 Active actually hold water? Will it be water-resistant? Only time will tell. What's your opinion on the matter?
