Samsung's new Galaxy Tab Active Pro is a rare beast – a rugged tablet with S Pen support
Rugged tablets are few and far between, but the new Galaxy Tab Active Pro is one of them. The device has been shrouded in mystery for a couple of months now, and though Samsung finally made it official in Germany, details about the specs are still scarce.

Samsung's Active lineup of mobile devices centers around durability. Being part of it, the new Galaxy Tab Active Pro bears an IP68 ingress rating, meaning its water- and dust-resistant, and it's also built to comply with the MIL-STD 810G US military standard, which means it's supposed to be able to survive drops from up to 1.2 m (3.9 ft) meters in height. That's likely possible due to the tablet's unique protective cover.

Samsung is keeping quiet on the specs of the Galaxy Tab Active Pro, but previous benchmarks suggest that the tablet will be powered by either a Snapdragon 710 or 712 chipset, have 4GB of RAM, and run Android Pie out of the box, as per SamMobile. It also features S Pen support to boot.

The new and rugged Galaxy tablet is launching in Germany on October 1. Being a rather niche device, the tablet is mostly aimed at businesses with employees who work in harsh environments. The Galaxy Tab Active Pro starts at €599 for the Wi-Fi only version and €679 for the LTE variant, with "four years" worth of software support being promised for both.

I was interested tell it said SD 710 or 712. For that price it should have had at least the SD 835.
