New details about the upcoming Galaxy Tab Active 3 tablet has appeared. This model, we recall, replaces the Galaxy Tab Active 2 released in 2017, and will retain the main feature of the device – the maximum degree of protection. Thus, the Galaxy Tab Active 3 will meet the requirements of the American military standard MIL-STD 810.
The hardware basis of the novelty is the Exynos 9810 SoC, the software platform is Android 10 out of the box. The amount of RAM will be 4 GB, the amount of built-in flash memory – 64 or 128 GB. Also in the configuration of the device is the main camera with a resolution of 13 megapixels and a front camera with a resolution of 5 megapixels, an 8-inch screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels, a battery with a capacity of 5050 mAh.
Galaxy Tab Active 3 will be released in two versions: with Wi-Fi, and also with an LTE modem. As an accessory, Samsung will offer a proprietary S Pen stylus. The price of the tablet has not yet been announced, but the official premiere is already very soon.

Earlier last week, we heard about Samsung’s upcoming tablet namely Galaxy Tab Active 3 as it appeared on Bluetooth SIG listing. While we just heard about the tablet, it looks like Samsung is trying to push the device aggressively in order to launch it as soon as possible. The Tab Active 3 has then surfaced on the WiFi Alliance. The new development suggests that the device is inching closer to its official release. Here’s what the certification reveals about the product.
We already know that there are three known Galaxy Tab Active 3 models and well, all of them have appeared on WiFi Alliance. We’re talking about the model numbers – SM-T570, SM-T575, and SM-T577. It looks like the key differentiating factor is the connectivity. The SM-T570 will support WiFi connectivity while the SM-T575 will offer an LTE option. Lastly, the T577 variant might be the 5G version of the tablet.
As expected, all three models will run on the latest Android 10 operating system with One UI 2.x skin on top. Apart from this, the listing also seems to have confirmed that the WiFi 6 is not going to be there. Lastly, the device uses Bluetooth 5.0 for connectivity. The WiFi Alliance listing doesn’t really talk about the core internals and that’s the same case with this one as well.
Considering the tablet has now appeared on WiFi Alliance, it is safe to assume that the official launch is inching closer. If that’s the case, then we should see more key leaks surfacing on the web. As of now, there is no concrete information on the price range. Some reports do suggest the introductory price of at least $500.
