Samsung Electronics today introduced the Galaxy Tab Active2, a new business-rugged tablet built for business.
The Galaxy Tab Active2 offers a wide range of features such as biometrics integration, multi-window screens and S Pen capabilities that function in extreme working conditions, improving worker productivity and flexibility.
Samsung Mobile worked with IBM Maximo to integrate the capabilities of Asset Management and Work Management. By combining IBM's asset management capabilities with device features such as biometrics integration, multi-window screens and S Pen capabilities, tasks such as equipment inspection and maintenance will be easier and more efficient for workers, regardless of the complexity of the environment they are working in.
Additionally, the Galaxy Tab Active2 has professional-grade vehicle mounting options for commercial fleets and law enforcement through partnerships with Gamber-Johnson and RamMounts. Other collaborations bring new features such as explosion protection for oil, gas, pharmaceutical and chemical industries with support from ECOM Instruments, portable barcode scanning from Koamtac, hand straps from Otterbox and rugged vehicle and portable keyboards from iKey.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab Active2 is MIL-STD-810 certified, ensuring that the tablet is durable enough to survive excessive pressure, temperatures, environments, vibration and drops. The tablet offers business-rugged features such as a 1.2m anti-shock inbox protective cover, IP68 water and dust resistance and better display touch mode for gloved and wet touch.
The S Pen brings precise input options with 4096 pressure level and air command feature. It also features IP68 water and dust resistance for use in outdoor environments.
The tablet is equipped with a 5MP camera with 8MP Auto Focus. A new fingerprint scanner offers security authentication, and the facial recognition feature is a convenient option for unlocking the device using just one hand. When paired with new gyroscope and geomagnetic sensors, employees will also benefit from a wide range of augmented reality (AR) capabilities. It also contains NFC feature, LTE connectivity, easy power charging with efficient battery control of multiple devices and additional data signal pins for optional keyboard connection.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab Active2 will be available from October 2017 in select markets.
