Galaxy Tab Active 5 is now available for purchase in the USA

The Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 5 was released in a few markets last month. The Active series of tablets is not very popular among most general consumers. However, it has a specific niche of enterprise users. They continuously buy rugged tablets for durability purposes. The Galaxy Tab Active 5 5G is finally here in the USA after a year and a half of waiting for a new enterprise Samsung tablet.

The specifications do not look great on paper but have a separate user base. It’s very portable and almost the size of the iPad Mini. The Tab Active 5 5G has an 8″ LCD panel with a 1920*1200 resolution with a 120Hz refresh rate. It has slimmer bezels and is better to operate with one hand. It’s also lighter than the Galaxy Tab Active 4.

You can buy the Galaxy Tab Active 5 for $549 in the USA. For the Galaxy Tab Active 5 Pro, you get the IP68 certification and Military Standard (MIL-STD-810H) durability certifications. You can get it via the Samsung US official website or on Amazon. It packs the 8-core Exynos 1380 (5nm Samsung) chipset, which is about as powerful as the Snapdragon 778G.

The tablet starts with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage and has microSD card support. The S-Pen that comes with it is also IP68 certified. You get a 5050mAh battery, but that’s understandable, considering the tablet’s small size. It has support for POGO Charging. The battery is also user-replaceable, so battery woes aren’t much with this product.

There’s the No Battery Mode feature, and you can directly power the tablet via a cable without using the battery. The tablet runs Android 14 out of the box, which is currently the latest version of Android. You will get major Android updates for 4 years, security updates for five, and also one free year of the Samsung Knox features, the entire suite. You also get one year of additional warranty over the standard one-year warranty.

The Wi-Fi-only model for the Galaxy Tab Active 5 is $549, and if you want to go to the 5G variant, it goes to $659. These prices are incredibly high for the specs it offers, but the target user base is not performance-centric users.
