The Galaxy Tab Active3 is targeted at users who are likely to use the tablet externally in difficult or extreme conditions. Therefore, the company has packed features such as ‘touch sensitivity’ which supports touch input even when the user is wearing gloves.
With the tablet, you get an official IP68 rating. The S Pen in the Galaxy Tab Active3 is also IP68 certified. The S Pen, according to the company, is ideal for signing and managing complex documents in complex environments.
