That's surprising considering a recent report indicated that consumers in South Korea, one of the firm's most profitable markets, weren't overly impressed with the Galaxy S9, with most opting to retain their Galaxy S8 instead of upgrading.

It launched its first commercially available gigabit-enabled 4G service in early 2017. The Wi-Fi-only Tab Active2 is officially priced at $420 stateside, while an LTE-enabled variant allowing workers in the field to always stay connected fetches an additional Benjamin.


Samsung likes to cover all the bases and cater to every conceivable need Android users might have, be them fans of ultra-high-end phones, cheaper mid-rangers, mainstream tablets, kid-friendly slates or even ruggedized, easy-to-carry tabs focused on managing "essential business tasks". While customers may prefer sleek looking mobiles and tablets made from slabs of glass, many businesses require devices which can withstand a healthy dose of abuse from harsh working conditions. Resulting in a device that is usable in various conditions including those where excessive pressure or temperature variations are present, as well as being protected from water and dust encounters.

Its more common numbers include an 8-inch display along with a 1920 x 1080 resolution.


The device has a 12MP Camera and LED Flash and Internal storage of 64GB which can be expandable upto 256GB via a MicroSD card. Since the tablet is targeted at businesses, it also comes with all the Samsung Knox features to enable IT administrators to customize the device for their work requirements. Samsung and its USA carrier partners are finally upgrading the Galaxy S8 to Android 8.0 Oreo, a version of the OS that came out six months ago.
