A computer with the right tools can be helpful or indispensable, especially for longer photo shoots or trips. Extreme outdoor photography/videography not only requires more robust photo/video equipment but also equally robust IT devices. With the Galaxy Tab Active4 Pro, Samsung has now introduced such a rugged tablet, which is primarily aimed at people working outdoors (construction sites, service technology, field service, blue light organizations, etc.), but also some photo and Filmmakers should be interesting.
The Galaxy Tab Active 4 Pro is not only robust to withstand demanding work environments but also impresses with its slim and light body with a thickness of 10.1 mm and a weight of 674 g. The weight is 833 g including the protective inbox and S Pen.
Equipped with Corning Gorilla Glass 5, the Galaxy Tab Active4 Pro outperforms other chemically strengthened glasses in terms of scratch and mar resistance. It can withstand falls from up to 1 meter with the included protective case even up to 1.2 m (based on internal lab testing). As an additional layer of protection, the Galaxy Tab Active 4 Pro and its integrated S Pen are IP68 resistant to dust and water. Protection class IP68 means protection against permanent submersion at a water depth of 1.5 m for 30 minutes in clear water. No protection against salt water and other liquids, especially soapy water, alcohol, and/or heated liquid. (Resistant to dust, dirt, and sand.)
Even in harsh environments, the rugged android tablet withstands altitude, temperatures, vibrations, and humidity according to the military standard MIL-STD-810H. (MIL-STD-810H is a standardized test method developed by the US military.)
The Galaxy Tab Active4 Pro is also compatible with a range of Samsung and third-party accessories. From ergonomically designed cases with straps or stands to charging stations, attachable keyboard covers, and portable barcode scanners – the wide range of optional accessories for the Galaxy Tab Active 4 Pro ensures seamless integration into business workflows.
The Galaxy Tab Active4 Pro combines the best of Samsung’s software and powerful hardware. The intuitive One UI user interface enables a personalized experience, while the advanced octa-core processor ensures that employees stay connected and are productive thanks to fast processing speeds. The Galaxy Tab Active 4 Pro also offers expandable storage with an optional microSD card of up to 1 TB to store all important files locally on the device. With integrated Sub6 5G and Wi-Fi, users can rely on fast speeds and low latency.
For office tasks, the Galaxy Tab Active4 Pro can be easily connected to an external display via Samsung DeX or used in standalone mode to emulate a desktop interface on the tablet. Samsung’s security platform, Samsung Knox, also protects the Galaxy Tab Active 4 Pro with fully integrated hardware and software protections. It supports security updates and three operating system upgrades for up to five years.

Back in August this year, Doogee introduced the versatile S89 series, a pair of rugged phones with an RGB light effect on the back. But that’s not the only thing that makes the S89 series unique. This series comes with an enormous 12000 mAh battery with a 65W fast charger.
