5G, a 50MP main camera, 120Hz refresh rate, and a lot more
Gone are the days when rugged handsets were all about their ruggedness, packing modest internals into often grotesque bodies to survive the toughest conditions possible without breaking the bank.
If the 128GB internal storage + 6GB RAM combination doesn’t impress you much, the 6.6-inch screen almost looks too good on paper by mid-end rugged standards, with not only FHD+ resolution but “up to” 120Hz refresh rate support as well.
The same goes for the 50MP primary shooter equipped with f/1.8 aperture, but predictably enough, the rest of the rear-facing camera setup is not that great, including just an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor and a flashlight.
While not exactly record-breakingly large, the 4,050mAh battery will certainly prove to be a key selling point, allowing users to easily remove and replace it when traveling or working outside of a “normal” office.
A couple of downsides and an unknown price point
But that’s only if you’re not very familiar with rugged designs and the heft typically added by making a phone withstand water immersion, as well as dust, dirt, sand, extreme humidity, altitude, salt fog, vibration, and yes, even the occasional drop on a hard surface.
With all that in mind, we’re sure you’ll find it relatively easy to overlook not only the aforementioned weight number but also the 9.9mm waist and the outdated notch, the latter of which feels like a shocking downgrade from the trendy hole punch of the Galaxy XCover Pro.
But the recommended price point is actually still under wraps, as is the commercial release date and… pretty much everything about the Galaxy Tab Active 4 Pro also confirmed to be announced on July 13.
