Samsung surprised everyone with two new tough smartphones, even though everyone’s attention is on the Galaxy S24 flagships that will be released later this month. Introducing the new Galaxy Tab Active5 tablet and smartphone, the Galaxy XCover7. With a 5G connection, NFC for cashless transactions, Samsung Knox Vault for data security, and a programmable button for easy access in inclement weather, the pair ships pre-installed with Android 14.
Samsung Galaxy XCover7
The Samsung Galaxy XCover7 boasts a 6.6″ Full HD+ LCD with enhanced touch sensitivity, making it ideal for use in damp conditions and with gloves up to 2 mm thick. We only know that the Galaxy XCover7 has an SoC constructed on 6nm technology with an octa-core CPU since Samsung usually keeps the details of their phone components to themselves.
The front camera captures 5 MP stills, while the lone camera on the rear features a 50 MP sensor. The phone has 128 GB of storage, 6 GB of RAM, and microSD card support. Dolby Atmos audio and a 3.5 mm audio connector are two more notable features.
One of the main features of the Galaxy XCover7 is its long-lasting construction, meeting IP68 and MIL-STD-810H specifications. A Gorilla Glass Victus+ guards the screen, and the 4,050 mAh battery can be taken out.
When the phone is put into the USB-C connector, it may operate without a battery thanks to its No Battery Mode. This feature makes it very handy to use in places like automobiles and kiosks where the device is always being charged. In this manner, the cell is protected and the phone doesn’t produce more heat.
Samsung Galaxy Tab Active5
Like the smartphone, the tablet has an 8″ LCD with a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz and heightened touch sensitivity. A 13 MP rear camera and a 5 MP front camera are present. It has a 5 nm chipset that is not identified.
Both of the memory combinations—6/128 GB and 8/256 GB—have a microSD slot that can hold an additional 1 TB of memory. The S Pen is compatible with the IP68-certified tablet, but it is not integrated into the slate itself; instead, it is housed in a separate protective shell.
Additionally, the Tab Active5 has a MIL-STD-810H0 rating, meaning it can endure vibrations, drops, severe altitude, humidity, immersion, salt fog, and dust. On top of the panel, though, is the somewhat antiquated Gorilla Glass 5.
The home key features an integrated fingerprint scanner, while the bottom bezel has physical keys. Thanks to the removable and 5,050 mAh battery, the tablet can function without the cell.
Starting this month, the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active5 and Galaxy XCover7 will be accessible. The cost has not yet been determined.
