Galaxy Xcover 5 listed on Samsung New Zealand’s website?

Samsung has released new versions of the rugged Galaxy Xcover lineup in March every two years in the past, but it looks like the company isn't going to be waiting so long for the Galaxy Xcover 5. The Galaxy Xcover 4 was launched last year, and according to Google's search results, at least Samsung New Zealand did have a listing for the Galaxy Xcover 5 at some point. The link to the device fails to load so it's possible the listing has been removed sometime in the last couple of weeks, which might explain why Samsung hasn't yet made the Xcover 5 official.

Galaxy Xcover 5 in the works

This may not be the first sighting of a Galaxy Xcover 5. Leakster Roland Quandt had published an image of a rugged new Samsung phone at the beginning of March, saying that the device wasn't the Galaxy S9 Active. The device in the image had three LED flashes for the camera at the back, which is something we haven't yet seen on a Samsung device. None of the specs of the alleged Xcover 5 are known, either, but we can expect IP68 water and dust resistance and military grade ruggedness covering entry-level specs. Android 8.0 Oreo should also be on-board, that is if Samsung actually intends to launch the Xcover 5 in 2018.

Thanks for the tip!
