    The Galaxy Xcover 5 is now finally available for purchase in Mexico. The phone was initially unveiled six months ago, but it remains just as relevant as before due to a lack of competition. After all, there aren't that many rugged phone options out there, which makes the Galaxy Xcover 5 somewhat of a rare breed.

    The Galaxy Xcover 5 is distributed in Mexico by Ingram Micro, Grupo CVA, Dusof, and Airbus SLC. Customers are looking at a price tag of MXN 6,799 ($341).

    The model offered in Mexico has 4GB of RAM and 64GB of built-in storage expandable via microSD. Other than that, the Galaxy Xcover 5 is powered by the Exynos 850 chipset and has a relatively small — by today's flagship standards — TFT display measuring 5.3 inches.

    One of the last phones to have a user-replaceable battery

    Samsung's latest rugged phone has a programmable physical button, walkie-talkie functionality and boasts IP68 water and dust resistance along with a MIL-STD-810H certificate. The Galaxy Xcover 5 has Glove Touch functionality to increase display sensitivity when wearing heavy gloves, and of course, it ships with Samsung Knox for increased security.

    One of the Galaxy Xcover 5's most unusual characteristics is the user-replaceable battery. This is a great feature, especially for a rugged phone, as it allows users to carry extra batteries and keep the phone running for as long as they need to without having to recharge it. It's a great feature to have for a rugged phone that'll probably be used out in the wild. Not many smartphones today have a user-replaceable battery or a rugged body, so the Galaxy Xcover 5 a fairly unique smartphone in Mexico, Samsung or otherwise.
