Galaxy Xcover 5’s processor revealed in new benchmark


Last updated: January 26th, 2021 at 10:53 UTC+02:00

Samsung is working on yet another rugged smartphone in the Galaxy Xcover lineup. We had reported about the Galaxy Xcover 5 two months ago, stating that it will be the company’s first rugged smartphone with 5G. Now, traces of the device have been found, and its processor and software version has been revealed.

An upcoming smartphone from the South Korean tech giant with model number SM-G525F has been found in Geekbench’s database. The benchmark entry of the device reveals that it runs Android 11 and features the Exynos 850 processor. It will also feature 4GB of RAM. The device scored 182 points in the single-core CPU test and 1,125 points in the multi-core test. We can expect it to run Android 3.x out of the box.

The Exynos 850 processor was launched in mid-2020. It is an 8nm chipset with a 2GHz octa-core Cortex-A55 CPU and the Mali-G52 GPU. It supports Full HD+ displays, LPDDR4X RAM, a dual-camera setup with Full HD 30fps video recording. It also features a built-in 5G modem, LTE, GPS, Wi-Fi ac/b/g/n, and Bluetooth 5.0.

We can expect Samsung to launch the next Galaxy Xcover smartphone sometime this year with IP68 certification for dust and water resistance and an MIL-STD-810G-compliant design. The phone could be targeted towards people with an active lifestyle or those who work in the field.
