Galaxy Xcover Pro launched with 4,050 mAh removable battery, IP68 certification


Last updated: January 8th, 2020 at 08:32 UTC+02:00

Samsung has silently launched the Galaxy Xcover Pro, its latest device in the Xcover series of rugged smartphones, in Finland. The Xcover Pro will be available in the country from January 31 with a price tag of €499. According to the folks over at WinFuture, the Xcover Pro should also hit other European markets, like Germany, sometime in February.

The Galaxy Xcover Pro is the first phone in the series that uses modern design elements like a 20:9 punch hole display with small bezels and an ultra-wide rear camera. It also has a feature that has gone missing on smartphones these past couple of years: A removable battery despite the IP68 water and dust resistance and MIL-STD-810 ruggedness certification. As with other Xcover phones, this one comes with two programmable buttons (one on the left, and one on the top) in addition to the volume and power buttons; the power button also doubles up as a fingerprint reader.

The Xcover Pro has a 6.3-inch LCD display with a resolution 2400×1080 pixels that can be used with wet hands and gloves and is powered by the octa-core Exynos 9611 SoC, which also powers the new Galaxy A51. The battery capacity is 4,050 mAh and 15W fast charging is supported. There’s 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a dual rear camera setup consisting of 25MP wide and 8MP ultra-wide cameras, and a 13MP front-facing camera. Unlike other recently launched Galaxy phones, the Xcover Pro runs Android Pie but should be eligible for the Android 10 update.
