Rugged Galaxy Xcover 5 bags another approval, Dual-SIM confirmed


Last updated: February 26th, 2021 at 15:06 UTC+02:00

Samsung’s next rugged phone for 2021 is one step closer to going live. In case you missed it, the phone’s going to hit the shelves as the Galaxy Xcover 5, and it might also become the company’s first rugged device to boast 5G connectivity. It remains to be seen if that will indeed be the case, but for now, the LTE variant is apparently being readied for market release.

Just like any other phone that’s getting prepared for the masses, the Galaxy Xcover 5 will have to go through a few regulatory processes before it can go sale. Today, the Galaxy Xcover 5 got approved by Bluetooth where it was revealed that the device supports Bluetooth 5.

Two variants of the same phone were approved by Bluetooth today. There’s the standard LTE-enabled Galaxy Xcover 5 bearing model number SM-G525F, as well as the dual-SIM variant with model number SM-G525F_DS. No other specifications were revealed by the regulatory agency but previous leaks have given us a fairly comprehensive picture of what the next rugged phone will have in store for customers.

It’s been a little over a year since the Galaxy Xcover Pro was released, and we’re approaching the two-year mark since the Galaxy Xcover 4s made its debut in 2019. With that being said, Samsung is keeping quiet about its release plans for the Galaxy Xcover 5 but the rugged phone might be just around the corner.
