Samsung puts an end to leaks, announces Galaxy XCover 6 Pro officially

After leaking in full last night, the Galaxy XCover 6 Pro became official today. Samsung took the veil off its new rugged phone today and launched a device store page for the XCover 6 Pro in Germany. Needless to say, every bit of detail, save for pricing, is now known.

Samsung just confirmed that it wants to make the Galaxy XCover 6 Pro available to customers in select markets across Europe, Asia, and the Middle East in July. Previously, the company revealed a July 13 launch date for the XCover 6 Pro and the Tab Active 4 Pro, the latter of which is still M.I.A.

The phone popped up on Samsung Germany’s online store not long ago, but it is not yet available for purchase. Pricing details remain unknown, and rumors hint at a €600 price tag.

Better than the Galaxy A53?

The Galaxy XCover 6 Pro is shaping up to be a great package, especially for a rugged phone. It’s powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G chipset, which means it should be able to outperform Samsung’s fan-favorite mid-range device, i.e., the Galaxy A53.

Samsung’s new rugged phone has a decent camera setup but doesn’t have OLED display technology. Its bezels are thick, and the screen has an Infinity-V notch. But anyone who can look past these design details and doesn’t care too much about OLED will have a lot to gain from the Galaxy XCover 6 Pro.

The phone has a MIL-STD construction with an IP68 dust and water-resistance rating, but more importantly, it’s convenient. The user-removable battery allows for hot-swapping batteries to keep the phone going virtually non-stop, and the device has two programmable physical buttons.

Samsung should unveil more availability and pricing details soon. However, keep in mind that the Galaxy XCover 6 Pro is a device aimed at the enterprise market first and foremost. You might not be able to find it very easily, depending on your region.
