Samsung’s next rugged smartphone should be just a couple of weeks away from hitting the shelves. The so-called Galaxy XCover 6 Pro was spotted online a couple of times in recent weeks, and now we’ve come across the official user manual for the device.
The user manual for the Galaxy XCover 6 Pro, i.e., the SM-G736B, confirms one of the main design characteristics that will differentiate this rugged phone from Samsung’s usual Galaxy devices. Namely, it has a back panel that pops out to reveal a user-removable battery.
Two programmable physical buttons, 3.5mm jack, and more
Other design details reconfirmed by the user manual include a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, dual-SIM capabilities, an Infinity-V display notch for the selfie camera, and two extra reprogrammable physical buttons: the Top key and the XCover key.
The Galaxy XCover 6 Pro has a USB-C port at the bottom and a 3.5mm headphone jack at the top. It features a dual rear-facing camera, and even though its back panel is removable, the phone boasts an NFC antenna.
The user manual doesn’t mention the exact version of Android or One UI the phone should ship with, but it details advanced features, including Samsung DeX.
The sketches attached to the user manual corroborate the design spotted in leaked renders. The Galaxy XCover 6 Pro was also approved by the FCC not long ago, and Samsung confirmed in an email that it’s getting ready to unveil its next rugged smartphone on July 13.
