Rumors about the arrival of a new ruggedized Samsung smartphone have been circulating for weeks, but Samsung is now putting an end to these rumors by announcing the smartphone officially. The Samsung Galaxy XCover 6 Pro will be on the market in July, but we don’t have any information about a Dutch or Belgian release yet.
Most people know Samsung from the high-end Galaxy S series or the popular mid-range Galaxy A series. However, the South Korean manufacturer also markets robust smartphones in the XCover series. Samsung has now announced the latest rugged smartphone under the name Galaxy Xcover 6 Pro. The smartphone has, among other things, an extra sturdy housing and a replaceable battery.
The Samsung Galaxy XCover 6 Pro has a 6.6-inch TFT screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, a Snapdragon 778G processor with 5G support, 6GB RAM, 128GB storage space that you can expand with a microSD card, a 4050mAh battery, a 13MP selfie camera and a dual rear camera with a 50MP main lens and an 8MP wide-angle lens. The housing is waterproof (IP68) and the fingerprint scanner is located in the on/off button.
Samsung is launching the Galaxy XCover 6 Pro in several continents, including Europe. However, we do not yet know in which European countries the smartphone will be available. The XCover 6 Pro has already been spotted on the German website, but the smartphone cannot yet be ordered and we do not have a suggested retail price yet. The smartphone is expected to cost around 600 euros and the XCover 6 Pro will be available from mid-July.
