Just recently, we’ve seen the massive Samsung Galaxy XCover 5 leak that leaves nothing for imagination. A reliable source confirmed its front and back design as well as all the specifications. Now, the company has officially unveiled its next rugged smartphone – Galaxy XCover 5 that is designed to handle demanding jobs while meeting the needs of an increasingly mobile workforce.
The Galaxy XCover 5 now becomes the latest rugged smartphone offering from Samsung. This device equips various features to handle demanding jobs and activities. Its IP68 rating ensures users for its dust and water resistance as it can be submerged in over a meter of water for longer than 30 minutes with complete protection against dust.
On the other hand, the enhanced shock absorption enables XCover 5 to withstand drops of up to 1.5 meters. Moreover, due to the requirements of health and safety precautions, professionals in this field must wear gloves, so the “glove touch” function increases touch sensitivity, allowing users to operate the device while wearing gloves for quick and convenient use.
Samsung Galaxy XCover 5 sports a 5.3-inch HD+ TFT display and equips a single 16-megapixel (f/1.8 aperture) rear camera, plus a 5-megapixel (f/2.2 aperture) front camera for selfies. Under the hood, it has an Exynos 850 processor supported by 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Furthermore, it packs a 3000mAh battery that can be recharged with a 15W fast charger. And, it comes with Android 11 OS out of the box.
Integration with the Samsung Partner Ecosystem:
The Galaxy XCover 5 is also enhanced with unique partner-enabled mobility solutions for use in a wide range of business scenarios, including the ability to integrate the walkie-talkie function in Microsoft Teams.
The push-to-talk function allows users to stay in contact with anyone throughout the day with a simple push of a button, making it easier for colleagues to communicate with one another.
You can also configure which apps can be launched with the XCover Key – a customized feature that offers single-touch access to your most frequently used apps such as LED flashlights, emergency calls, or maps.
The Galaxy XCover 5 is also packed full of other convenient features that will aid users’ work and outdoor activities. The LED flashlight on the rear of the phone next to the camera can be used as a torchlight, assisting your vision in darker environments.
The Galaxy XCover 5 also comes equipped with an NFC chip allowing the phone to be used as a wallet or transportation card, making it ideal for professionals who use public transport to commute to work.
The new Galaxy XCover 5 will be available starting March 2021, including but not limited to select markets in Asia, Europe, and Latin America, with availability expanding to other regions at a later date. However, the company has not revealed the pricing of this device but it is expected to come with a price tag of around €299 in Europe.
