Earlier this week, Samsung unveiled its newest smartphone, the Galaxy XCover Pro.
This new device is being marketed as "optimized for a variety of industries including retail, healthcare, logistics, and manufacturing." What this means is that it targets frontline workers with its specs.
The phone comes with a size that is slightly larger than the Galaxy S10+. Its frame, however, comes with a rugged material that allows for drops of up to 1.5 meters and comes with IP68 rating for dust and water resistance.
The Galaxy XCover Pro has a 6.2-inch screen with Full HD+ resolution. Samsung has also made this screen accessible by wet fingers and gloves. From within, the device is powered by a Samsung Exynos chip with 4GB of RAM, 64GB onboard storage, and expandable memory of up to 512GB.
There is a 25-megapixel main camera and a 13-megapixel front-facing camera. Other features include a 4,050mAh battery, NFC, a side fingerprint reader, and a couple of programmable shortcut buttons. One of these buttons can be used for Push To Talk (PTT) feature. It runs Android 10 OS out of the box.
Samsung says the device will be launching on Verizon in the first half of the year for $500.
