We have come a long way when it comes to phones. The OEMs have developed it to be an inevitable thing in the life of men. In the past, people used phones to call or message someone. But now, smartphones have become a multipurpose machine.
You know Samsung tops the list of global smartphone market share. Although their mid-range and budget offerings do not defy the competition, they could secure the pole position with the release of both the S and Note series. The company has now come up with a new smartphone.
Samsung Galaxy XCover FieldPro Rugged Phone Went Live with MIL-STD-810G Build
No matter how far we have gone in the smartphone segment, the fragility of them hasn’t been improved much. Almost all the phones easily break after a fall from a few feet height. If you are field personnel or a technician, you don’t want that to happen to your handsets. That’s when Samsung Galaxy XCover FieldPro Rugged Phone gains significance.
The smartphone passed 21 rigorous durability tests. Meaning, it can withstand the usual wear and tear and occasional drops. The IP68 rating ensures its safety from liquid damages. Moreover, you will also get a 4500 mAh removable battery. The emergency request and push to talk buttons are programmable to your liking.
As for the specifications, you shouldn’t expect a ravishing design on a rugged phone. It features a 5.1-inch QHD display with 2560 x 1440 pixels resolution. Under the hood, you will get Exynos 9810 chipset coupled with 4 GB of RAM. The 64 GB internal storage can further be expanded up to 512 GB using an external SD card.
For the optics, the Samsung Galaxy XCover FieldPro flaunts a 12-MP sensor on the back with triple LED flashlights and dual aperture. Upfront, you will also get an 8-MP selfie shooter. Of course, you are not getting anything extravagant here.
In case you are not aware, Google already launched Android 10. However, for some unknown reasons, Samsung only ships the device with Android Oreo. And, you can expect an upgrade to the latest version in a short timespan. Moreover, the phone will also receive security updates for up to three years.
Samsung Galaxy XCover FieldPro has all the sensors and connectivity options you expect from a typical smartphone. As said earlier, they launched it with field personnel in mind so that they won’t have financial damages by accidentally dropping their phones.
The company hasn’t uttered anything about the pricing and availability of the phone yet. What do you think? How much is it going to be?
