On top of that, the phone’s specifications got shared, along with its release time frame. WinFuture managed to get ahold of quite a few details.
The Samsung Galaxy Xcover 5 details surface, including its specs & images
Let’s start with the design, shall we. The Samsung Galaxy Xcover 5 does look a bit dated, though that’s not surprising considering this is a rugged smartphone. Its bezels are quite thick, which is the main reason why it doesn’t look as modern as its siblings.
This phone can take a beating, though, that’s the main reason why those bezels are included. The phone also sports reinforced corners, which are easily noticeable. This black-colored phone comes with red accents, which seems to be a nice combination.
Samsung’s branding is placed on the back, and it’s quite subtle. The power / lock, volume up, and volume down buttons are on the right. On the left, there’s a fourth button which is red-colored. This could be a customizable key, we’ll see.
The phone will include a 5.3-inch display, and Samsung’s very own SoC
Now, in regards to specs. The device will feature a 5.3-inch HD+ (1480 x 720) display, says the source. That panel will be protected by the Gorilla Glass 6, and we’re looking at 310 ppi here.
Android 11 will come pre-installed, along with Samsung’s custom UI. The Samsung Exynos 850 64-bit octa-core processor is said to fuel the device, while you can expect to get 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of expandable storage.
A single 16-megapixel camera will sit on the back of the device. It will deliver an f/1.8 aperture lens, and will offer contrast detection. A single 5-megapixel camera (f/2.2 aperture) will sit on the phone’s front side.
The device will be IP68 certified for water and dust resistance, while it will also be shock proof. It will deliver two SIM card slots (2x nano SIM), and a separate microSD card slot for storage expansion.
The device will be able to scan your face using its front-facing camera. Bluetooth 5.0 will be a part of the package as well, as will an audio jack, and an NFC chip. You can clearly see a Type-C port in one of the images shared below.
A 3,000mAh battery will be included, while the phone will be quite compact
A 3,000mAh battery is mentioned by the source, and the same goes for 15W fast wired charging. This phone’s battery will also be replaceable, says the source.
The Samsung Galaxy Xcover 5 will measure 147.1 x 71.6 x 9.2mm, and weigh 172 grams. It will actually be quite compact, in comparison to most smartphones these days. The phone is expected to launch at some point this month.
