Samsung has quietly announced the Samsung Galaxy XCover Pro. The device is coming to the United States as a mid-range offering with a price tag of $499. The main highlight of the phone is that it will have a removable battery.
Samsung says that it is working with Microsoft and Verizon to make this rugged phone available. The Galaxy XCover Pro is intended to be used by industrial or field workers. It is powered by a 4,050mAh removable battery, so you don’t really have to worry about running out of battery juice. What’s more, the phone supports 15W fast charging.
Samsung Galaxy XCover Pro Specs
The Samsung Galaxy XCover Pro comes with pretty mid-range specifications. It sports a 6.3-inch display with a resolution of 2220 x 1080 pixels. It has an aspect ratio of 20:9. According to Samsung, you can use the display even with gloves on.
The phone is powered by a 2GHz octa-core Exynos 9611 chipset. It enjoys 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The internal storage can be expanded by up to 512GB via a microSD card. The device will run Android 10 and Samsung’s One UI 2.0 out-of-the-box.
The Galaxy XCover Pro comes with a dual-rear camera setup comprising a 25MP shooter and an 8MP shooter. It has a 13MP front-facing camera.
Meanwhile, starting last year, Samsung focused on the Galaxy A series as its main mid-range line. We saw phones ranging from the Samsung Galaxy A10 to the Galaxy A90. In fact, the company also quietly unveiled the Galaxy A01, a phone with a 5.7-inch infinity-V display.
We are also already looking forward to the long list of phones on that series for 2020. Already, we have information on some of them. The Samsung Galaxy A11, A31, and A41 will reportedly come with 64GB base storage. The Galaxy A51 will come with a 5MP macro camera. We saw the Samsung Galaxy A71 in a leaked render. It will reportedly use the Exynos 980 chipset and have 128GB storage. Concerning the Galaxy A80, there is the word that it might support S-Pen stylus.
The Samsung Galaxy XCover Pro is basically a mid-range phone too, but Samsung seems to direct it at a specific market. The rugged phone will retail for $499. It will be available in the United States through Verizon within the first half of 2020.
