Samsung finally announced the Galaxy Xcover 4

Back in 2015, Samsung launched their Xcover 3 handset, and it was marketed as a slim but robust Galaxy smartphone. That device with today’s standards looks very ridiculous, with IP67 rating and 2 200 mAh battery. That is why mainly Samsung decided to make the all-new Galaxy Xcover 4.

It has been almost 2 years since the last Xcover device was released from Samsung. This time with much more needed improvements, the company is bringing back the rugged series of Xcover.

The Galaxy Xcover 4 device features a 4.99-inch TFT HD display which is a considerable improvement. The cameras have also their own improvement. The rear one features a 13-megapixels, while the front one has 5-megapixel selfie-shooter. The battery’s power has increased and now it has 2 800 mAh, a slightly more than the previous 2 200 mAh. In the inside, the Xcover 4 is powered up by a 1.4 GHz quad-core processor coupled up with 2GB of RAM. The internal storage for now has 16GB, and a possibility to extend it to 32GB. Which is really surprising, the Xcover 4 will come with the Android 7.0 Nougat in it.

The device now also has an IP68 rating which now sounds familiar as for Samsung device. The toughness of the device is guaranteed by the US military standard MIL-STD 810G, which can mean that the phone can handle extreme temperatures. Here it may include solar radiation, salt and dust, harsh weather conditions and as well as mechanical shocks and vibrations. We may say that if you are sports type of guy, the Galaxy Xcover 4 is the real choice for you.

The device goes on sale in Europe for 259 euros starting from April this year. It is still not announced if the device will come in North America or any other region.
