Unexpectedly early announcement of the phone

Samsung’s smartphones currently all have the same design. They have a screen without a bezel, a top camera with a notch or a punch hole, a flat glass or plastic back, and metal or plastic borders. They also lack a number of features that were formerly commonplace, such as headphone connectors and replaceable batteries. The XCover family of smartphones combines such characteristics with a robust build, making them the antithesis of contemporary smartphone design in many aspects. The Samsung Galaxy XCover 6 Pro is out now, and it appears to be a reliable product for individuals who need their phone to be durable.

Since initially showing up on the Google Play Console and later having its whole spec sheet leaked, the gadget has been well-known for a few weeks. The Galaxy Tab Active4 Pro, a rugged tablet, and the gadget were both scheduled to be unveiled on July 13th, but it appears that leaks persuaded Samsung to make the announcement a few weeks earlier.

The screen’s actual panel is rather good, despite its larger-than-normal bezels. Although it is 6.6″ in size, TFT—not OLED—and has a 120Hz refresh rate, FHD+ resolution, and Gorilla Glass Victus+ protection, it is still quite reliable. We have MIL-STD-810H certification as well as IP68 certification for water and dust resistance when it comes to protection. In other words, this phone can resist practically everything.

Internally, we have a “6nm octa-core SoC,” which is a purposefully ambiguous description that leaves us speculating about what silicon it’ll actually utilise. Additionally, the microSD card slot allows for 128GB of extra storage and 6GB of RAM. A 50MP primary back sensor and an 8MP ultra-wide lens make up the camera system, while a 13MP lens is used for the front camera.

Then there is the unusual material. Contrary to the majority of contemporary phones, the ribbed plastic rear of this device really houses a replaceable battery. Even though it has a 4,050 mAh cell and isn’t the largest battery in town, the fact that it is detachable is impressive in and of itself. Users may dock and fast charge their devices using a series of POGO charging pins in addition to the USB Type-C charging socket.

Beginning in July, the Galaxy XCover 6 Pro will be available for purchase in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. Later on, it will also be available in additional areas. Soon, we should have more accurate information on pricing and availability.
