Here is a good news for the Samsung Galaxy Xcover lineup fans, a new phone is soon expected to show up in this line. For those who are not familiar with this lineup, these phones are designed for harsh environments and comes with strong dust and water resistance and a strong rugged body with US military standard MIL-STD 810G toughness. The last phone under this series, the Samsung Galaxy Xcover 3 came out back in April, 2015 and now we have a new phone to look for. To find out more about this upcoming phone including the Samsung Galaxy Xcover 4 Dubai price, keep reading.
As mentioned earlier, this is a rugged phone with some strong protection like IP68 certified for dust and water resistance, MIL-STD 810G US Military Standard guarantee to make sure it can withstand low and high temperature, salt water, mist, mechanical shocks and drops. There are physical buttons for navigation and users will be able to use it even when wearing gloves. Users will get a decent 5-inch screen but it will be showing 1280 x 720 pixels resolution instead of full HD which is surprising nowadays for a mid-range phone. It’s quite fat at 9.7mm and weighs about 172g. It will be interesting to see how it feels in hand after the Samsung Galaxy Xcover release date UAE.
Under the hood, the Samsung Galaxy Xcover 4 will be packing a quad-core processor clocked at 1.4GHz. It will be paired with 2GB of RAM and 16GB built-in storage. We don’t know much about the exact model of the processor yet but it will be good enough if you are not planning to run power-hungry apps and games. There is a microSD card slot as well which sounds good as 16GB built-in storage is just not good enough nowadays. Users will get the latest Android 7.0 Nougat right away which means no need to wait for an update after the Samsung Galaxy Xcover release date UAE. There is the OnePlus 3T and Asus Zenfone 3 if you are looking for a more powerful phone. These are almost in the same pricing range as the Samsung Galaxy Xcover 4 Dubai price.
There is not much to look forward to here. The rear camera will be a 13-megapixel one while the front camera is a 5-megapixel one. This is definitely not a phone for selfie lovers but if you are not too dependent on your phone for taking pictures, it’s definitely enough to get the job done. There is a 2800mAh for powering up the phone which is slightly disappointing as most of the phones nowadays are trying to include minimum 3000mAh battery if not more. There is the CAT S30 and CAT S60 if you are interested to check out some more rugged phones before the Samsung Galaxy Xcover release date UAE is officially here.
From what we have learned so far, the Samsung Galaxy Xcover 4 will be available for about AED 1100 when it’s here. It’s expected to be available sometimes in April, 2017.
