Samsung’s got a new rugged phone in the works and this is what it looks likeApril 7, 2022
A lot of phones these days tend to focus a lot on the design and the incorporation of luxurious-feeling materials like metal and glass, and we can totally appreciate it, but at the same time this has left many phones a bit too fragile for our liking.
If you want a phone you can toss around and not worry about scratching or cracking, then maybe Samsung could have something that could interest you. According to a recent set of renders shared by @OnLeaks and Zoutons.ae, they have published images of Samsung’s upcoming new rugged smartphone, the Galaxy XCover Pro 2.
The Galaxy XCover is not Samsung’s first attempt at making rugged phones as they have done this several times over the years, but the Galaxy XCover Pro 2 will be its latest model. The leaked specs suggests that the phone could come with a flat 6.56-inch display and will feature dual rear-facing cameras, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Under the hood, the rumors are claiming that the Exynos 1280 will be powering the handset, meaning that durability will be the primary focus of the phone and not necessarily its performance. It will also run on Android 12 out of the box. We’re not sure what kind of durability or rugged features the phone will have, so we’ll have to wait for the official announcement to find out.
