Samsung announces Galaxy Xcover 4, release date set for April

While people are anxiously waiting for their latest 2017 flagship, Samsung, in the meantime has deemed it fit to target the mid-range segment with its latest product, the Galaxy Xcover 4.

With the device having been officially announced, the Xcover 4 will be available from April onwards for €259. The major selling point for the Galaxy Xcover 4 will be its rugged build targeting the adventurers and users who need a device that challenges the extremes.

Guaranteed by the US military standard MIL-STD 810G, Xcover 4 has an IP68 rating providing it with formidable water and dust protection. Furthermore, if the design is consistent with Samsung’s ‘Active’ variants, the presence of a plastic screen is expected. Talking about the screen, the device also supports ‘Glove Mode’, enabling you to use it in extreme weathers where the use of gloves is a no-brainer. Samsung has also opted for hardware buttons that provide solid tactile feedback over its traditional capacitive keys.

The Galaxy Xcover 4 has a 4.99-inch TFT display with a 1.4GHz quad-core processor underneath supported by 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage with further microSD card support. It is powered by a 2,800mAh battery and includes NFC support. Running on Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, the Xcover 4 features a 13-megapixel rear camera with integrated flash as well as a 5-megapixel front shooter.

While the device may be targeted for adventurers and probably even the U.S army, who switched from the OG Galaxy Note to the IPhone 6s, the device will most likely find itself in the hands of the users who have a tendency of dropping and destroying their devices due to their butter-fingers.
