Samsung introduced a rugged Android powered phone last year that they dubbed the Galaxy Xcover. It was a decent Android phone with a good set of specs, and now it seems that Samsung is getting ready to launch its successor at Mobile World Congress 2013. The guys at SAMMOBILE got their hands on specifications and a leaked shot of the Galaxy Xcover 2 (codename “Skomer”).
Let’s take a quick look at the detailed specs:
- 4-inch, 480 x 800 TFT WVGA display
- Running Jelly Bean, although it’s unclear if it’s 4.1 or 4.2
- 1700 mAh battery
- 5MP rear camera
- 0.3MP front-facing camera
- 4GB internal storage + microSD slot (up to 32GB)
- dust and water-resistant
The device will come in two colors, Titan Gray and Black/Red. It’s unclear what kind of processor the Xcover 2 will bring to the table, but we’re not expecting a top of the line CPU. No word on pricing or a specific release date, so we’ll have to wait for MWC in February.
With that being said, do you think Samsung’s rugged Android phone would be a good choice for you? Should Samsung avoid making ruggedized devices? Be sure to leave your thoughts in the comments below!
