Interestingly, the Bluetooth SIG confirms the imminent arrival of the rugged phone from Samsung. Interestingly, Samsung is one of the few “mainstream” smartphone companies that bet on the rugged segment. We have a lot of “unconventional” phones from minor brands and even known names, but the Korean is one of the few companies making “regular” and “rugged” phones, although it’s limited to this particular lineup. The Galaxy XCover 6 Pro was arrive as a successor for the Galaxy XCover Pro that was revealed in 2020. Fans of the company’s rugged range had to wait a long time for a proper sequel, but it’s finally coming.
Unfortunately, the Bluetooth SIG certification does not bring much information about the handset. But if you care for technical aspects, here are the model numbers of the handset, probably regional numbers: SM-G736B, SM-G736B_DS, SM-G736U_NA_XAU, SM-G736U1_NA_XAA, and SM-G736W_NA_XAC.
Samsung Galaxy XCover6 Pro specifications
The upcoming Galaxy XCover 6 Pro was previously spotted on the Geekbench benchmark database and the Google Play Console database. The listing had already confirmed that the upcoming XCover smartphone will carry the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G processor. Furthermore, it will pack the Adreno 642L GPU, and 6 GB of RAM. The handset will also run Android 12 straight out of the box which is hardly a surprise. Samsung is, perhaps, the best Android OEM when comes to updates in 2022. The company will likely provide the latest One UI 4.1 straight out of the box.
Judging by the Google Play Console, the phone will have a Full HD+ resolution of 2,408 x 1,080 pixels, and 405 ppi pixel density. According to previous leaks, the phone will bring a 6.56-inch AMOLED screen, and we can expect a 90 Hz or 120 Hz of refresh rate. The device will get support for 4 years of Android OS upgrade, which is beyond any Android OEM provided right now. The device will measure 169.5 x 81.1 x 10.1 mm.
The Samsung Galaxy XCover 6 Pro will come with a dual-camera step and dual-tone LED flash. The handset will also have a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, 3.5 mm headphone jack, and a USB Type-C charging port.
