Samsung’s Xcover line of rugged smartphones is apparently due for a refresh this year, with the Galaxy Xcover Pro 2 already spotted in a benchmark database listing earlier this month.
And today the same device has been portrayed in detailed CAD-based renders. The source of the renders also claims the phone will have a 6.56 “screen (approximate size), an Infinity-V design at the front (that’s what Samsung calls a waterdrop notch), a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, and a 3.5 mm headphone jack.
The dimensions of the Galaxy Xcover Pro 2 are alleged to be 169.5 x 81.1 x 10.1 mm. This will be the first Xcover with 5G support, as the aforementioned benchmark run revealed that at the helm sits a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G SoC – although the source of today’s renders claims the Exynos 1280 will be used instead. The phone should inherit its predecessor’s removable battery either way.
Rumor has it the handset will hit the shelves this summer at the latest, and it should run Android 12 from day one.
