A while back @OnLeaks posted renders of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Xcover Pro 2. Except that may not be what the phone is called – the Google Play Console does indeed list a device named “xcoverpro2”, but it gives its marketing name as “Galaxy Xcover6 Pro ”.
The SM-G736U may be marketed as the Samsung Galaxy Xcover6 Pro
Whatever the final name, the rugged phone will be powered by a Snapdragon 778G as we saw in Geekbench results. The unit that did the test had 6GB of RAM and that seems to be the only option, at least judging by the GPC data.
The renders suggested that the new Xcover will have a 6.56 ”display, which will have 1,080 x 2,408px resolution (that works out to 20: 9 aspect ratio). This will be an AMOLED panel, if rumors are to be believed.
As seen in the renders, the selfie camera is notched into the display and there are some sturdy bezels around the perimeter. As is tradition, there will be a function button with a red accent on the side.
The phone will arrive with Android 12 (with One UI 4.x) out of the box sometimes later this year, the exact launch date is unclear. The model number is SM-G736U, so we’ll keep an eye on it in future leaks.
