Samsung Galaxy Xcover 5 now getting Android 13 and One UI 5.0
Samsung has been at breakneck speeds with its Android 13 and One UI 5.0 update. After its successor got the update back in mid-November, the Xcover 5 has now started receiving an Android 13, One UI 5.0 OTA.
The pack is available for the SM-G525F model in a dozen or so European countries. The OTA update also includes Android security fixes from November 2022.
The Galaxy X Cover 5 is a fairly unremarkable addition to Samsung’s robust lineup that came out last year. Its spotlight feature is of course the ability to survive a 1.5m drop, as well as over 30 minutes submerged in 1m of water from an encounter with dust and sand. It is IP68 and MIL-STD810H rated.
In addition to that, it has a 5.3-inch HD+ LCD, Exynos 850 chipset with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, a 3,000mAh user-replaceable battery, and a 16MP main camera that can double as an enterprise-grade barcode scanner .
