As we reported a couple of weeks ago, the Samsung Galaxy Xcover 5 rugged smartphone is now officially available in Malaysia. While it’s not a particularly high-end device, it’s definitely a very durable smartphone that can take some knocks here and there.
In fact, the Galaxy Xcover 5 can withstand drops up to 1.5m, and it has an IP68 dust and water resistance as well, which allows the phone to be submerged underwater up to 1.5m for as long as 30 minutes. It even comes with a Glove Touch feature to increase the touch sensitivity of the screen for those who need to operate the phone with gloves on.
Other specifications of the Galaxy Xcover 5 include a 5.3-inch HD+ screen, a Samsung Exynos 850 chipset paired with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, a 3,000mAh battery – it’s user-replaceable, by the way – a 16MP rear camera, a 5MP selfie shooter, and Android 11 out of the box.
However, given the rugged nature of the Galaxy Xcover 5, it appears to be only available to business customers; no pricing was given for the phone either. That’s right, unfortunately enough, regular consumers will not be able to purchase the Xcover 5.
Anyway, if you are a business customer interested in getting the Samsung Galaxy Xcover 5, you can get in touch with Samsung Malaysia right here to purchase the rugged smartphone.
