Although only the front is no longer a secret, it is obvious that the Samsung Galaxy XCover 5 is not a huge step forward in terms of design when compared to its predecessor. One can easily notice the thick borders and bezels, a red button on the left side, as well as the power and volume buttons on the right.

Samsung will soon bring a new rugged handset to the market and it will obviously join the company's existing lineup of Android phones designed for use in tough environments. Known as the Samsung Galaxy XCover 5 and labeled SM-G525F, this smartphone has now surfaced online in what appears to be the first official photo to leak so far. 

The aforementioned photo shows the Galaxy XCover 5 from the front and reveals rather large bezels and borders, a red button on the left side, and the power & volume buttons on the right side. The list of technical specs and features that has been public for a while includes the Exynos 850 processor, 4/64 GB of memory and storage, 5/16 MP front/rear cameras, a 5.3-inch display with 1,600 x 900 pixels, as well as a 3,000 mAh battery with 15 W charging. 

Sadly, it looks like the SM-G525F does not feature 5G connectivity. However, this leaves room for at least a 5G model to be released later this year. In addition to all the above, we should also add that this handset will hit the market with Android 11 in tow (with One UI 3.0 on top, of course). We will get back to it as soon as it becomes official, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
