This long-awaited rugged handset is finally official. It comes with Nougat on board, using a low-end Exynos 7570 processor, next to 2 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage. The Xcover 4 is compliant with the MIL-STD 810G and IP68 standards.

After quite a few rumors and leaks, the latest rugged Galaxy handset is finally official. Most of its specs and features confirm what we heard already, so the Galaxy Xcover 4 might not have any surprises to offer.

According to Samsung Germany, these are the specs and features of the new Galaxy Xcover 4:

  • Processor: Exynos 7 Quad 7570
  • Memory/Storage: 2 GB RAM; 16 GB internal storage and microSD support
  • Display: 4.99-inch multitouch with 1,280X720 pixels
  • Cameras: 5 MP front, 13 MP back
  • Connectivity: 4G LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, micro-USB
  • Operating system: Android 7.0 Nougat
  • Battery: 2,800 mAh

The display of the Xcover 4 can be operated even when wearing gloves. This rugged handset is compliant with the MIL-STD 810G and the IP68 standards, thus being able to handle water and dust, as well as drops and scratches.

The price of this handset in Europe will be around $273 USD. Shipments are scheduled to begin next month. For now, there is no information on the US launch, but it should take place soon since the Galaxy Xcover 4 already visited the Federal Communications Commission.

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.
