Samsung has announced its equivalent of the Motorola Defy, a decidedly rugged chap called the Galaxy Xcover. It’s built to absorb all sorts of punishment.
A press release from Samsung.de gives us the lowdown, and the Samsung Galaxy Xcover sounds like one tough dude.
The IP67-certified Samsung Galaxy Xcover is dust and dirt-resistant. You can dunk it in water up to one metre deep, and it’ll remain water-resistant for up to 30 minutes.
The scratch-resistant display measures 3.6in, and there’s a 3.2MP camera on the rear. On the OS side of things, it runs Android 2.3 (Gingerbread).
No word yet on the processor, however. That’ll probably determine where the Samsung Galaxy Xcover stands on the smartphone ladder; dual-core face-puncher or modest muscle-man.
The Samsung Galaxy Xcover is expected to land in Germany in October. No word on a UK release just yet.
