Aiming to serve the business market in segments that demand tougher handsets, Samsung has officially unveiled the Galaxy XCover FieldPro, a device that stands out for its advanced hardware, based in part on the 2018 flagship Galaxy S9.
This resemblance can be seen by looking at the base hardware of the handset which is made up of an Exynos 9810 chipset, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. To complement the available space, the brand also delivered the possibility of using a microSD up to 512GB in it.
Another aspect that did not change was the cameras incorporated in the device, being offered an 8MP front sensor and a 12MP rear with the well-known double aperture seen in the main device of the brand.
Visually, it follows the standards of Xcover line devices, meaning that it has generous edges, physical buttons, and reinforcements that give it the toughness it needs to offer certifications like MIL-STD-810G, IP68 and shockproof.
In addition, the new device offers a 4,500 mAh battery with a removable capacity, allowing its users to carry spare units for immediate replacement, thus avoiding the obligation to charge power banks or chargers.
It has also been confirmed by the brand that it brings the already outdated Android Oreo but in return will feature guaranteed update to Android 10, however not revealing a date for it.
Pricing and availability have not been officially disclosed by the brand, and this information may possibly be provided to companies looking for the brand for direct purchase and is not directed to the common consumer market.
