Announcement. Samsung Galaxy Xcover 5 - compact rugged smartphone for € 289

Yesterday, March 4, Samsung announced the release of a secure smartphone named Samsung Galaxy Xcover 5.

The smartphone has already appeared on sale in Belgium. Thanks to this, the price is known. € 289 (₽25700, $ 348).

We know the following about protection.The smartphone is protected from water and dust in accordance with IP68. Those. formally, you can drown in clean fresh water. Not deeper than one and a half meters, not more than 30 minutes. Samsung, however, formulated everything in a much more clumsy way. “… More than a meter for more than 30 minutes…” Perhaps translation errors from Korean into other languages.

There is MIL-STD-810H certification.As usual, no details are provided. It is reported that the smartphone was dropped from a meter and a half on a flat steel surface and that it survived. Survival when falling on other surfaces, of course, no one guarantees.

As a smartphone itself, the device is not particularlyinteresting. Budget chipset Exynos 850. Eight cores, just over a hundred thousand points in AnTuTu. 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of permanent memory. Support for memory cards is available.

Modest small screen. 5.3 ″, resolution 720 × 1480 (311 ppi). But the sensitivity is increased, you can work with gloves.

Surprisingly small battery, only 3000 mAh. But replaceable. Apparently, it can be easily replaced even in the field. Moderately fast charging is supported - 15W.

Cameras are single, 5 MP front, 16 MP rear. We do not expect miracles from them.

There is an NFC module, USB and Wi-Fi are correct - Type-C and 5 (ac), respectively.

LTE support, of course, is also there. But in what ranges the device is capable of working is not specified.

"The start of sales in Russia will be announced additionally."
