Announcement. Samsung Galaxy XCover6 Pro is a powerful rugged smartphone with a small (but replaceable) battery

Formally the announcement of a secure Samsung smartphoneGalaxy XCover6 Pro was supposed to take place only in mid-July. In fact, Samsung itself published all the information about the device on its German website today. Almost all. The prices are just not enough.

So.Before us is a more or less classic “armored car”. We are talking about full protection against water and dust (class IP68) plus about compliance with the MIL-STD-810H standard. Unfortunately, no details other than a few general words are given. Therefore, it is difficult to say how tenacious and hardy the smartphone is. But the body is clearly reinforced. This is evidenced by a rather impressive weight - 235 grams, and not the smallest thickness - 9.9 mm.

The chipset is good. Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G.And there is support for 5G networks, and performance is on par. (The spread in AnTuTu for this chipset is large. But we are waiting for something in the range from 450 to 550 thousand points). Normal amount of memory. 6 GB operational, 128 GB permanent. Plus there is support for memory cards.

Screen suddenly with super high frequencyrefresh, up to 120 Hz. PLS-matrix, diagonal 6.6 ″ (105 cm²), resolution 1080 × 2408 (400 ppi). Gloved work is supported, but clarifies that gloves should not be too thick. When the screen is underwater, the screen sensor will not work.

Suddenly greedy with the battery.Its capacity is only 4050 mAh. But it is interchangeable, so you can, if necessary, carry a couple of spares with you. Charging is relatively fast - only 15 watts. Suddenly there is a POGO pin connector, which is proposed to be used for comfortable charging. Like, buy our docking stations, the best docking stations in the world!

The set of cameras is not particularly powerful. The front has a resolution of 13 MP. Rear - two pieces, 50 + 8 MP - main and wide-angle.

Other. They forgot to officially say about the fingerprint scanner. It looks like he's on the side. There is an NFC module. Type-C up to version 3.2 Gen1. And ultra-modern Wi-Fi - version 6E.

There is a standard audio output. An ultra-loud speaker is promised.

We are waiting for information about how much the Samsung Galaxy XCover6 Pro will cost. Intuition tells us that it will not seem enough to us.
