That Samsung is preparing to enterThe light of the old smartphone of the ancient, but a small family of secure devices XCover, is already known. The name of the novelty is also known - contrary to expectations that the Samsung Galaxy XCover 4 will be replaced by the XCover 5, the device has received the name Samsung Galaxy XCover 4s.
According to the Dutch store Centralpoint, the device will be sold for 299 euros (excluding VAT). The date of the start of sales for the past week has changed - it was June 3, now it is the 11th.

The design of the Samsung Galaxy XCover 4s is nothingrevolutionary did not appear. The smartphone looks almost the same as its predecessor 2 years ago. Surprisingly, the screen also did not change the geometry - again 5 inches, the same resolution of 720x1280 pixels.
The chipset, of course, is newer - Samsung Exynos 7885. RAM capacity - 3 GB. The drive is 32 GB, there is a slot for microSD cards. There is support for Bluetooth 5.0 and even NFC. The headphone jack is standard. The traditional button on the side, to which you can assign a function of your choice, is available.
Perhaps the most notable innovation is the camera. Samsung Galaxy XCover 4s got a 16 megapixel main camera with f / 1.7 aperture. She is lonely, but at least not as sad as her predecessor. Also equipped with artificial intelligence. Self-camera with outstanding performance does not shine - 5 MP, f / 2.2.
The battery is also moderate - 2800 mAh, but removable, now it is a rarity. Modern charging port, USB Type-C.
The device is certified to IP68 and meets the military standard of impact resistance, so it must not be afraid of water, and withstand flights from 120 cm.
It seems, soundly, but somehow not very impressive. Not for three hundred euros - for sure.
