Korean tech giant Samsung has announced the Galaxy XCover Pro, a rugged smartphone aimed at the enterprise market. Expected to be used by construction workers, nurses, delivery persons and flight attendants, it comes with tough specs like an IP68 rating, Military Standard 810 certification and a claimed 1.5 meter drop resistance. The mid-range Android runs on an Exynos 9611 chip, 4GB RAM, up to 512GB storage with a micro-SD card and a replaceable 4,050 mAh battery. The 6.3-inch FHD+ screen works with gloves, and the phone sports a dual rear camera setup, along with a fingerprint sensor in the side-mounted power button. It supports NFC, third-party enterprise tools like credit card readers and even has user-programmable buttons. The smartphone costs $499, and Samsung says it will sell the XCover Pro to individual users as well.
