Today Announcement finally unveiling Samsung’s new rugged phone, the Galaxy XCover6 Pro, puts an end to a massive flow of leaked information about the device. Unlike some of its older brothers, the XCover6Pro is designed specifically for businesses, but that’s not to say consumers can’t buy one if they want to. First and foremost, the Samsung Galaxy XCover6 Pro is built to last. After all, its robust features are its main selling point, which is why the South Korean handset manufacturer has made no compromises. The phone is designed to withstand extreme working conditions, so it features a durable MIL-STD0810H certified design, IP68 rating and Corning Gorilla Glass Victus+.
All of the above should provide the phone with some protection from severe weather, drops, and other hazards. The Galaxy XCover6 Pro also allows users to adjust the touch sensitivity to increase the responsiveness of the screen, while improvements for touch in wet environments make the phone easier to use during those rainy days.
As for the business part, Samsung has added two programmable keys to the Galaxy XCover6 Pro, which can be customized to perform different functions depending on the company. In addition, the phone can be used as an enterprise-level barcode scanner via Knox Capture or as a walkie-talkie via its push-to-talk, which now has a much louder speaker volume than the previous Galaxy XCover Pro smartphone.
The icing on the cake is the wide variety of Samsung and partner accessories that come with the XCover6 Pro, including Smart Case, POGO/multi-device/battery chargers, charging cradles, belt clips and PTT headsets. Please note, however, that the POGO charger and the additional replaceable battery are sold separately.
