Samsung unveils the new Galaxy XCover 5: A rugged smartphone

A Samsung yesterday revealed the new Galaxy XCover 5, a robust yet sophisticated device, designed to handle demanding jobs and respond to the needs of an increasingly mobile workforce. Designed for field and factory work, the Galaxy XCover 5 combines durability with comfort, in a product that is elegant and easy to hold, yet robust enough to withstand challenging work environments. It was developed to continue the current business mobility, with an improved tactile sensitivity to be used with gloves, in addition to bringing an easy-to-carry and replaceable battery, which guarantees productivity throughout the day.

“At Samsung, we are increasingly investing in technology that provides efficiency and durability for field and factory businesses as they become increasingly mobile,” disse Mark Notton, Senior Director do Mobile Product Portfolio, Samsung Electronics Europe. “The Galaxy XCover 5 is a device that responds to the challenges that field workers often face, from ensuring the protection of sensitive material, to ensuring lasting use in any environment. Whether on the floor of a factory or in conditions of extreme heat, rain or snow outside, the new smartphone keeps up with the demands of the job, while improving productivity and increasing cooperation, in order to make daily work easier and more efficient.”

Built for Tough Environments

The Galaxy XCover 5 is equipped with several features that allow you to handle demanding jobs and activities. Enhanced shock absorption allows the Galaxy XCover 5 to withstand drops of 1 meter, and has an IP68-rated dust and water resistance that means the device can be submerged in one meter of water for 30 minutes with complete protection against dust. And, as professionals in the field are required to wear gloves due to health and safety precautions, the Glove Touch feature increases touch sensitivity, allowing you to use the device while wearing gloves, ensuring quick and convenient use.

In addition to being physically built to last, devices must protect sensitive information that is critical to business operations. The Galaxy XCover 5’s hardware is protected by Samsung Knox, the company’s defense security platform that offers true protection from end-to-end, with security built into all layers of the device, from the chip to the applications. Samsung Knox protects confidential business information in real time and responds preventively to increasingly advanced malware and malicious threats.

Integration with the Samsung Partner Ecosystem

Galaxy XCover 5 has also been enhanced with unique mobility solutions, made available by partners, for use in a wide range of business scenarios, including the ability to integrate the function “walkie talkie” in Microsoft Teams. The function “push-to-talk” allows users to keep in touch with anyone throughout the day, at the touch of a button, thus facilitating communication between colleagues. You can also configure which applications can be started with the XCover Key – a personalized feature that offers one-touch access to the applications you use most often, such as the LED flashlight, emergency calls or maps.

Best Performance

Equipped with powerful processor Exynos 850, 4GB of RAM and up to 64GB of internal storage, the Galaxy XCover 5 has the power to keep up with the rigorous demands of your business. The 3,000mAh long-life replaceable battery also supports fast charging via USB and POGO pins, so you can spend less time plugged in and more time dedicated to the task at hand.

Galaxy XCover 5 with Professional Level Camera

The Galaxy XCover 5 comes equipped with a single 16MP rear camera (F1.8), which provides high clarity, making it easy to capture professional quality images and videos. The Live Focus feature allows the subject of your photo to stand out, and the 5MP front camera (F2.2) is ideal for video conferencing. In addition, the inclusion of Samsung Knox Capture also allows enterprise-grade scanning directly to your phone at a competitive price, without compromising device performance.

Convenient Features

The XCover 5 is also full of other convenient features that will help users work and outdoor activities. The LED flashlight on the back of the phone, next to the camera, can be used as a flashlight, contributing to a better view in darker environments. The Galaxy XCover 5 is also equipped with an NFC chip that allows the phone to be used as a wallet or transport card, making it ideal for professionals who use public transport to get to work.
