Samsung could bring the Xcover Pro to US markets later this year

Samsung might have not made a buzz with the launch of its recent rugged smartphone, but the market is not one to miss the amazing units launched by this company anyways. Dubbed Xcover Pro, the South Korean OEM has now been revealed to be in talks with both Microsoft and Verizon so that the phone gets into the US too.

This might not mean much for now, but we want to see it as a sign of goodwill that the device will also be featured in even more markets of the world.

For those who missed the launch, the phone comes with modern specs for a rugged device. Starting with a 6.3-inch screen carrying the kind of hole punch you would see on the Galaxy Note 10/ Note 10 Plus units, there is 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage for users.

The front is home to the single 13MP camera sensor which is backed up by a system of dual 25MP + 8MP snappers on the back. Under the hood is an Exynos 9611 chipset, and it remains to reason to see if that will be changed to Exynos for the US debut.

Finally, the phone carries an IP68 rating to ensure it stays fit against dust and water attacks. With an MIL-STD-810GG certification in place, this is one of the most rugged yet capable devices that you will find out there today.
