Samsung has been developing some rugged phones for a while now, but they are not usually as aesthetically pleasing as the other devices which this OEM carries in its lineup. That is going to change with the new Xcover Pro which Samsung unveiled at CES – and you will soon see why.

If you were not listening for it, you might have missed all the details about this device due to the noise from the introduction of their Galaxy A71 and Galaxy A51. However, this unit is not one to just be forgotten, seeing as it carries a 6.3 inch 20:9 aspect ratio screen with the military grade rating that ensures it can withstand greater levels of abuse.

Speaking of design, we have a punch hole camera here, which kinds of reminds you of what we have on all of the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 units. So that you do not confuse this phone for those, the punch in the screen is placed at the top right corner as opposed to the top left or center.

To round off, we have 4GB of RAM under the hood, working with an Exynos 9611 chipset and onboard 64GB storage. There is Android 9 Pie out of the box, but there is a high chance the phone gets a bump to Android 10 later.

Using a 13MP snapper on the front and a dual combo of 25MP + 8MP unit on the back, a 4050mAh battery is designed to keep the lights on.
