Samsung Galaxy XCover 3 is a tough midranger and not just another galaxy
Samsung has promised that it wouldn’t be producing much smartphones in 2015. In fact, a 20% decrease in number of models was insinuated by a top-ranking Samsung official. But hey, why don’t we make one more Galaxy? The design guy asked: And then the Samsung Galaxy Core Active Plus Duos Ace was born. OK, enough of the kidding.
Samsung Galaxy XCover 3, following the footsteps of the Galaxy XCover 2 that was released in early 2013, is a rugged midrange device. Unlike the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active and the likes, this one isn’t going to cost an arm and a leg.
The Galaxy XCover 3 is reportedly coming with 4.8-inch WVGA display. The sturdy-looking smartphone will be powered by a Marvell Armada PXA1908 chipset paired with a 1.2GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage.
The upcoming handset will be running on Android 4.4.4 KitKat OS. Despite all the ruggedness, there’s still space for fancy as a 2-megapixel camera stands in the front for selfie taking. The device will feature a 5MP main camera and LED flash at the back.
There’s no word on the exact IP certification and selling points of this XCover 3 phone but we can bet a few dollars that it features dust and water resistance. There’s still no word on when this device is coming out officially.
