Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2 announced - rugged Jelly Bean phone lets you snap underwater
The rumored Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2 is official now, and it is the most ruggedness you will find in an android 4.1 Jell Bean device. The Xcover 2 is shock- and dustproof, as well as IP67 certified, which means it can dip its toes in the water, or dive headfirst up to three feet and stay there for half an hour.
Underwater photography is also possible with the dedicated camera key, so it could be your next dream spring-break-in-Cancun coral-reef-diving phone. There's predownloaded Google Maps data, A-GPS with GLONASS support, and Samsung has put a decent 1,700 mAh battery in the device, as well as a couple of active lifestyle apps like Cardio Trainer Pro.
The specs are nothing to write home about otherwise, but the price is unlikely to make you cringe either, though the exact number it is not disclosed yet:
