Samsung Galaxy Xcover 4 arrives in Europe in late April


It looks like Samsung's rugged mid-range smartphone, the Xcover 4, might be introduced in Europe and United States around the same time. At least one UK retailer confirmed it would start selling the device later this month, which comes in line with our previous report concerning the Xcover 4's availability in the US.

According to Clove UK, Samsung Galaxy Xcover 4 will be available for purchase on April 24 for £249. Unfortunately, not many things have been improved over the previous model. In fact, the most important are related to the software that runs on the rugged phone and the amount of RAM.

Unlike the previous Xcover model that was launched two years ago, the new phone comes with Android 7.0 Nougat right out of the box.

Another trait that makes it stand out from other handsets in the same price range is the MIL-STD 810G certification, which makes it capable of withstanding drops from height. It's also worth noting the phone is P68 rated, so it will most likely survive immersion in fresh water at a depth of 1.5 meters for up to 30 minutes.

Other than that, its specs are totally unimpressive by today's standards. The Galaxy Xcover 4 features a 5-inch display with HD (720p) resolution, as well as a 13-megapixel camera on the back.

On the inside, the phone packs a 1.4GHz quad-core processor, 2GB RAM and 16GB of internal memory, which can be further expanded via microSD card. Other highlights of the rugged smartphone include a 5-megapixel selfie camera and a 2,800 mAh battery.
