Samsung Galaxy Xcover 4 could be announced soon

We haven't seen another Galaxy Xcover rugged smartphone since Samsung launched the third model back in April 2015. For whatever reason, Samsung launches new Xcover handsets once every two years, so we could say this is a biennial series.

Since the last Xcover smartphone was launched back in 2015, we're expecting a brand new rugged phone from Samsung this year. Well, it looks like the unannounced Xcover 4 has just made appearance at Wi-Fi Alliance, which puts it one step closer to release.

An unknown Samsung handset with model number SM-G390F has been granted Wi-Fi certification recently. We believe this is the Xcover 4 since the predecessor has model number in the same class: SM-G388F.

The only other piece of information about the Xcover 4 that we've learned from Wi-Fi Alliance is the fact that it will run Android 7.0 Nougat right out of the box.

There's a high chance that Samsung will announce the Xcover at MWC 2017 in late February since the South Korean handset maker won't be introducing the Galaxy S8 flagship at the trade fair, but we're still waiting for more details to confirm it.
