Samsung Galaxy Xcover 4 specs reveal Exynos 7570 chipset inside
It's been almost two years since Samsung last added to its Galaxy Xcover smartphone line. For those unfamiliar, the series focuses on delivering a rugged build that can withstand harsh terrain, and at a much cheaper cost than Sammy's flagship tier Galaxy S Active range. During the latter stages of January, an unannounced Galaxy Xcover 4 gained Wi-Fi certification and now, we have some insight as to the specs. 

Released in April 2015, the Samsung Galaxy Xcover 3 isn't much to write home about on the specs front. With a budget Marvell Armada PXA1908 chipset, 1.5 GB RAM and a 4.5-inch, 480 x 800 display, it certainly won't win any awards for performance. Its main attraction is its IP67 rating, which makes it resistant to water, dust, shock and vibration while allowing it to withstand temperatures that ordinary gadgets cannot handle. 

Per information spotted through the performance-testing app Geekbench, the Galaxy Xcover 4 (SM-G930F) will be furnished with Samsung's budget Exynos 7570 chipset, along with 2 GB of RAM. The main processor is accompanied by Mali-T720 graphics, which can support resolutions of up to 720 x 1280. Here's hoping the display of the Xcover 4 takes advantage of these capabilities, and doesn't stick at 480 x 800.

Notably, Geekbench references Android 7.0 Nougat, so prospective Xcover owners can look forward to using the latest flavor of Google's firmware right off the bat. There's no word on an announcement as yet, but we will, of course, pass on any further details as they become available
