Samsung revealed the XCover 6 Pro phone, which comes with a shock-resistant design, with a removable battery, with mid-range specifications and hardware.
In the current period of the technical trend, companies focus on strong hardware, even at the expense of durability and manufacturing materials, so we see companies like Xiaomi launching their Boco -class phones , which feature strong hardware despite the economic price, in exchange for making the phone entirely of plastic. In general, tech companies are not currently interested in making steel phones enough, although today’s smartphone is more than just a device we use, it has become more of a travel companion that shares all the moments of our lives.
And because one of the success factors is to provide what the market lacks, Samsung noticed the lack of strong phones that are able to withstand in difficult conditions, so it decided to officially unveil its steel phone, the Samsung Galaxy “XCover 6 Pro”, which combines performance and strength in one unbreakable phone.
Samsung Galaxy XCover 6 Pro comes with a feature we haven’t seen in years
Since Steve Jobs announced the first iPhones in 2007 with a non-removable battery, other companies gradually started to follow his path, until it became rare to get a smartphone with a removable battery in 2022 – besides the headphone port, of course – was the obvious reason for taking these measures Back to water and dust resistance, we still remember how consumers opposed the idea of buying a phone with a non-removable battery, but Samsung came to remind us of the past and give us a feature that we missed for many years, as the XCover 6 Pro comes with a battery that can be removed and replaced with ease, according to the company’s description.
In addition, Samsung’s heavy-duty phone comes with many features, but perhaps the phone’s ability to withstand dust and water is the most important feature, as the phone comes with an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance and with MIL-STD-810 certification, which is a military standard that emphasizes The robust design of the device.
Water and dust resistance was not affected by the presence of a removable battery, and the process of replacing the battery in the phone is very simple, as was the case with old phones in the past, as this was prevalent on phones that were manufactured more than ten years ago.
Speaking of the XCover 6 Pro’s battery, it comes with a capacity of 4,050 mAh, with USB-C charging which can provide up to 15W of fast charging. The nice thing is that you can carry an additional spare battery for the phone instead of using the power bank. When the device’s battery runs out, you can easily change the battery and continue to use the device normally immediately afterwards without the obligation to connect the device via the cable to the power bank.
The durability and strength of the phone did not affect the design
Although it targets front-line workers and the industrial class rather than ordinary people, and comes as a rugged smartphone that promises to be ultra-resistant with a shock-resistant design, it hasn’t affected the exterior design significantly. The Samsung Galaxy Xcover 6 Pro is about 9.9 mm thick and weighs 235 grams.
The phone comes with a 6.6-inch FHD + TFT LCD screen with a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz covered with a Gorilla Glass Victus protection layer, which makes it possible to use the device when wet or using gloves without problems. The XCover 6 Pro comes with large bezels – compared to other phones – with a circular notch for the front camera.
Finally, the phone offers an additional programming button on the back, an idea that has become popular in many powerful phones. This button can be customized in a number of ways such as opening an app of your choice or performing a specific function such as turning on the flash .
Specifications and performance of the Samsung Galaxy XCover 6 Pro
It is clear that the main feature of the new Samsung phone is its resistance to water and dust with a removable battery, but that is not all, the phone comes with fairly strong specifications that make the device a fierce competitor to the popular strong phones, especially those directed to workers in the fields of work and front rows outside offices , which can be counted on the fingers.
As for the processor, the phone comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G octa-core processor with 6nm technology, which is capable of doing all the usual tasks quickly and efficiently with support for 5G connectivity, along with an Adreno 642L graphics card. The performance of the phone is boosted by 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The phone also provides a microSD card slot that enables the user to add storage capacity of up to 1 TB.
In terms of the operating system, the phone comes with Android 12 with the famous Samsung interface One UI 4.1, it also supports the Samsung Dex feature, and the device is likely to get four future Android upgrades and five years of security updates.
