Samsung is known for its flagship phones made using glass and metal materials. The Korean conglomerated also has a line of rugged of smartphones under Galaxy Xcover series. The latest of that lot, Samsung Galaxy Xcover 4 with model number SM-G390F has paid a quick visit to the Geekbench benchmarks listing website.
Samsung adds a new phone in the Xcover line every two years. Samsung Galaxy Xcover 4 (SM-G390F) is the long due upgrade to the 2015’s Galaxy Xcover 3.
As per Geekbench’s listing, the Galaxy Xcover 4 runs a quad-core Samsung Exynos 7570 chipset paired with 2GB of RAM. We hope that this phone packs at least 16GB or 32GB built-in storage considering Xcover 3 packed a measly 8GB of internal storage.
The Galaxy Xcover 4 runs Android 7.0 Nougat at the core with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI layered on top of it.
Previously, Samsung Galaxy Xcover 4’s model number SM-G390F appeared at a Wi-Fi certification listing.
The salient feature of the Xcover line is the water and dust resistance. Unlike most rugged phones which tend to look ugly, the Xcover series follows a trendy design of keeping the handset slim. Of course, there are types of grooves and texture on the phone to give it the best grip possible. However, these Xcover series of phones are more on the robust side than the rather better looking smartphones.
The Galaxy Xcover 3 has a 4.5-inch display with 480×800 pixel resolution. Running Android 4.4 Kitkat, the Xcover 3 packs a quad-core 1.2GHz chipset coupled with 1.5GB of RAM. This phone houses a 2,200mAh non-removable battery. Considering these specifications, the Galaxy Xcover 4 should have a decent hardware bump along with 4G LTE support.
Samsung Galaxy Xcover 4 (SM-G390F) may take centre stage at the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2017 which kicks off on February 27 in Barcelona, Spain. Needless to say, Samsung may not introduce the Xcover series in India any time soon.
