Samsung appears to be gearing up to introduce a new rugged handset under the XCover lineup – the Samsung Galaxy XCover Pro 2 as we just spotted on the Geekbench benchmark database. The handset made an appearance on the benchmark database website with model number SM-G736B. The benchmark listing reveals some key specifications of the upcoming Samsung rugged smartphone. Let us take a closer look at Samsung Galaxy XCover 2 Geekbench benchmark scores and specifications.

Samsung Galaxy XCover Pro 2 Will Boot Android 12 Out of the Box!

The upcoming Galaxy XCover Pro 2 with model number SM-G736B appeared on the Geekbench 5 database website. The handset scored 766 points in the single-core round of the Geekbench 5 test. Whereas, in the multi-core round, the score was recorded as 2722 points.

The benchmark listing reveals that the handset will be powered by an octa-core processor with codename lahaina. Out of these eight cores, four cores will be clocked at 1.80GHz frequency. While the remaining four will be clocked at 2.40GHz frequency. Based on the codename and the cluster configuration, it appears that the upcoming Galaxy XCover Pro 2 will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G processor.

To those unaware, the Snapdragon 778G is based on TSMC’s 6nm fabrication process and brings with it an integrated Adreno 642L GPU. This is the same processor that powers several other mid-range handsets including Xiaomi 11 Lite NE 5G, Realme 9 Speed Edition, Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G, and Realme GT Master Edition.

The benchmark listing further reveals that the handset will be equipped with 6GB of RAM. It will come pre-loaded with Android 12, but as usual, expect to see OneUI skin on top of Android. Unfortunately, nothing else has been revealed about the device as of now. However, we can hope that the device will appear on other certification websites in the coming days/weeks.
