Samsung plans rugged Galaxy Xcover 3 smartphone

The world of smartphones now eagerly awaits the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy S6 handset but this does not mean Samsung has only this model in the works. In fact the Korean company has another interesting smartphone in the pipeline and while it will not impress with tech specs, the device will excel in the durability category.

The upcoming device is currently known as Galaxy Xcover 3. It will bring IP67 compliance to the table, which means that it will be dirt-, water- and temperature-resistant. Quite naturally the Galaxy Xcover 3 will target active people who like to talk on their phones while hiking, biking, running, you name it.

The Galaxy Xcover 3 is based on a 64-bit Armada PXA1908 quad-core processor at 1.2 GHz and has integrated Vivante GC700UL graphics, support for OpenGL ES 3.0 and LTE, a 4.8-inch IPS display at WVGA resolution (800 x 480 pixels), 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal memory, a microSD card slot, one rear 5 MP camera and another front camera at 2 MP, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a GPS receiver and various sensors.

When released the Galaxy Xcover 3 will be running Android 4.4.4 KitKat. The price of the phone is still unknown.
