Samsung to unveil Galaxy Xcover 2 rugged smartphone

MWC 2013 will sorely miss the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone – now scheduled for March 22 – but to somewhat compensate for this Samsung has announced it will present the Galaxy Xcover 2, which is a rugged smartphone that meets the IP65 military standard.

As such the Xcover 2 is resistant to water, shock, dirt and dust. It sports a 1000 MHz Marvell MG2 processor and offers 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, a rear 5 MP camera, one front 0.3 MP camera, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, a 1700 mAh battery, a built-in GPS system and finally a 4-inch sensor WVGA display at 480 x 800 pixels.

The Samsung Xcover 2 will run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean when it launches. Pricing is unknown as of now.
