The upcoming Samsung Galaxy XCover 5 is being keenly looked forward to for a couple of reasons. The specifications of the phone were revealed because of a leak that happened a while back. That helped in adding to the buzz, which was already quite high, surrounding the phone.
Apart from that, many are awaiting the launch of the phone as it is supposed to boast of a robust and highly durable nature. When a smartphone comes with a promise of being long-lasting and tough, it creates a lot of anticipation for it. Now, two weeks after the last major leak happened, we get a glimpse of the front design of the smartphone.
The front render of the soon to be launched device was put out by well-known leaker Evan Blass. According to the leaked image, the smartphone will not have any notch and have a punch-hole like new-age smartphones. Unlike many smartphones today where the display screen takes up most of the space at the front-end, the device will arrive with a large-sized chin and a forehead.
The render also shows that the device will have the utilitarian programmable XCover key on the left-hand corner. On the right side, you will be able to locate the power and volume buttons. At the top center will be the front-facing camera.
According to reports which came out earlier, the Galaxy XCover 5 would feature a TFT LCD panel that would be 5.3-inch wide and offer a resolution of 1600 x 720 pixels. The smartphone will run on the Exynos 850 SoC and have 4GB RAM along with 64GB internal storage.
The device is expected to become very popular with photography enthusiasts because of the high-quality camera and related features it will have. The smartphone is expected to feature a single 16MP sensor alongside an F/1.8 aperture lens on the rear end. On the front end, there will be a 5MP sensor with an f/2.2 aperture lens.
The phone, which supports only 4G connectivity, will be operated on the One UI 3.x, the mechanism of which is based on Android 11. Some of its other features like a 3,000mAh battery, a MicroSD card slot, 15W fast charging, Samsung Knox and Samsung Pay will appeal to a wide spectrum of consumers.
As stated earlier, one of the biggest selling points of the phone will be its tough exterior and durability. Not just that, the device is also said to be dust and water-resistant. While the price is yet to be known, there is a buzz about it being sold for €300 in the European market. As of now, it is being said that the phone will be initially sold only to businesses before being distributed in the commercial market.
