Samsung’s rugged Galaxy XCover lineup is reportedly getting a new member – Galaxy XCover Pro 2. While the company has not confirmed its arrival yet, rumours are that the device could be unveiled this summer. Now, some initial details about the Galaxy XCover Pro 2 have surfaced via the Geekbench listing.
Samsung Galaxy XCover Pro 2 has been spotted on the benchmarking site with the model number SM-G736B. It is listed to be powered by an octa-core processor code-named “lahaina“. It includes four cores clocked at 1.80GHz and the rest four are clocked at 2.4GHz. These details suggest that the Snapdragon 778G chipset will drive the Galaxy XCover Pro 2.
The new Samsung Galaxy rugged phone has been listed to have 6GB RAM. It will boot Android 12 OS with a layer of One UI 4 skin at the top. When tested on the Geekbench v5 platform, the device has scored 766 points and 2722 points in the single-core and multi-core tests, respectively.
Samsung Galaxy XCover Pro 2 could be the company’s first 5G phone in its XCover series of rugged smartphones. We can expect the device to have a user-removable battery, like the original Galaxy XCover Pro. The original XCover Pro was released in 2020 with a 6.3-inch LCD panel protected by Gorilla Glass 5. It is powered by the Exynos 9611 SoC, paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. The device features 25MP + 8MP dual rear cameras and a 13MP selfie camera. Galaxy XCover Pro is backed by a 4,050mAh battery with support for 15W fast charging.
Before the rumoured Galaxy XCover Pro 2 launch in the summer, the company will unveil a couple of new Galaxy A-series smartphones on March 17. You can read more about it here.
