The Samsung Galaxy family has been so complete, comprehensive and diverse to the point where every different demographic has at least 3-4 members of the Galaxy family. However; Samsung have decided to introduce something a little bit different this time, and its called the Galaxy XCover.
Samsung’s hoping to fill the “rugged device” gaping hole by announcing the Galaxy Xcover, the world’s first Android device with IP67 certification; which means it can be submerged in water up to 1 meter deep and can hold its own against a continual onslaught of dirt and dust. The Xcover will offer Gingerbread out-of-box, and features a 3.6-inch scratch-resistant display, a 3.2 megapixel camera with LED flash, and 7.2Mbps HSDPA. The company’s still vague on the other details, such as pricing and availability; the only country announced so far is Germany, which should see the device sometime in October. We hope the device will have a wider distribution; we know for a fact Germans aren’t the only folks on this Earth that are hard on their phones. Press after the break.
