While you can spend extra money on your expensive packaging main phone In a rugged condition, you are still risking a valuable asset.
Samsung makes products that are powerful, light, and purposefully designed for fieldwork, and on Friday announced its latest smartphone and tablet designed to help you get work done outside of the office.
The Galaxy XCover6 Pro It is Samsung’s latest smartphone designed for frontline workers. In the past, it was common to see mid-range specs in phones designed for work use, so it’s refreshing to see Samsung release a phone built for the modern worker with the promise of four Android updates.
Samsung also announced the release of Tab Active 4 Pro A tablet that can connect via Wi-Fi or even 5G, with support for the S Pen and many other features. It’s a device you can commit to using with your business for years thanks to the promise of three operating system updates and five years of security updates. It’s now available for a starting price of $649.
Samsung Galaxy XCover6 Pro
The Galaxy XCover6 Pro The smartphone is a fairly solid device with a thickness of only 9.9 mm. Inside this elegant form factor we find a 4,050mAh removable battery, Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G processor, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage with microSD card slot, and a 50MP main camera. It uses Corning Gorilla Glass Victus Plus and a 6.6-inch LCD Infinity-V display, along with a side fingerprint sensor. It’s also nice to see a 3.5mm headphone jack. The replaceable battery is a rare find in 2022 and something that helps ensure that the device can be used for years.
As expected, the XCover6 Pro is built to withstand the elements, with IP68 and MIL-STD-810H ratings. Two programmable keys are available for your organization’s most frequently used function, such as mPOS or PTT. Samsung DeX support is also provided so that the XCover6 Pro can act as the brains behind a larger screen experience while maintaining Samsung Knox security profiles on the phone.
Enhanced volume, glove support, and dedicated buttons help make the phone useful for first responders and frontline workers. XCover6 Pro will be available in the US on October 20 through select carriers, starting at $599.99, with later availability directly through Samsung and through other partners.
