Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. recently unveiled the new Galaxy XCover Pro, a smartphone designed and engineered for frontline workers across a variety of industries around the world. The Galaxy XCover Pro is an enterprise-ready smartphone, delivering a rugged device for both field and customer-facing settings. The Galaxy XCover Pro features include an immersive display, long-lasting battery and protection by the Samsung Knox security platform. In addition, the device is enhanced with unique partner-enabled mobility solutions for use in a wide range of business scenarios, including the ability to integrate the newly announced walkie talkie capability in Microsoft Teams.

The device is IP68 water and dust resistant, capable of withstanding drops of up to 1.5m, even without a case, and is MIL-STD 810G certified for reliable protection against extreme altitude, humidity, and other severe environmental conditions. Pogo pin charging support and compatibility with third-party charging docks ensure the phone is powered quickly, and a 4,050mAh battery lasts long after the day is done.
