Smartphone producers, Samsung is now officially launching a new addition to it Galaxy series and this one is for rugged and extreme purposes. Welcome the Samsung Galaxy Xcover 4 smartphone which is expected to be released in April but before then, it would be a pleasure to walk you through the specs of this phone and what I feel about it. STAY.
DISPLAY OF THE SAMSUNG GALAXY XCOVER 4
This device packs a 5 inches screen, while it is enhanced with IPS LCD Capacitive TouchScreen capable of displaying up to 16M Colours.
It holds a display resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. The pixel density is 294 ppi and the display supports Multi-Touch and “Glove Touch” – this translates that you can navigate the screen with your gloves on. Now, that’s one “rugged” condition the device is adapted for.
SAMSUNG GALAXY XCOVER 4 DESIGN
When they say a phone is made for rugged and extreme purposes, are you thinking what I am thinking the body would be made of? Let’s find out.
As expected, the phone has a “rugged and solid” body, as visible in its appearance. The device measures 146.2 in length x 73.3 in breadth and 9.7 mm, while it weighs 172g (when weighed with the battery).
The Galaxy Xcover 4 has the volume buttons engineered to the left side of the device, the lock/power button to the right and 3 hard navigation keys just below the screen. The camera and flashlight can be found at the rear of the device just on the back plastic cover, as you would expect.
RAM, ROM AND OPERATING SYSTEM OF THE SAMSUNG GALAXY XCOVER 4
This device can only boast of a 2 GB RAM. I wouldn’t be so disappointed given that a phone created with a target for extreme conditions shouldn’t be too “specky”. Rather, it should be more on the rugged side. So I wasn’t expecting anything more than a 2 GB RAM.
Xcover 4 boasts of an internal storage of 16 GB which can be expanded to the capacity of 256 GB with the use of a micro SD card. While it runs on an Android operating system v7.0 Nougat.
SAMSUNG GALAXY XCOVER 4 CAMERA
Impressively featuring a 13 MP camera on the rear, it packs a 5 MP camera for the use of the “selfie people”. Quite a fair camera quality i should say.
BATTERY OF THE SAMSUNG GALAXY XCOVER 4 SMARTPHONE
This smartphone, rather disappointing packs a battery power of 2,800 mAh battery power. As at this point, it is unknown if it would support fast charging.
SAMSUNG GALAXY XCOVER 4 PRICE
The Samsung Galaxy Xcover 4 is expected to launch with a price tag of 259-euro ($272). The Nigeria equivalent of this would be around N90,000.
Don’t say it just yet. I think the price is a pretty inflated one. That amount for a 2 GB RAM smartphone is a No No for me. What do you think?
Then again, check the additional features and see if it is still worth it. Let us know your thoughts.
