Dubbed few months back, Samsung’s water, dust and scratch resistant Android smartphone – Samsung Galaxy Xcover is now available from UK-based retailer Clove.
The new handset is IP67 certified, and features a 3.6 inch HVGA (480 x 320) Gorilla Glass display, TouchWiz UI, HSDPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, 3.5mm headset jack, Bluetooth 3.0, 3.2MP camera with autofocus and LED flash, 800MHz processor, 512MB of RAM,150MB of storage space, and MicroSD card support (up to 32GB). If you don’t know, Samsung claims that the Galaxy Xcover can survive under a meter of water for up to 30 minutes.
Retailed in the UK as Galaxy Extreme Xcover S5690, the Galaxy Xcover S5690 runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and an official update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is probably out of the question.
The device is available for £226 (345 USD or 270 EUR) SIM-free and unlocked. The sales package includes a 2GB microSD memory card with full SD adapter, a 3-pin UK mains charger and a USB Cable.
Today, customers who want to purchase this rugged Android-based smartphone can head over to Clove UK.
