Samsung Xcover 2 to be released in UK in March
Samsung UK has announced official release details for the Samsung Xcover 2 Android smartphone. The device was announced a week ago with rugged features targeting consumers who may want to use it in a severe situation. According to the press release, the smartphone will make its way to UK market by March.
The device is IP67 certified, so it is dust and waterproof and can be submerged in water up to 1m depth for 30 min. The smartphone even lets you snap a shot underwater with the help of a dedicated camera key.
The smartphone features a 4-inch WVGA touch-screen, a 5MP snapper and a dual-core CPU. Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is the OS which powers the smartphone.
In other markets, the device is expected to be released around February 20, so it is not a surprise that the UK will get it in March. And certainly the smartphone is not a high-end device, but good for rough use.
