Samsung has been launching enterprise-focused, rugged smartphones in select markets for quite some time. The XCover series debuted in 2011, addressing an audience that required durability over other functions. In recent years, Samsung released several iterations, including the XCover 5 and XCover 6 Pro, but they didn’t make it to India. However, that changes with the Samsung Galaxy XCover 7.

Samsung Announces Galaxy XCover 7

On Tuesday, the Korean tech giant released the device in India. The phone is available in two versions in the country: Standard Edition and Enterprise Edition. Samsung calls the phone a “perfect blend of military-grade durability, work continuity, and productivity.” This is the first-of-its-kind smartphone in India, which comes with exceptional durability.

The handset features a robust case and a fortified glass display (with Corning Gorilla Glass Victus+) and adheres to military-grade durability (MIL-STD-810H) standards. The phone is rigorously tested to withstand harsh environmental conditions, including extreme temperatures and rain.

Along with the military standards, the phone also comes with an IP68 water and dust resistance rating (submersion in up to 1.5 meters of water for up to 30 minutes), equivalent to most flagships. Last but not least, the smartphone can also withstand drops from a height of up to 1.5 meters, “ensuring rough handling or accidents do not impact operations.”

The phone has a water-drop notch on the front, a thick chin at the bottom, and a single camera lens on the rear panel. Users will find the power and volume buttons on the right frame, while there’s a customizable button on the left.

Out of the box, the smartphone comes with a large 6.6-inch FHD+ TFT screen that supports 60Hz refresh rate. However, unlike other phones, the XCover 7 can recognize touch inputs with leather gloves thinner than 2mm. This implies that enterprise users can use the device in wet environments like high humidity. However, underwater touch isn’t available, per the company’s official press release.

Under the hood, the rugged smartphone runs on the MediaTek Dimensity 6100 SoC, with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Users can also expand the storage up to 1TB via a microSD card. On the rear, users get a high-resolution 50MP (f/1.8) camera, and on the front, users get a 5MP (f/2.0) selfie shooter. The phone has only one camera sensor as it targets enterprise users who would use it to scan bar codes, take inventory pictures, and perform other business-related functions.

Under the tough exterior shell is a 4,050 mAh battery that is user-replaceable. The battery charges via a USB-C port and a POGO charging pin for “convenient recharging in any setting.” Other connectivity options on the smartphone include 5G, LTE, Wi-Fi 5, Wi-Fi Direct, Bluetooth v5.3, and NFC. Users also get a 3.5mm headphone jack. Additional features include Dolby Atmos speakers, Samsung Knox with Knox Vault, camera-based face recognition, and customizable keys.
