Samsung launches military grade Galaxy Xcover 4

The smartphone is also expected to run on Android 7.0 Nougat.

2017 will soon come to a close and while it did not see the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy S8, many new smartphones were unveiled at the event.

Talking about the guts and galls of the smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy XCover 4 features an HD (720p) display resolution with a pixel density of 294ppi. The flagship device is also anticipated to be powered by the latest octa-core Snapdragon 865 processor and house 4 GB of RAM, as well as 64 GB of internal storage. The difference is not too great but it is bound to create a further market for the device as with the price cut, the phone price drops to the below Rs 30k segment in India. The phone substantially converges on survival in severe conditions and is also usable while wearing gloves, which means that it will work in freezing temperature without the need to take off gloves. Samsung has listed the phone on its German website.

The company did reveal at the end of its MWC event that its first major Unpacked press conference of the year will take place on March 29th in NY, hinting that's when its Galaxy S8 will be unveiled.

The leaked image also reveals a date and the screen reflects March 29, which incidentally matches with the launch date of the smartphone. Since the Galaxy Xcover 3 made its debut on the market back in April 2015, it makes flawless sense for Samsung to unveil its predecessor this year.

Reuters says Samsung is under enormous pressure to make sure the Galaxy S8 launch goes smoothly.

The South Korean Giant has announced the successor of the Galaxy Xcover 3 which was launched nearly two years ago.

The Samsung Galaxy Xcover 4 will be released in April with a price around $272. Color options include gold, black, and white.
