A new Samsung smartphone with the model number SM-G398 was spotted last month on FCC. While there is no official confirmation from the company, it was then rumored to be launched as Galaxy XCover 5. The press renders and key specifications of the device are now leaked online. Also, the company will reportedly launch it as the Galaxy XCover 4S instead of Galaxy XCover 5. On the design front, the upcoming Galaxy XCover 4S looks the same as the Galaxy XCover 4.
While the power button is placed on the right edge, the volume rocker and XCover Key are on the left edge. The XCover Key on the Galaxy XCover 4S now has an orange accent. The device is also IP68 certified for water and dust resistance and MIL-STD 810G certified for its durability. It still comes with a removable back panel and also sports removable battery. On the front, the Galaxy XCover 4S sports a 5-inch IPS display with HD (1280 x 720 pixels) resolution and 16:9 aspect ratio.
Beneath the display are the three physical navigation buttons for multitasking, home, and back (left to right). In terms of optics, the Galaxy XCover 4S comes with a 16MP camera on the rear with f/1.7 aperture and a 5MP selfie camera on the front with f/2.2 aperture. Under the hood, the device comes powered by the Exynos 7885 octa-core processor clocked at 2.2GHz. It packs 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage that can be further expandable using a MicroSD card.
As seen on its predecessor, the new Galaxy XCover 4S also comes backed by a 2,800mAh removable battery. It measures 9.7mm in thickness and weighs 172 grams. While the Galaxy XCover 4 came with MicroUSB port for charging, the new Galaxy XCover 4S comes with the modern USB Type-C port. Connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, NFC, 3.5mm audio jack, and USB Type-C port. According to the source, the Samsung Galaxy XCover 4S will be priced at EUR 250 (approx USD 280 / INR 19,500) and will go on sale from June 12th. Stay tuned on Phone Radar for more details!
