We have yet to see Samsung’s followup to the rugged Galaxy XCover 2, which we reviewed back in May 2013. That all may change soon, if this new leak proves correct. In a couple of new leaked photos, GSM Arena seems to have scored a sneak peak at the followup device, the Galaxy XCover 3.
Not only do we see photos of the device from the leak, we’re getting a handful of rumored specs to go along with it. The phone’s model number is SM-G388F, and will come with a Marvell Armada PXA1908 chipset, a quad-core 1.2GHz Cortex-A53 CPU and 1GB of RAM. Additionally, it will come with a 4.8-inch screen with 800 x 480 resolution, 8GB of internal storage, MicroSD support up to 32GB, as well as a 5MP rear-facing camera and a 2MP front-facing camera. The phone will also launch with Android 4.4.4 KitKat.
The photos released show a close, and surprisingly not so blurry, shot of the front and back of the device. The front definitely borrows design cues from the Galaxy S5 Active, with a physical home, back and recent apps key. The corners seem chunky and extremely rugged, which will come in handy if you’re using the device in a rough environment. The back of the device doesn’t really offer anything new when it comes to design. We’re seeing a flash, camera and a speaker towards the top edge of the device. The back cover has a few indented lines running horizontally, which definitely give the phone a more rugged look.
Other than that, we don’t have much information on the device. But remember, these are just rumors so far, so take these with a grain of salt. Pricing information and a release date has yet to surface, so we’ll have to wait and see what Samsung has in store for us in the coming months.
