SAMSUNG Electronics has delivered on its promise to release a “business friendly, resource industry rugged smartphone that brings a whole range of tasks to your fingertips.

Samsung’s new Galaxy XCover Pro, a smartphone designed and engineered for frontline workers across a variety of industries around the world.

The Galaxy XCover Pro completely re-imagines the enterprise-ready smartphone, delivering a rugged, yet stylish device for both field and customer-facing settings. The Galaxy XCover Pro

builds on Samsung Galaxy smartphones’ premium legacy features including an immersive display, long-lasting battery and the protection by Samsung Knox security platform.

The device is also enhanced with unique partner-enabled mobility solutions for use in a wide range of business scenarios, including the ability to integrate the newly announced walkie talkie capability in Microsoft Teams.

Danny Mandrides, head of Enterprise & Government, Mobile Division, Samsung Electronics Australia, said the Galaxy XCover Pro is a result of the increased investment and commitment Samsung is making to the local resource sector market.

“Samsung is further extending business ready mobility solutions in 2020 with the launch of Galaxy XCover Pro, a smartphone designed for the demanding conditions of business users who need to operate in a range of tough environments.

“Microsoft and Samsung have a long history of bringing together the best possible hardware and software to help solve our customers’ challenges. The powerful combination of Microsoft Teams and the Galaxy XCover Pro builds on this partnership and will enable workforce transformation with the technology they need to be more collaborative, productive and secure

“This product is a major step for Samsung in extending our support to customers and partners in Australia.”

The XCover Pro is IP68 water and dust resistant, has been tested to withstand drops of up to 1.5m and is MIL-STD 810G certified3 for reliable protection against a wide range of severe environmental conditions. Pogo pin charging support and compatibility with third-party charging docks ensure the phone is powered as soon as the workday begins, and a 4,050mAh battery lasts long after the day is done. For times when even more power is needed, the battery is replaceable – just pop in a spare and keep going.
