Apart from consistently delivering some of the best Android smartphones, Samsung has also been manufacturing ultra-rugged handsets via its Galaxy XCover range. In the middle of 2022, it launched the Galaxy XCover 6 Pro (review) which has not been refreshed—until now. However, it appears the latest entry to the range, perhaps a successor of sorts, might be around the corner as an alleged photo of the Galaxy XCover 7 is bandied around.

Samsung Galaxy XCover 7 design and a missing Pro branding

As the name implies, the device is missing the Pro moniker (via Android Headlines), which might suggest slightly muted internal and external features compared to the Galaxy XCover 6 Pro. This is also seen from the back of the Galaxy XCover 7 having one less primary camera, which could most likely mean the 8 MP ultra-wide snapper being dropped while retaining the same 50 MP sensor.

Based on the other looks, the Galaxy XCover 7 will sport a new rear panel with a suitcase design combined with side bumps, delivering a tougher look compared to the Galaxy XCover 6 Pro. There is still a programmable button that is tucked away on the left side while the power and volume rocker reside on the right.

In front, the Galaxy XCover 7 falls back upon a familiar notched display. In addition, the top and bottom bezels do appear thick and prominent as with the Galaxy XCover 6 Pro. Presumably, the two might share the same 6.6-inch IPS LCD screen with Full HD resolution and a 120 Hz refresh rate.

Possible Samsung Galaxy XCover 7 specifications and features

Beyond the design, however, nothing else about the Galaxy XCover 7 has been confirmed. It is safe to say that the MIL-STD-810H military certification will be retained alongside IP68 dust and water resistance. In addition, protection against drops on concrete from a certain height could also be included as one of the rugged features of the upcoming phone.

It's unclear if the internal hardware will be powered by the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G SoC or a new in-house Exynos chip from Samsung. Neither are there details about the battery capacity and memory configuration of the device. However, with the Galaxy XCover 7's existence already discovered, we may not need to wait long to confirm all of these including its price and availability.

In terms of looks, what do you think of the Samsung Galaxy XCover 7? Do you prefer it over the current rugged Galaxy XCover Pro 6? Share your answers with us in the comments.

I still remember how amazed I was when I first got hold of the Nokia 3210 back when I was a kid, and it was during that time I developed my love for technology, particularly for mobile phones. I started sharing my knowledge through writing in different blogs and forums back in Nokia Nseries era. I even make videos before where I put different phones side-by-side. Today, I'm still an avid enthusiast of smartphones, but my interests have evolved into smart devices and electric vehicles.
