Samsung Galaxy XCover unveiled

If your phone gets a bit of a battering on a daily basis, the Samsung Galaxy XCover might be the ideal replacement when it finally gives in.

That's because the Galaxy XCover is designed to battle the elements. Nothing new there, phones like the Motorola Wilder and the Sonim JCB already do just that. But the difference here is that the Galaxy XCover doesn't look like a rugged phone and has features you perhaps wouldn't expect on a handset of this kind.

According to Pocket-lint, it is designed to cope with water, dust and the kind of knocks it would get in the trades, but it also offers the likes of Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) for the OS and Samsung's Social Hub, along with a 3.6-inch scratch-resistant display, a 3.2-megapixel camera with LED flash, and 7.2Mbps HSDPA and Wi-Fi connectivity. All of that on a phone you can submerge in water up to 30 minutes. Not that we recommend you do that.

No price as yet, although Samsung is estimating a shelf date of around October.
