A unveiled Samsung smartphone with the model number, named SM-G930F has been leaked on the Geekbench benchmark database. The device was certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance last month and is expected to be the Galaxy Xcover , the successor of the Galaxy Xcover 3, which was released in 2015.
According to the benchmark listing, the Samsung Galaxy Xcover 4 will be powered by the developed in-house Exynos 7570 quad-core SoC, which might be paired with 2GB of RAM. The Exynos 7570 is Samsung’s first entry-level chipset manufactured on a 14nm FinFET process. When comparing to its predecessor, the Exynos 7570 is claimed to gain 70% higher performance while using 30% less power. The chipset integrates the Mali-T720 GPU for handling graphics and supports 720 x 1280 HD resolution. Although the Geekbench listing doesn’t mention anything about the screen, we know that the Galaxy Xcover 4 will just come with an HD resolution display. The main camera will likely be upgraded from 5MP in its pressdesscor to 8MP, while the front facing camera might jump to a 5MP unit.
According to the Geekbench listing, the smartphone is being tested on the Android 7.0 Nougat OS, which means the Galaxy Xcover 4 will run on Android Nougat at launch instead of the older Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow OS.
Similar to previous Galaxy Xcover devices, the Galaxy Xcover 4 will definitely own the IP68 certification for dust and water resistance, along with MIL-STD-810G certification. The smartphone will target at users who want a tough no-nonsense device so that they can use in the most extreme conditions without having to worry about it being damaged.
The Galaxy Xcover 4 could be possibly introduced at Samsung’s Mobile World Congress 2017 press conference in Barcelona on 26th this month.
