According to Roland Quandt on X, Samsung’s upcoming rugged phone, the Galaxy Xcover 7, is coming to Europe for less than €400. This isn’t a bad deal considering the overall state of rugged phones, which are often underpowered or run on a proprietary Android OS-based software with minimal support.
Choosing Samsung for your next rugged phone might not be such a bad idea. It’s rumored to have a 6.6-inch FHD+ display, 6/128GB of memory and going by past leaks, it features a Dimensity 6100+ SoC. It also ‘looks nice and boasts MIL-STD-810H military-grade standard and IP68 ingress protection.

If the pricing is indeed below €400, the Xcover 7 will surely be a competitive solution in this rather niche segment. Not to mention software support will likely be longer and more reliable compared to other less known brands.
