Samsung and Microsoft Together Bring Mid-Range Smartphones

Samsung, Microsoft bring enterprise-grade rugged smartphone

Joining hands together, Samsung and Microsoft have brought an enterprise-grade rugged, mid-range $499 phone for first-line workers like flight attendants, construction workers or nurses.

Named “Galaxy XCover Pro” is the South Korean major’s stab at making an enterprise-edition smartphone, much in the same way last year’s Tab Active Pro filled that niche in a tablet.

It marks a joint venture with Microsoft, using the company’s recently announced Walkie Talkie function in Microsoft Teams (a text and video chat platform integrated with Microsoft’s suite of Office tools) to “enable frontline workers” and “deliver new mobile-enabled business solutions”, Gizomodo reported on Sunday.

Talking about the specifications, the phone is meant to be very rugged but without the usual bulk that comes with that.

It has an IP68 rating, Military Standard 810 certification and the promise that it will survive a drop from 1.5 metre (4.9 feet) without a case, it should definitely be able to withstand quite a bit of abuse.

As Samsung stressed during our briefing, the phone is meant for all-day use in the field, with a 4,050 mAh replaceable battery (yes, you read that right, you can replace the battery just like on phones from a few years ago), according to TechCrunch.

The phone will feature 4GB RAM and 64GB storage space, but you can extend that up to 512GB thanks to the built-in microSD slot. (IANS)
