The Xcover 3 is a sturdy phone that offers a 4.5” WVGA display, a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB of built-in storage, and a 2,200mAh battery. On the phone’s back is a 5-megapixel camera that can shoot underwater, and on the front a 2-megapixel sensor. Other specs include GPS sensors, compass, altimeter, LTE connectivity, and Android 4.4 KitKat (upgradeable later on to Lollipop).

The Xcover 3: Protected Against Rain, Vibration, Dust, and More

Just like the Galaxy S5 Active, the Galaxy Xcover 3 comes with a MIL-STD 810G certification, which means that it is salt, dust, rain, humidity, vibration, solar radiation, transport, and thermal shock resistant. Thanks to the IPS67 certifications, the phone can survive in 1m-deep water for half an hour, and no dust can reach it.

Samsung will tells us more about the phone at CeBIT next week, so stay tuned.
