Samsung to bring the removable battery phone back XCover Pro

Samsung’s new phone the XCover Pro is being brought to the market as a rugged smartphone with a removable battery, which is almost unseen by most current smartphones.

So if you are going to a festival or on a long camping trip you will be able to swap out the 4,050mAh battery with a fresh one, removing the need for charging your battery on the move.

Launched in Finland this month, it took all by surprise as no-one saw it coming.

Aside from the removable battery the key unique selling point to this handset is the rugged design, Samsung even say it should survive the elements.

With an IP68 dust and water resistance and the ability to withstand a 1.5 meter fall it definitely sounds like it’s built of the right stuff.

Dont worry about taking your gloves off in the cold either as you can supposedly still activate the screen despite not using skin contact.

With a 6.3-inch 1080p LCD display, Exynos 9611 chipset, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage. Dual rear cameras and a 25 megapixel main lens, alongside a 8mp wide angle.

However, despite all the great features the phone will be stuck with the Android Pie as opposed to the more recent Android 10.

You can pick up the handset sim free in the UK for around £220, so if you are interested in trading in your JCB handset why not give it a try.
