Say hello to the newest member of Samsung’s very durable Xcover device line-up, the 4.99-inch Samsung Galaxy Xcover 4. The Xcover series focuses on toughness and resilience and the new Xcover delivers on that promise with IP68 dust and water resistance, as well as operability in extreme temperatures, thanks to its compliance with certain US Military Standards (US MIL-STD-810G).
