Samsung’s Galaxy Xcover line of ruggedized smartphones will soon get a new member, following up the Galaxy Xcover6 Pro from mid-2022. It’s apparently going to be called Galaxy Xcover 7, and some official-looking renders of it have been leaked today.
The name leaves room for a Pro version to either launch alongside it or at some later point. The Xcover 7, as you can see, has a single rear camera and a rugged build. The rear panel is allegedly user-removable too.

On the left side, there’s the customizable Xcover button, which you can use for pretty much anything you want – starting an app, push-to-talk, barcode scanning, you name it, you can set it.
As its predecessors, expect the Xcover 7 to feature MIL-STD-810H compliance as well as IP68 dust and water resistance. It should also resist drops on hard surfaces like concrete.
Unfortunately the specs of the Xcover 7 still haven’t been outed, but don’t expect high-end innards. The Xcover6 Pro from last year was powered by the Snapdragon 778G SoC, and that was Pro branded. Thus, a Snapdragon 6-series or an Exynos 1xxx is not out of the question at all for this one.
