Today, Samsung Electronics America announced the availability of the Galaxy XCover Pro, a new mobile solution for the frontline workers.
The rugged device is designed to help those in public sector, logistics, healthcare, manufacturing and other verticals work faster and more efficiently. It offers the durability frontline workers need as well as brings together integrated features, like Samsung Knox customization capabilities, push-to-talk, barcode scanning and other features to enable users to streamline workflows.
The he Galaxy XCover Pro has a IP68 rating, meaning it can handle dust and drops of up to 1.5 meters without a case and its MIL-STD 810G certification makes it reliable in extreme altitude, humidity, and other severe environmental conditions. It even supports users wearing gloves when Glove Mode is enabled.
Frontline workers move from call to call and site to site, often taking on different tasks in each location. The Galaxy XCover Pro simplifies their task workflows with two programmable buttons that can map to a variety of capabilities so users can quickly open whichever application or feature they most frequently use. Also, the Galaxy XCover Pro’s battery isn’t just long-lasting, it’s replaceable. When out servicing a long route, logistics professionals can replace the battery with a spare to keep the phone going as long as they need it. The device also supports pogo pin charging which means a user can simply drop the device into a charging dock at the end of a shift, and the next person can pick it up knowing it’s charged.
The device operates on Verizon’s ultrafast 4G LTE network, and, for devices on the Verizon network, the Galaxy XCoverPro will come preloaded with Verizon Push To Talk Plus. Verizon Push To Talk Plus enables super-efficient voice and multimedia communications to help keep your mobile workforce – including groups of up to 250 people – connected instantly.
The Galaxy XCover Pro is also built to integrate with Microsoft Teams. Later this year, the dedicated push-to-talk buttons on the XCover Pro will allow team members to communicate instantly with Walkie Talkie feature in Microsoft Teams.
The multi-purpose device is NFC-ready with security and reliability features from TEEgris, making it a mobile point of Sale (mPOS) system. Lastly, the XCover Pro will provide a minimum of two years of market availability from launch and three years of security updates to ensure business continuity.
Finally, the Galaxy XCover Pro is dual SIM ready, and will be dual SIM capable through an MR update in the second half of 2020. This means the device can support two distinct personas.
The device is priced at $499.99.
