New Samsung device visits FCC, could be the Galaxy Xcover 5

New Samsung device visits FCC, could be the Galaxy Xcover 5

Back in March 2017, Samsung introduced a unit that they called the Galaxy Xcover 4. If what we are seeing on FCC right now is anything to go by, the company might be working on the successor to this unit, and it should be called Xcover 5.

A new Samsung smartphone with model number SM-G398FN/DS was recently at the FCC, and it has been certified for release. We don’t know much about this unit from the listing on FCC, but we do know that it has a 2800mAh battery with the same power and voltage as the battery that came with the Xcover 4.

While that is about how much we know of the unit from FCC, GeekBench makes it known that there would be an Exynos 7885 chipset under the hood, and the unit will launch with Android Pie out of the box. We expect that there would be room for update to Android Q sometimes later, but that is not the discussion for today.

Following some listing on a Dutch retailer website, this unit could sell at EUR250 and be made available on June 4, 2019. It needs no telling that everything here should be taken with a pinch of salt till Samsung makes things official with an announcement of their own.
