Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2 Preview
Samsung Galaxy Xcover 2 is powered by Jelly Bean (Android 4.1.2) OS with TouchWiz UI. At 148 grams, the phone is a little too heavy for a budget smartphone. Like the original Xcover, the phone also has IP67 certification for resistance against shock, dust and water. The 4” WVGA display is equipped with scratch resistant glass, proximity sensor and light sensor.
Other internal components are 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage and 1700mAh battery. On the back there’s a 5Mp camera, which is nicely equipped with autofocus, LED flash, 720p video recording, exposure compensation, smile detection, while balance presets, ISO control, geo tagging, burst mode, effects, scenes and panorama.
There’s also a VGA camera on the front. The HSDPA 14.4Mbps data connection may be too slow for some users, but it should be enough for average usages. Along with standard Android apps, Samsung also adds its own proprietary apps including Smart Stay, Best Shot, S Voice, S- Cloud, ChatON and others.
